Jason Mraz became a household name in 2008!
In 2002, Mraz signed to Elektra Records and released his first album entitled Waiting For My Rocket To Come.
The debut had the single The Remedy (I Won’t Worry) on it which peaked at #15 in the Billboard chart.
Jason Mraz next album Mr A-Z was released in 2005 and Mraz promoted it by touring as a support act to Alanis Morrisette, Tracy Chapman and James Blunt the world over.
Produced by Steve Lillywhite Mr A-Z peaked at #5 in the Billboard chart. It contained crowd favorites such as Geek In Pink, Life Is Wonderful and Wordplay.
For the 2008 album We Sing , We Dance, We Steal Things, I’m Yours was finally featured (re-recorded), this song made Jason Mraz a household name.
Spy Tunes had a hit with I’m Yours before Jason Mraz!
In hindsight the rest of the world did agree with Spy Tunes that ‘I’m Yours’ was the song of 2008 but it took almost two years!
We recorded this song all ready in 2007 received over a million plays on YouTube.
Based on the original EP version (Extra Credit ’05) Spy Tunes decided that if Jason Mraz wasn’t gonna release this obvious monster hit then we would!
Jason Mraz release I’m Yours
In may 2008 Mraz finally came to his senses and released it as the first single off his album ‘We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things”.
At first the sales were slow but by late 2009 it was clear, I’m Yours is the best selling song since the Millennium with over 4 million downloads, and has spent the longest time in the Billboard charts, ever.
When it comes to looking at song of the decade, will ‘I’m Yours’ have another stab at the #1 spot?
Spy Tunes will certainly be voting for that!
