MUSICAL CAREER

The artist has worked during his musical career with many renowned musicians. For Jon B, music is like therapy, composing is something he constantly does. His beginnings with Baby Face at 18 and his works with Toni Braxton, Michael Jackson, and the Spice Girls, among other artists, demonstrate this.

He has been nominated for a Grammy and Billboard Music and three of his albums have been certified as Platinum and Double Platinum. With this impressive talent, it is not a surprise that he continues to collaborate to bring good music.

With his distinctive R&B sound, the singer has been the ivory-soul singer, and has

worked to stay

in tune with the changes music has undergone for two decades. One of the things he has done is to support the new talents who have sung his songs.
