''Affection'' is the first album by English pop and soul singer Lisa Stansfield, released in the UK, in November 1989, for BMG/Arista label. Written by her husband and musical collaborator Ian Devaney, former school mate Andy Morris (who left her band in 1993), and Lisa herself, the record was widely hailed as one of the finest debut albums ever by a British soul artist, going straight to number two in the UK Albums Chart.

The LP album, with its combination of pop, soul and dance music, went on to sell almost 5 million copies worldwide. It was released in multiple editions, in different countries and years, with alternative track listings, including six hit singles: "This Is the Right Time" (which does not feature on the original vinyl LP release), "All Around the World", "Live Together", "What Did I Do to You?" (which came out as a 12" EP), and "You Can't Deny It" (not released in the UK) and "People Hold On" (her very first major hit, performed with Coldcut, also in 1989, but only contained in the 2003 remastered compact disc edition). The original 1989 Arista Records United States version features noticeably refined mixes of several of the songs: including "What Did I Do To You?", "You Can't Deny It", "The Way You Want It" and a completely different remix of, "The Love In Me".

"All Around The World", which reached Number 1 in the UK Singles Chart, and Number 3 in the ''Billboard'' Hot 100 Pop Chart in the USA, was the first song by a white female artist, since Teena Marie's 1988 song "Ooo La La La" to reach the top of the U.S. R&B Chart. "You Can't Deny It", which was only released in the USA, also topped this latter chart.
