Who I Am is the debut album from Nick Jonas and the Administration and Nick Jonas's second album without the Jonas Brothers. It was released on February 2, 2010, in the US. The group made its live debut performing a single of the same name on the Grammy Nominations Concert Live special Dec. 2 on CBS.[2] Jonas cut the album in eight days with producer John Fields, who also played bass.[3] Additional members of the Administration include drummer Michael Bland and keyboardist Tommy Barbarella, both of whom played in The New Power Generation. Guitarist David Ryan Harris played on the album, but a third former NPG member, Sonny Thompson, will replace him for live shows.[2]. "Rose Garden" was the first song written for the album and was partly inspired by a difficult break-up.[4] Jonas wrote/co-wrote all tracks. The album has received average reviews by music critics.[5] It debuted at No. 3 with 82,000 on the Billboard 200.[6] 'Stay" is confirmed to be the second single even though the track is not on the album. It will be made available as a digital single on March 2.[7]
