After several years collaborating with his siblings' band, The Osmonds, he embarked on a solo career in 1971.

Its follow-up entitled "Go Away Little Girl" topped the same chart in 1971.[1] Also in 1971 his debut studio album was released called The Donny Osmond Album. It peaked at number 13 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart.[2] His third studio release, Portrait of Donny, reached number six on the Billboard 200 and is his highest-charting album to date.[3] Its two singles became top ten hits on the pop chart: "Hey Girl" and "Puppy Love."[4] He released his fourth studio effort in 1972, Too Young. The record peaked at number 11 on the Billboard 200.[5] It spawned the top 20 pop hits: the title track and "Why."[4] In 1973, Alone Together marked his fifth studio album release and peaked at number 26 in the United States.[6] It spawned his cover of "The Twelfth of Never," which reached number eight on the Hot 100.[4] By the mid 1970s, Osmond reached adulthood adulthood and his career began to decline despite collaborations with his sister, Marie Osmond.[1] In 1976, he recorded an album of disco (Disco Train), which only reached number 145 on the Billboard 200.[7]

Although Osmond continued performing his popularity had declined. Yet, in 1989 he returned with the single "Soldier of Love."[1] It became his biggest hit in over a decade on the Hot 100, reaching number two in 1989.[8] His self-titled studio album was also released in 1989 and peaked at number 54 on the Billboard 200.[9] He followed it with 1990's Eyes Don't Lie, which reached number 177 on the all-genre chart.[10] It spawned the single "My Love Is a Fire," which climbed to number 21 on the Hot 100.[4] He worked on various film, television and theater projects during the remainder of the decade. He then released an album of show-tunes entitled This Is the Moment.[1] The project peaked at number 64 on the Billboard 200 list.[11] He then followed it with a collection of love songs in 2002 called Somewhere in Time.[1] In 2007, Osmond's studio album, Love Songs of the 70's, was his highest-charting record in many years, peaking at number 27 on the all-genre survey.[12] His most recent studio release is a collection of cover tunes, The Soundtrack of My Life.[1]
