All That I Am is the Platinum-certified second studio album from R&B singer Joe. Released in 1997, this was Joe's first album after signing with Jive Records and was considered his breakthrough album.

This album reached number 13 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and number four on the Billboard R&B albums chart. It was certified platinum by the RIAA.[4]

All That I Am features "All the Things (Your Man Won't Do)", originally featured on the soundtrack of Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, which reached number two on the US R&B chart and number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100; it sold 700,000 copies domestically and was certified gold by the RIAA.[5][6] The album also features "Don't Wanna Be a Player", which originally appeared on the soundtrack to the 1997 film Booty Call and reached number five on the US R&B chart and number 25 on the Hot 100. It, too, earned a gold certification for its sales of 500,000 copies.[7][8] Aside from these two songs, All That I Am features three singles: the lead single "The Love Scene", "Good Girls" and the title track. Although they received airplay on R&B radio stations, none registered on the Hot R&B Singles chart.

Pop group Backstreet Boys covered the song "No One Else Comes Close" on their 1999 album Millennium.[9]
