I Wanna Be with You is the second studio album from pop singer Mandy Moore. It was released in May 2000 through Epic Records, six months after her debut album, So Real.
I Wanna Be with You contains five new songs, as well as six songs from So Real, two of which appear in remixed form, “So Real” and “Candy” (the former also appears here in its original album version). The album also includes a remix of the title track and only single I Wanna Be with You. The album version of the song was a moderate commercial success, peaking at number twenty-one on the U.S. Billboard 200 and was certified gold, Moore’s highest peak to date. Epic re-released the single “Walk Me Home” – which had originally appeared on So Real – but it again failed to make an impact on the charts. The album has sold over 805,000 copies in the United States.
I Wanna Be with You was the international version of Moore’s debut album So Real (which was only released in a few countries). This international version includes every new track included on the U.S. release and in some territories features all tracks from So Real rather than only a select few.
