"Ross" is a 1983 album by American singer Diana Ross, released on the RCA label. One of the few early-'80s albums released by the former Motown singer that didn't go gold during her seven-year tenure in the label. The songs "Pieces of Ice" and "Up Front" were two singles from this album. Five of the eight tracks were produced by Gary Katz, famed for his work with Steely Dan. Michael McDonald also contributed a track and backing vocals.

The album is not to be confused with a previous album by Diana Ross, also titled "Ross", which was released on the Motown label in 1978.
