Book Review: Jon B: Are You Still Down?

The blue-eyed soul artist gets a respectful tribute in this brief treatise by Dominique Carson, who makes the case for Jon B as an R&B icon who, under the watchful eye of Babyface, rose to fame in the late ’90s. Carson traces the singer’s key career steps, particularly how he overcame the backlash about his skin color and earned credibility in the R&B and hip-hop world. The book also deals with challenges the artist overcame in his personal life to remain a groundbreaking, bonafide R&B star. Carson states the case that “soul originates from the soul and is all about attitude.”
