To be honest, I didn’t know who Jon B was. However, I knew how much of an influence this artist was on the author. After taking some time to research and read this book, I learned so much about him. Jon B was and still is a phenomenal musician. Hopefully Jon comes was across this well written piece about him. I plan on listening to some of his songs and enjoy good R&B music. I recommend this to the next reader if you’re reading this. I am glad I took the time to carefully read the book and learn about Jon. Now I can see why Dom is a fan of his work.
Jon B is an R&B icon. He rose to fame against the odds in the late 90s, and his version of blue-
eyed soul has captivated fans and rhythm and blues lovers for over a quarter century.
Jon started out as a young boy from a musical family with a dream of making it big. From there, he worked with his idol and subsequent mentor, Babyface, who helped him prove the haters wrong, and top the charts.
Ultimately, Jon had to deal with backlash about his skin color and credibility in the R&B hip hop world alone, but he did it, and came out stronger, and more respected, on the other side. Jon made history with Tupac, carved his own path, and even released music independently before the rest of the industry hopped on the trend.
The fame and demise of his first marriage almost broke him, but ultimately, set him up for his greatest comeback, and a life of love with Danette. “Are You Still Down?” lays bare the proof that Jon B has been, and always will be, a groundbreaking, bonafide R&B star.
