Guilty is the twenty-second studio album by American singer Barbra Streisand released on September 23, 1980 by Columbia Records.

After the success of the Bee Gees in the late 1970s, there was some time to write songs for other artists and Streisand, one of those artists, asked Gibb to write an album for her.
The biggest selling album of Barbra Streisand‘s career is also one of her least characteristic. The album was written and produced by Barry Gibb in association with his brothers and the producers of the Bee Gees, and in essence it sounds like a post-Saturday Night Fever Bee Gees album with vocals by Streisand. Gibb adapted his usual style somewhat, especially in slowing the tempos and leaving more room for the vocal, but his melodic style and the backup vocals, even when they are not sung by the Bee Gees, are typical of them. Still, the record was more hybrid than compromise, and the chart-topping single “Woman in Love” has a sinuous feel that is both right for Streisand and new for her. Other hits were the title song and “What Kind of Fool,” both duets with Gibb. (The song “Guilty” won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal by Duo or Group.)
