"Supernatural" is a 1999 concept album by Santana. The songs on the album represent one man's personal emotions through its various Cuban and Latin rhythms. It went 15 times platinum in the US and won eight Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year.

The album, conceived by Clive Davis and A&R'd by Pete Ganbarg, was phenomenally successful, eventually selling over 25 million copies worldwide; it is generally seen to have revived Santana's dormant career. It included the hit single "Smooth", which featured Matchbox Twenty singer Rob Thomas on vocals, and was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 12 weeks. The follow-up single, "Maria Maria" (which featured The Product G&B), was #1 on the same chart for 10 weeks. Santana and Rob Thomas won 2 Grammys for their collaboration on the song "Smooth" while Santana and Everlast won another for the song "Put Your Lights On".

Among the other guest artists: Eric Clapton, Eagle-Eye Cherry, Lauryn Hill, Dave Matthews, and Cee-Lo.
