“I Want You” is one of the tracks in the  Keep the Faith album which is the fifth studio album by American rock band Bon Jovi, released on November 3, 1992, by Mercury Records. It is the last studio album to feature original bass guitarist Alec John Such, before his dismissal from the band in 1994. It is Bon Jovi’s first album since 1985’s 7800° Fahrenheit not to be produced by Bruce Fairbairn. It was also their first album to have a title track. The album was produced by Bob Rock and was recorded at the Little Mountain Sound Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia. Keep the Faith represents the beginning of a new chapter in the history of Bon Jovi, marking a change of both the band’s image and sound. Moving away from their early glam metal roots in previous albums, it introduced a more “rock n roll” driven groove to Bon Jovi’s sound. The album turned away from heavy drums and wild guitar solos but instead introduced a new sound of Bon Jovi which consisted of piano ballads and long epic guitar solos.

Keep The Faith peaked at number five on the US Billboard 200 chart while topping the charts in the UK and Australia. The album was certified double-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album produced several hits for the band, including “Keep the Faith“, “Bed of Roses” and “In These Arms“. The album was ranked No. 21 on Kerrang!’s “100 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die” and in 2006, the album featured in the Classic Rock & Metal Hammer’s “The 200 Greatest Albums of the 90’s”.

Following the completion of the New Jersey tour, the band went on hiatus. During their time off, Jon Bon Jovi wrote the soundtrack for Young Guns II, which was released in 1990 as the Blaze of Glory album and Richie Sambora released his first solo album called Stranger in This TownBy this time, Jon Bon Jovi fired his longtime manager, Doc McGhee and created Bon Jovi Management. Jon Bon Jovi decided to take on a larger role, and more responsibilities within the band. In October 1991 the band went to the Caribbean island of St. Thomas to discuss plans for the future; the band’s internal problems were solved and they were ready to have a go at a comeback.
