Album BackgroundEdit

"Rose Garden" was the first song written for the album and was partly inspired by a difficult break-up.

Nick Jonas wrote and co-wrote all tracks, and cut the album in eight days with producer John Fields, who also played bass.

The album has nine new numbers and a cover version of the Jonas Brothers song, "Tonight."

Nick originally wrote the song "World War III" for the album, but instead, it was used of the Jonas Brothers album, "Lines, Vines and Trying Times."

Jonas also wrote a song called "Oval Office" but the songs never appeared on the record because according to him, the song didn't sound good.

Chart PerformanceEdit

"Who I Am" debuted at number three with 82,000 on the Billboard 200. and has sold 179,000 copies in the United States.

Critical ReceptionEdit

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic called it "an awkward growth spurt, relying on songs designed as grooves but given performances too hemmed-in to be soulful and often undone by Nick’s thin teenage yelps, a sound whose resemblance to Michael Jackson only illustrates the distance between student and teacher."

Entertainment Weekly gave the album a "B" minus, writing that it "mostly plays like Take Your Kid to Work Day at the Anaheim House of Blues. Very accomplished, vaguely surprising — and a wee bit dull."
