Stay the Same is Joey McIntyre's first solo album, released on March 16, 1999, by Work Records and C2 Records. It includes his first single, the title track, "Stay the Same".

Release and reception[edit]

The album was released during the late 1990s' teen pop revival, which was mostly dominated by artists like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync. The album was able to gain substantial success due to the placement of the single "Stay the Same", which peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Fellow New Kids On The Block bandmate Jordan Knight released an album in the same year, with his single "Give It to You" peaking at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 as well. The album peaked at #49 on the Billboard 200 and was certified Gold by the RIAA.

The second single released, "I Love You Came Too Late", peaked at #53 on the Billboard Hot 100.


McIntyre toured with the pop artist Britney Spears in the Disneyland Tour series to promote their albums.
