The sound of ’90s R&B seems to be all the rage nowadays. Therefore, it only makes senses that some of our faves from one of the genres golden eras would want to bask a little in all that shine. Welp, ladies, we hope you’re ready to feel like it’s 1997 all over again because Jon B and Donell Jones have teamed up for the unexpected R&B collaboration that you didn’t know you wanted. The duo have released their anticipated single “Understand,” the newest single from Jon that features both crooners doing what they do best. In a brilliant collaboration with sumptuous, sexy and intriguing vibes and lyrical genius, this new track embodies pure genius. Jon B and Donell Jones have in ‘Understand’ created not only a truly magical song, but a song that in it’s entirety is emotion exquisite. Once you press play, you’ll notice that there’s no switch up to the formula here. The production for the track sounds like it dropped off of Jon’s ’97 album Cool Relax, from the light strains of guitar to the synth horn stabs on the chorus. Likewise, the fellas’ vocals seem to have aged like fine wine and sound like almost no time has passed since we first met them way back when. Since their voices are similar in tone, the duet is pretty seamless as their harmonies often meld together as they sing about doing any and everything to make their lady know the extent of their love. If you’re one of those who’ve been waiting for this moment, seize the opportunity by peeping the video for “Understand” below. Jon and Donell also prove to have an almost brotherly chemistry in the song’s accompanying video. We see them performing the track on a couple of soundstages while dressed in their slickest threads as they serenade the viewer. Jon, of course, gets more screen time since this is his single, but Donell gets a surprising amount of solo shine, too. Also getting time on the screen is the clip’s lone female star, who dances and writhes to the slinky rhythm.
Die-hard fans are collectively losing their minds for this dream collaboration come true. So call your radio stations and tell your DJs to starting playing it TODAY!!
The New Track “Understand” is now available on iTunes, Get it now and hear in full volume for yourself what Love truly sounds like.
