Jon B: Are You Still Down? by Dominique Carson

Jon B: Are You Still Down? by Author Dominique Carson is a book about the life of R&B icon – Jon B.

This book’s plot story narrates how Jon B 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 colour 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.

With a total of 56 pages, and divided in two parts – all in all, Are You Still Down? book proof that Jon B has been, and always will be, a groundbreaking R&B star.

Considering that I have never heard about this Jon B, I learned a lot about him, that I was so delighted to read and read more, until I finished all the book. Infact I was so completely hooked with the story and absolutely loved the main character.

The writing is beautiful and the storyline is narrated very well. Author Dominique Carson did a really great job. Looking forward for more of her books.
