Tiffany is the debut studio album by American singer Tiffany, released on September 15, 1987, by MCA Records. Prior to signing a recording contract with MCA Records in 1987, Tiffany had begun working with manager and record producer George Tobin several years earlier, possibly with some of the tracks recorded as early as when she was 12 years old. Initially, "Danny" was her first single released from her self-titled studio album; however the single failed to chart. To support the album and create a buzz for herself, Tiffany embarked on a shopping mall tour entitled "The Beautiful You: Celebrating the Good Life Shopping Mall Tour '87". The tour included Tiffany performing in shopping malls across the United States; at first to small audiences but by the end to much larger crowds as her popularity grew.
As her popularity grew during her tour, radio stations began to play Tiffany's cover version of Tommy James & the Shondells' song "I Think We're Alone Now". The song was quickly released as the album's second single; Tiffany's cover of "I Think We're Alone Now" became the singer's first No. 1 single both in the United States and United Kingdom. The album's follow-up single "Could've Been" became the singer's second No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and her first on the Adult Contemporary chart. With the help of those two singles, the album peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Pop Albums chart, staying for two weeks; replacing George Michael's Faith. At the age of 16 years, Tiffany became the youngest female artist to achieve a No. 1 album, the first female solo and third artist to chart on the Billboard 200 under the age of 18, and the youngest to have two consecutive No. 1 singles. Tiffany's rendition of the Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There" retitled "I Saw Him Standing There" provided a final success from the album. The album was certified quadruple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on April 5, 1988.
The album's final single, "Feelings of Forever" failed to reprise the success of Tiffany's three previous singles.
