Something About You (Angela Bofill album). Something About You is the third studio album by the recording artist Angela Bofill, released in 1981. This was her first direct release through Arista Records, with Narada Michael Walden as producer and Clive Davis as executive.

Angela Tomasa Bofill (born May 2, 1954) is an American R&B singer-songwriter. Angela Bofill was born in Brooklyn, NY to a Cuban father and a Puerto Rican mother. She grew up listening to Latin music and was also inspired by African-American performers. Her weekends were taken up studying classical music and singing in a city chorus. It was as a teenager that her professional singing began.

The 1981 set Something About You was Angela Bofill’s first album for Arista. That meant it was overseen by industry guru Clive Davis, who was just starting to cement his legacy as a mentor to strong female singers. The album was produced by Narada Michael Walden, a veteran jazz drummer–turned–producer who'd soon hit it big working with Whitney Houston. While Something About You flattened some of the jazz pedigree that had made Bofill’s first albums so creatively successful, Davis and Walden helped win her a whole new audience with the snappy pop tunes Holdin’ Out for Love and Something.

Angela Bofill was born to a Cuban father and an Afro Puerto Rican mother. Growing up, listening to latin music, she was also inspired by the African-American performers in those days. During her childhood, her weekends were taken up studying classical music and singing in a city chorus. Something About You is the third album by the recording artist Angela Bofill, released in 1981. Between the releases of Angel of the Night and Something About You, Bofill left GRP Records and joined Arista, which distributed GRP at the time, hoping to expand on her crossover success. In spite of the controversies surrounding Bofill and GRP, the album managed to sell, but with less success than her first two albums.
