P. Diddy pulled out some of the top producers in the business to work on B5's self-titled debut album, B5. Among the producers were Rodney Jerkins, Ryan Leslie, Sean Garrett, Corna Boyz, Veit Renn and P. Diddy himself. The lead single, "All I Do", originally recorded by The Jackson 5 and covered by Troop, was the suggested song to them by Jerkins and they recorded it without hearing either of the other two versions. Patrick acknowledges that their version is more reminiscent of the Troop cover than the original. B5 had their self-titled debut CD and was a top 20 hit on the Billboard 200 and reached number seven on the Top R&B/Hip Hop Chart. Their images dignified fanzine covers month after month. They created a craze wherever they went or visited. In 2005 they nearly caused for mall to shut down, a Minneapolis mall when approximately 2000 fans rushed towards the stage during a free concert that took place there. B5's 2005 self-titled debut CD made an impressive debut at #19 in its first week of release on the Billboard 200 and also entered at #11 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The debut gave the hit singles "All I Do" and "U Got Me," which peaked at Radio Disney at #9 and hung on the BET "106 & Park" Top 10 for weeks.
