Drops of Jupiter is the second studio album by American pop rock band Train, released March 27, 2001. The album’s title is derived from “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)”, its lead single, which was a hit internationally and won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Song.

The album contains elements of rock, country and indie rock. Besides “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)”, two other singles were released from this album: “She’s on Fire” and “Something More,” both of which also achieved some success on the Adult Top 40 chart.

Debuting at #6 in the United States upon its release, it has since been certified 3× Platinum by the RIAA in the United States and 2× Platinum by the CRIA in Canada. It is the band’s best-selling album to date.
