Simpson's debut album Autobiography was released in July 2004. The album, composed of pop rock songs, reached number one on the US Billboard 200 albums chart, and was certified Platinum three times by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[2][3] On the United Kingdom albums chart, it reached number thirty-one and was certified Gold by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI).[4][5] The album sold three million copies in the US and produced three singles.[6] Simpson's debut single, "Pieces of Me", reached number five on the US Billboard Hot 100 and was certified Gold by the RIAA.[3][7] "La La", her third single, reached number eighty-six in the US and was certified Gold by the RIAA.[3][7]

Simpson's second album, I Am Me, was released in October 2005. It debuted at number one in the US and was later certified Platinum by the RIAA.[2][3] In the UK, the album reached number fifty.[4] I Am Me sold 900,000 copies in the US and spawned two top forty singles.[6][7] The album's lead single "Boyfriend", reached number eight in Australia, Simpson's second highest peak at the time, and was certified Gold by ARIA. The next single "L.O.V.E." reached number five in Australia and number twenty-two in the US.
