Aaron's Party (Come Get It) is the second studio album by American pop singer Aaron Carter. It serves as the follow-up to his international debut album. Aaron's Party was released in the fall of 2000 becoming the first album under Jive Records. This album was also certified 3× Platinum by the RIAA for selling over 3 million copies in the United States making it Carter's most successful album. The lead single "Aaron's Party (Come Get It)" was featured on the 2000 compilation album Now That's What I Call Music! 5.
All of the songs on the album were separated by interludes (except after track 12 for releases with bonus tracks), attached at the end of the previous song (thus the length of the tracks listed above include the length of the interlude). Their lengths spanned from a one-second-long interlude entitled "Let's Go" to a skit over a minute long entitled "Teacher".
In some regions, "(Have Some) Fun with the Funk" (also available on the Pokémon: The First Movie CD) and "Hang on Sloopy" were released as bonus tracks, bringing those releases' total amount of songs to 14. Some releases of the album also minorly differ; instead of "Hang on Sloopy" as a bonus track, the UK edition included "Jump, Jump", which also featured on the test pressing of the album. The US version notably omitted "Life Is a Party" (available on the Rugrats in Paris: The Movie CD).
The Japanese edition (as well has having both bonus tracks and a spoken "Aaron Message") had a completely different album cover; some versions of this cover include it being completely orange apart from a circle showing Carter's face at what looks like a party. The full version of this cover is the cover for some editions as well.
