Diva is Lennox’s solo debut, and it’s 180° from her Eurythmics work. It’s a concept album about a very rich, powerful woman who’s trapped in her life. She’s surrounded by all the trappings of success, and looking for reality. It’s like a ten course meal, so you have to take in the whole album to get the complete message. The album isn’t for everyone, but those that like her voice and her music will find themselves playing this most every Sunday afternoon. Tap and hold to copy URL. Diva Tracklist.

But the music is strangely muted and understated. In fact, the album almost works best as one integrated mood piece rather than a collection of individual songs. While Lennox succeeds in carving out a personality distinct from her Eurythmics days with Diva, one can't help but crave a shot of former partner Dave Stewart's musical muscle.

The term "diva" is an honorific to be bestowed, not a title to be claimed. That alone gets Annie Lennox's 1992 solo debut off on the wrong foot. I don’t think this particular album really show her real talent for vocalization as in her latter works, but that’s simply the material she was expected to sing in this album, and she did, but the material was not a challenge for such a talented lady. This album was your rather traditional pop music stuff, and fairly well done in its direction, but Annie Lennox could probably sing and vocalize anything, its in her blood, like fire and oxygen or water and Earth.

Diva is the first solo album by Scottish singer/songwriter Annie Lennox, released in 1992. The album entered the UK album chart at n. and has since sold over . It was also a success in the . where it was a top 30 hit and has sold in excess of 2 million copies there.
