Jon B's Wife Danette Jackson Got a Song from Him as a Birthday Gift
Jon B's wife, Danette Jackson, has curated a private life for herself and their children alongside the multiplatinum-selling R&B recording artist.
Danette Jackson was born under Scorpio like her husband Jon B. The mother of two has no public social media presence and rarely features on her celebrated spouse's socials.
While she is not a red-carpet fixture, she has accompanied the singer to some events throughout their relationship. The couple are parents to two children.
Jon B's Wife Received a 'Priceless' Gift on Her 40th Birthday
On his 45th birthday, November 11, 2019, the crooner released his single "Priceless." He corrected an interviewer who called it a birthday present to himself:
"It's really more of a gift to my wife; her b-day [is on] November 17. It's a complimentary song to women in general, to the women holding it down."
Jackson, who turned 40, was not featured in the music video. In the article, the one-time Tupac collaborator commented on the state of R&B, "Women need to be celebrated and not sexualized, and that's where I've always come in. Chivalry isn't dead."
This is not the first time the "Are U Still Down" singer did something adorable for this spouse for her birthday. During a red carpet interview at the 2018 Soul Train Awards, he serenaded her with a happy birthday.
The couple donned polka-dot tops outside their polling station.
Wearing an understated black dress with a grey sleeveless overcoat, Jackson looked on adoringly as he personalized the song, adding, "My dear wife Danette." He directed his singing into a CBS 3 News microphone but made sly glances at her throughout the acapella rendition.

For International Women's Day in March 2019, the performer used a photo of him with his wife in a Bowie sweatshirt at the start of a carousel of women in his life. "What's A King Without His Queen?" he mused.
