Jordan Knight is the eponymous debut album by former New Kids on the Block member Jordan Knight, released in 1999. Knight co-produced eight of the eleven tracks on the album with help from Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and a then unknown Robin Thicke. The album sold over 500,000 copies in the US alone and reached #29 on the Billboard 200.

Release[edit]

The album was released in 1999 at the height of MTV pop culture. The first single, "Give It to You" received heavy radio airplay and rotation on MTV, as well as BET and VH1. The album was certified Gold months after its release.

In Asia, Knight and boy-band 98 Degrees headlined a tour in support of their albums.
