"Human Being" is the third album by Seal. It was released in 1998 as a tribute to the murdered rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls."Human Being" received mixed reviews ranging from being panned for its overtly dark and moody [http://www.rollingstone.com/reviews/album/101808/human_being Review at RollingStone.com Retrieved July 15 2007] feel to being described in terms such as "pop perfection." [http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:abfqxqujldte AllMusic Guide Review, Greg Prato Retrieved July 3 2007] The album failed to sell in the same way as his previous multi-Platinum album, "Seal (1994)".

A remix of "Lost My Faith" was featured over the closing credits of the 1999 film "Entrapment", and the song's single release was accompanied by a music video in which Seal is integrated into scenes from the film alongside Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
