Jocelyn Brown (born Jocelyn Lorette Brown, November 25 1950, in Kinston, North Carolina) is an R&B and dance music singer.

Although she has only one Billboard Hot 100 chart entry to her credit ("Somebody Else's Guy," #75 in 1984), she has an extensive background in the music industry and is considered legendary in the dance club music world. She has been a member of the groups Bad Girls, Inner Life, Salsoul Orchestra, Change (1980; vocalist together with Luther Vandross), Incognito and has sung background vocals for Luther Vandross, George Benson, John Lennon and others. She also joined Luther Vandross as co-lead singer on the legendary dance music album "The Glow of Love" by Change. She has over twenty hits on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, four of which have hit number one ("Love's Gonna Get You" in 1986, "Keep On Jumpin'" in 1996, "Something Goin' On" in 1997 and "Fun" in 1998). She continues to record house music and has had chart hits in the 21st century, including providing vocals to the track "I'm A Woman" for Cassius in 2002. Ms. Brown featured prominently on the Masters at Work project Nuyorican Soul in the late 1990s, a vinyl reunion with former Salsoul labelmate Vince Montana.

In the early 80s she was married Shaw and was credited as that on albums by Change for example. Brown also has a new single, "I Like It Just Like That" to be released via various artist compilation album sometime in 2007.

Since 1990, she has lived in London, England.
