'Pleasure U Like' comes out in March...

JON B, the up-and-coming R&B star who was discovered by MICHAEL JACKSON producer BABYFACE, has nailed his third album,’PLEASURE U LIKE’.

The album follows up the success of his enduring underground cut ‘They Don’t Know’ from his sophomore CD, 1997’s ‘Cool Relax’.

Unlike Jon’s previous material, rap has a high presence on ‘Pleasure…’, with Nas, his former rhyming partner AZ and the Cuban Links. The R&B quotient is represented by Faith Evans, widow of The Notorious BIG, who has collaborated with Jon on one track.

‘Pleasure…’ will be released in the UK on March 19, and in the US the following day. Look out for Jon’s interview with NMESOUL.COM shortly.
