Get It Right is the 29th studio album by American singer Aretha Franklin, released on July 14, 1983 by Arista Records. It was produced by Luther Vandross, following his successful teaming with the singer for the Gold-certified album, Jump to It, in 1982. Get It Right was not as commercially successful, and Franklin did not have Vandross produce any further albums.

The disc's title song became a number 1 hit on Billboard's R&B singles chart, but it stalled at only number 61 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album was a critical and commercial failure, selling about 200,000 copies in the US. It was re-issued on compact disc in the late 1990s.
