Jon B - Lately Lyrics




[VERSE 1:]
Pretty young thing
Sexy young girl I've been thinking bout
How we use to share one world but that's over now
Life without you just ain't life and it's killing me
Cause you just walked from our past and our beautiful dream

[B-SEC:]
I want y ou back cause I'm in need (I'm in need)
And I need to know have you thought about me

[CHORUS:]
Lately
All the trouble we use to get in my baby
Lately
In the back seat of my Benz now baby
Lately
We'll let the top drop you'll get on top baby
Lately
Have you thought about me, thought about me

[VERSE 2:]
Girl I was wrong so dead wrong with those things I did
How could I lie how could I cheat how'd you put up with it
GUess i got love but it aint love now you're so far away
You put it on me this player's so lonely there's go tto be a way

[B-SEC]

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE:]
What keeps me missing all that good love
My psyche won't let me forget all the good love we made
Though we're worlds apart I'm still buggin' on it lately

  24. 33ladyRAM

    I've been going through all his songs and videos...love me some Jon B

  25. Thomas Sutton

    If time machines were real, I'd travel back to the late 90s when R&B was still relevant and unique. Today's R&B is cookie-cutter at best.

    babyshaun82

    Make some room in that time travel machine 4 me, too...I'm so there!😉😏😎🎤🎶

  26. A_Man_Walking-His-Own_Path

  51. Timmy Greystone

    Beyonce's Dad was too busy knocking up young girls and not managing J.B. 

    This guy should have a few grammy's by now. 

    Chris Heltzer513

    Timmy Greystone real talk and im surprised Beyonce aint tried to date jon b before Jay z if not marry him but u know how it goes

    Caliph Jones

  62. Andrew Flood

    I LOVE THIS SONG !!!!!!!

  63. Deshawn Washington

    Job B. Is a legend in his own right. He has mastered a Genre, that many have left behind. Why/! I do not know.. But I know this. He makes brothas wanna stand and be counted. That our actions predicate how we are treated by the opposite sex. In order to get that woman, She's lookin for an even stronger Man. Glad he and others like him can speak for us...

  64. Richard Hill

    This is how music should sound, love this and stuff like blackstreet, dru hill etc. shame they dont do rnb like it anymore

  65. BellaMoreno

    I WISH HE HAD THE SAME BACKING AS ROBIN THICKE. THAT WOULD BE SWEEETTTT!

  66. vitolob1

    I remember MTV Base used to play it everyday back in 2005. Great Song!

  67. Perverted Alchemist

    I will always have a hatred for Mathew Knowles for how he handled Jon B's album "Stronger Everyday". This song had "hit" written all over it and he did nothing.

    Lonnie Timmons

    Jon- B they don't know that they "MISSING YOU" Bro. keep getting busy...💿

  68. Abraham Jackson

    Radio slept on this one !!

  69. Rochell Thompson

    I am loving the song and Tank in the background vocals!!! Love Jon B

    Caliph Jones

    Rochell Thompson Tank is that dude... hands down, vocals, keys, strings, songwriting... yeah!

  70. Aisha Williams

    smooth and hard decent melody makes me wanna borrow my mamma franky limon 45 no gun intended just feeling this-ba/ baaaaay yup thats it-nidduhalas of brswk

  71. azucarmorena5000

    extremely underrated. no reason trey songz should have Jon B's spot. Jon B is the real king of r&b

    Caliph Jones

    azucarmorena5000 Smoking CRACK! TREY CAN SING LIVE & IS A SONGWRITER AS WELL BABYFACE CARRIED JON B HIS CAREER...

    babyshaun82

    Whateva😒

  72. MrFlux001

    It's about time Jon B got his serious break. I want to hear this on the radio and not yet another David Guetta feat [insert name of anyone popular right now] track.

  73. msangela2525

    This was a good underrated cd right here. Love this jam.

  74. La Wanda Kirk

    This is the jam! Jon B is so under rated talented as Hell!

  75. Aisha Williams

    THE UNDER RATED BLUES EMCEE EVERYBODY JON .B

  76. ebony mccall

    i supported him since he came out he doesnt have the right people behind him its unfair he is very talented and still hanging in there as i will too

  77. Brandon Sorrells

    You sure it Tank not Mike from from 112?

  78. ATMX17

    This is easily a top ten hit. If only he would get a major label to back him properly. He has'nt been done right since the Cool Relax album and that went platinum.

  79. ATMX17

    @catch22yo LMAO yeah, there should be a couch in every Jon B. Video lol.

  80. black coffee

    Im mad because this song didnt get much radio play I love u jon b your the best and I think that was tank singing in the background

  81. djgups

    This is Jon B. at his best!!

  82. KingSkulkZ

    Thumbs up if you are listening to this on a rock in 10,000 bc

  83. MRSTINSUL

    @loh1110 this is a Tune! jb really knows how to get on down, a real funky white guy,

  84. Toni B

    R&B genius!!!

    Caliph Jones

    Toni B He didn't produce any of his songs... lol

    babyshaun82

    Who didn't produce what?😒😐😕

  85. 50ztej

    thee views are pathetic, this is one of my favourite songs ever from one of my favourite albums ever, you got tank in the back on the hook, wtf is wrong with people, this should have millions of views

  86. Jedah Dohma

    Life with out u jus anit life and its killin me cuz we jus walked away and turned our backs of that beautiful dream!!!

  87. SayberV1

    @honeegrrl didnt wanna have the buzz around Beyonce distracted?...

  88. Tony Sway

    This was and still is that jam!

  89. Vash Tea

    ugh that name Mathew Knowles gets under my skin..I know Kelly could've have been much more successful in the past but now she's finally getting on top where she belings, oh yeah & Jon B is still the shit to me forever & and always. #MyWhiteBoy

  90. jaysha90210

    oooowwweee Jon B, please believe me!

  91. AYthaCREATOR

    Damn didn't know this had a video to it.....I have all of this dudes album and the less exposure he gets the better his albums become. He is a true artist and shows what real musicians can accomplish with total artistic freedom with their craft

  92. Tolulope Lewis

    Before the electronic/autotune/david guetta &will i am invasion(very annoying & disturbing).At least mainstream r&b still sounded good at this point,I just dont get it anymore.Maybe i'll just continue to be one of the grumpiest people when it comes to contemporary hip hop & r&b music,cant seem to help myself.

  93. B. Smith

    JON B'S NEW ALBUM "COMFORTABLE SWAGG COMING VALENTINES DAY 2012!!! THAT IS NOW THE OFFICIAL DATE FROM JON HIMSELF. THE VIDEO FOR THE SINGLE "COMFORTABLE SWAGG" WILL BE OUT NEXT MONTH, SO LOOK OUT FOR THAT. CHECK OUT HIS SINGLES "AFTER THE PARTY" AND "BODY LANGUAGE" ON ITUNES. AND IF YOU HAVE A TWITTER, PLEASE FOLLOW JON @VIBEZELECT AND HIS TEAM @TEAMJONB...PLEASE SUPPORT THIS MAN...REAL MUSIC!

  94. Quinten Cornelius

    @blackaman30 I knew that was Tank in the background! Lol I thought I was hearing things

  95. Alex

    the original JB move over Justin Bieber u don't come anywhere near close
