''...Something to Be'' is the debut solo album from the Matchbox Twenty lead singer Rob Thomas. The album was released in 2005, and it debuted at #1 on the U.S. ''Billboard'' 200 albums chart, knocking out Mariah Carey's ''The Emancipation of Mimi''. This marked the first time that a male artist from a rock or pop group has debuted at number one with his first solo album since ''Billboard'' introduced the chart fifty years ago.

The album spawned the U.S. top ten hit "Lonely No More". It also features John Mayer's guitar on the single "Streetcorner Symphony". The album was released in the DualDisc format, the first major album to be released that way. The album itself is certified Platinum by the RIAA in the U.S. and consists of several types of sounds, including dance, pop, Latin, rock, and country, although it can be generally classified as closer to pop than to the rock music of Matchbox Twenty's third studio album, ''More Than You Think You Are''. - Wikipedia
