Brotherhood is the debut studio album by American R&B group 3T. The album was released in 1995 through MJJ Music and 550 Music.

Background[edit]

Produced by their uncle Michael Jackson, who also served as the executive producer with Kenneth Komisar, the album was released on Jackson's record label MJJ Music. In 1997, after 3T completed their tour, a Limited European Tour Edition was released that included a remix CD. The album was dedicated to the memory of the band members' mother, Delores "Dee Dee" Jackson (born April 1, 1955 - died August 27, 1994).

Commercial performance[edit]

Brotherhood sold three million copies worldwide. The album peaked at #127 on the US Billboard 200, while in the UK it peaked at #11 on the UK Albums Chart. Five singles were released: "Anything", "24/7" ", "Why" (a duet with Michael Jackson), "I Need You" (with Michael Jackson on backing vocals) and "Gotta Be You".
