''Don't Be Cruel'' is the second album by American R&B singer Bobby Brown, released in 1988 on MCA Records. It includes the hit singles "Don't Be Cruel" and "My Prerogative", Brown's only number-one hit on the ''Billboard'' Hot 100. ''Don't Be Cruel'' was the best-selling album in 1989, eventually going eight times Platinum. This was the best selling "New Jack Swing" album at the time until Michael Jackson's 1991 album "Dangerous" was released. Bobby Brown won the grammy for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance in 1990. Brown followed the release of his album with a 120-date world tour.

"Don't Be Cruel" appeared in popular video game ''Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas'', playing on fictional New Jack Swing radio station CSR 103.9.

My Prerogative was later covered by Britney Spears in 2004 on her ''Greatest Hits: My Prerogative'' album, and released as a single.
