Then and Now: Jon B.

Remember JON B., the man of all our interracial fantasies?

His commercially successful single, “They Don’t Know,” sold over a million copies and made him a go from R&B affiliated to R&B certified. Born Johnathan Buck in Rhode Island, the R&B singer was raised in Pasedena, CA  where he started singing at age four.

After shipping demos around in 1992, JON B. caught the attention of TRACEY EDMONDS and was contracted as a songwriter for her current ex-husband, KENNETH “BABYFACE” EDMONDS.

After gaining writing credits for  COLOR ME BADD,  TONI BRAXTON, MICHAEL JACKSON, and others, JON B returned back in the studio in 2010 to release on his seventh album to date, Comfortable Swagg, dropping the single “Body Language,” late last year.

After time off from a divorce and other personal issues, JON B is re-married and has a daughter. Although Jon B says he now makes music for his family, Comfortable Swagg will celebrate his journey as a family man, and finally release Nov 2011.
