I still remember the first time that I heard the song Someone To Love. It was from an unknown vocalist called Jon B., and it also featured Babyface. As I was listening, I said to myself, I thought this was a Jon B song, as quite frankly, it just sounded like Babyface.
I immediately listened to the song several times to figure out the skinny on this issue. I finally started to hear the differences in the two voices, but I was like, MAN! This is a singer!
The fact that he was endorsed by Babyface did not hurt either.
Since then, Jon has released several hits, including Are U Still Down, They Don’t Know, Don’t Talk, Don’t Say, and my favorite, Pretty Girl.
By the way, there’s a great remix for the track Don’t Say. It is the Love Hangover Remix, and it has that classic Diana Ross groove behind it. Check it out below and let me know what you think. I know it’s old, but it is still hot!
I know you still like those infectious grooves, and Jon will be performing spot dates in 2017, so be sure to go see him live if you get the chance.
