His sophomore album achieved Double Platinum status, while his third - his most successful to date - Pleasures U Like, achieved Gold, charting at 6 and 3 on the U.S. 200 and U.S. R&B respectively. Jon B. has since released Stronger Everyday, Holiday Wishes: From Me to You, Helpless Romantic, and Comfortable Swagg..
