Naked to the World is the eighth album by Teena Marie, released in 1988. The album is a return to Marie's Soul/Funk roots following the experimentation of her previous album Emerald City, which had been a critical and commercial disappointment. The tracks "Call Me (I Got Yo Number)" and "The Once and Future Dream" are duets with Rick James.

Naked to the World peaked at #15 on the Black Albums chart and #65 on the Billboard Albums chart. Lead single "Ooo La La La" topped the US Black Singles chart, Marie's only single to achieve this.
