All That I Am is the second studio album by AmericanR&B singer Joe. It was by Jive Records on September 23, 1997 in the United States, marking his debut with the label. Widely considered his breakthrough album. All That I Am reached number 13 on the US Billboard 200 and number four on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. It was eventually certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[4]

The album 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]
