Triumph is the 14th studio album by the Jacksons, released on October 18, 1980 by Epic Records.

The album was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in the United States and peaked at No. 10 on the US Billboard Top LPs & Tape chart. Triumph sold three million copies worldwide in its original run. Hit singles from the album were "Lovely One", "Heartbreak Hotel" (which was later renamed "This Place Hotel" to avoid confusion with the Elvis Presley song of the same name), and "Can You Feel It".

The Jacksons shared lead vocals and solo spots on some songs on the album, but Michael Jackson, who had recently released his multi-platinum selling album Off the Wall (1979), handles most of the lead vocals and writing duties. Triumph was the Jacksons' first album to reach number-one on the US Billboard R&B Albums chart since Maybe Tomorrow in 1971. The album sold over two million copies worldwide, and the Jacksons did not release another studio LP until Victory in 1984. On December 10, 1980, Triumph achieved its Platinum certification in the United States for the sales of over one million copies in the country. It was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals in 1981.
