Special Occasion is the second studio album from R&B singer Bobby Valentino. Valentino co-wrote over three quarters of the album, which also features songwriting and production from Tim & Bob, Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, Timbaland, Sean Garrett, Don Vito, Bryan-Michael Cox and Dre & Vidal. Due to a lawsuit with a UK artist who has been going by Bobby Valentino for over 35 years, the album in the United Kingdom is labelled as "Bobby" instead of "Bobby Valentino".
The album was set to be released on December 12, 2006, but was delayed until May 8, 2007. Special Occasion's first official single was the Rodney Jerkins-produced track "Turn the Page". The ballad features Valentino singing about trust and taking risks in a relationship. The album features guest appearances by Ludacris, Timbaland and Fabolous. The second single from the album is "Anonymous," featuring and produced by Timbaland.
Special Occasion debuted at No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling about 92,000 copies in its first week, just over one-half of his previous album's first-week sales. The album eventually peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. As of mid-2009 the album has sold approximately 550,000 copies making it certified Gold in the US.
