Video: Donell Jones feat. David Banner – Never Let Her Go


Donell Jones has returned once again, with his latest single “Never Let Her Go” featuring David Banner.

Premiering the video on Wednesday (July 13), the R&B crooner is ready to devote himself 100% and never let his lady get away.

Opening in Atlanta’s swanky DS#17 Lounge, Banner kicks off the bouncy single with a vicious verse, while swooning a blond-haired vixen. Donell arrives at the club, rocking his signature black brim hat and shades, along with what looks like a bullet-proof vest.

Singing about turning up with his lady at home, Jones sets a fun, but seductive mood on the track that he describes as “R&B with a twist.”

“Treat her like a queen, and she know she really is / I’ma never let her go / Make her feel like she’ll never get tired of this,” he sings while getting up-close-and-personal with his sexy co-star.

With so many chances of being a one-hit-wonder or trying to keep up with the times going wrong, it’s easy to see how an artist – especially in the R&B genre – can fall off and never be mentioned again. Flashback to one of your favorite tracks from the ’90s – can you say that the artist is still relevant today? Luckily for us, we can.

In 1996, R&B lovers everywhere were forced to ask “Who is this guy?” when R&B singer Donell Jones did more than justice to Stevie Wonder’s “Knocks Me Off My Feet.” Arguably one of the best remakes we would hear, it wasn’t until 1999 that the world really felt the wrath of Donell Jones when he dropped one of the more legendary albums of our generation, ‘Where I Wanna Be.’ The album, which went platinum, featured 13 tracks of pure heaven to your ears.

Now, over a decade and 4 albums later, the veteran R&B crooner has released his latest LP and along with it, dropped his record label too. The album, Forever, hosts the sound that we’ve been missing from the impressive vocalist and proves that he has made his mark on ears forever. recently got the chance to chop it up with the singer to get the details on the new album, being an independent artist and much more.
