Imagination is the 4th studio album by American singer La Toya Jackson. It was released in 1986 on Private-I Records, who went bankrupt shortly after the release of the album. Due to the record company's financial problems, promotion was poor for the album and it failed to chart. This is one of La Toya's least successful albums, despite being a favorite among fans. Three singles were released, the first being "Baby Sister", which was released in Japan, followed by "He's a Pretender" and a remix of the title track.
The Baltimore Afro-American described the album's production as "pop-oriented", "well recorded and mixed". The "new wave" "Baby Sister" was complimented as "ear candy". Matthews, Carl. The Afro-American Apr 12, 1986 Allmusic singled out "How Do I Tell Them" as having an "instantly memorable chorus and gripping rhythmic structure" but dismissed the rest of the album as "disposable".
