Product Description

Amazon.com

While the industry might be holding its collective breath waiting for the release of the next D'Angelo CD (current ETA: mid-March 2003), some of us have gotten on with our lives. Of course the reason we fiend for Mr. D is because he doesn't sound like your run-of-the-mill soul smoothie, and flashes of uniqueness are what keeps R&B fans from slitting their throats in frustration over the current ho-hum state of affairs. Enter singer-songwriter Donell Jones, whose second effort asks the question "What makes a hit?" The answer is his single "U Know What's Up": hooks upon hooks, a catchy melody, and a sexy but low-key vibe, put together in a way that's more than just retro-trendy. The rest of the Where I Wanna Be is classy and idiosyncratic without being too artsy--a perfect buy if you need a break from all the preening and smoke blowing that's all too common. --Amy Linden

This new cd from donnelll is the best to drop from him in a while. This is 3 times better than the first. Every song flows into the next as if they were all one....but they all have a different sound too. It's a good mix of live sounds with studio beats. U might as well press repeat when u play this because some of the beats and harmonies here will have u sining along from start to finish. Left eye is the only guest here and thats enough. Sometimes all u want to hear is the artist whose name is on the cd. No one else. For his sophmore cd, he came strong. No slump here.
After U read this,....I think you might want to get to the nearest store and Get this!..(or just order online).

I have this CD and the one that came out afterwards and I must say this is still my all time favorite. Donnell Jones has a very nice voice there is a nice variety on this CD Ballads, Dance tunes and just plain "chillin" music. A nice CD to just have playing as background music if you have family over, good use of the individual instruments in at least 3 of the songs on the CD. Overall a REALLY great buy.

If you like his style of music I would also suggest Case, Joe and even Jon B.

This CD surprised me alot. I bought it just for "You know what's up" but I got much more than I expected.In a time when you buy CD's and hold your breath to see if you wasted your money, Where I wanna be sets it self apart from the field. No stupid little skits after every track and no swearing while "keeping it real" verbally.

At the 2000 American Music Awards, a certain someone won an award for Best Male R&B Artist...that someone was Donell Jones. After that a lot of people were like, WHO? Donell was very deserving for the award, because Where I Wanna Be is one of the best things I've ever heard.
He was really on top of his game with the first single "U Know What's Up". It's so simple, but so catchy. Then he followed up with the best song on the album, the title track. Here is where he ponders whether or not he wants a relationship. It may not sound like much on paper, but you have to hear the way he says it.
Other gems on the album are the funky "This Luv" (which was also released, but few people knew about it), "It's Alright" and "When I Was Down". "Have You Seen Her" reminds us of those times when we caught a glimpse of an attractive person real fast and never saw them again, and "Pushin'" drives the point home that there's a difference between being loved and being smothered.
It's a little hard to tell where he's going in the skit at the end of "Think About It", but you know where this ALBUM should be going? Straight into your CD player.

First of all Let me say reading some of these reviews.. Every one has the right to their opinion of any releases.. Ex: MisterMaxx.. He does have that right to express his opinion.. no matter the masses agreed with it or not..
Now for this album .. i had it for a while just gettin around to giving my review for it ..All i can say Donell is going to be a force in the music business to come.. Tight production, smooth grooves makes this cd great listening.. He has a voice that is indeed refreshing to hear in music right now instead of copying some one else style ..
Fav.. Cuts
You know What's Up
Shorty ( Got her eyes on me)

Like most people, I think my purchase was solely for the danceable 'You know what's up'.... and excessive airplay wore on me quickly
But I used the SHUFFLE feature on my CD player, and found that each track has a special quality. The lyrics are wonderful.
For the first time in a long time, I could listen to the music, and not feel the need to apologize to my elders, or myself, for the mysogynistics lyrics that are often the price of good music. For the first time in a long time, I could understand what was being said... not just the words, but the emotions.
The vocal quality of Donell Jones is in many ways like the Early 70's version of Stevie Wonder, and the late 60's version of Donny Hathaway. Still, he has his own sound.
I made my purchase of this CD because the single of that track was not available. Now, I'm grateful to have the entire album!

now im not an R&B fan by any stretch of the imagination. But dam donell jones tears it up. this album is sooooo off the hook i love it. "Shorty got her eyes on me" and "Where I wanna be" are so great. this cd would be triple platinum even without the other 11 tracks. Other great tracks include, "This Love", "All her love", "Pushin', I Wanna Love U, and "It's Alright". i can still put this cd in my car and bump it on the road. R Kelly and Case are my other favorite R&B artists and i would love to see these 3 do a track together. hopefully donell continues makin hott songs and hott albums after this one and "Life Goes On''.

Donell Jones is truly one of the most original R&B artists out there. This album proves just that. Songs like Where I Wanna Be and Shorty are so true you swear he was listening in on your love life. However, this CD falls into a slump because the songs all begin to favor one another. There's no change from upbeat to ballad. They all sound like they're somewhere in between. Definitely a good CD for night time listening and contemplating

Find the tracks under My Computer > My Music, etc. Once you do, open each track with Windows Media Player by right clicking on them and clicking "Open With". That's all I got. Usually when I put music into iTunes, it rolls over into Windows Media Player too the next time it opens.
