A smooth R&B jam, falling somewhere between modern and classic.
Just Jonez recently released “Billie Jean,” a fantastic new R&B single with a velvet-smooth tone and a passionate vocal performance to match the sheer beauty of this production.

On the song, lead vocals are provided by Mete Jones (who sings the first verse), as well as his twin brother, Blue Jones (second verse), and Dahliam (from Los Angeles, California, singing towards the end of the song)…
