Jon B is revealing that he felt some type of way when Robin Thicke came on the scene because it meant that he was no longer the only white guy singing R&B.
“From the very beginning I felt threatened because that was sort of my neck of the woods, and I felt kind of like, okay this guy kind of came in and stole some of my wind,” he said. “It really was apparent for me early on and I let it kind of get to me a little bit, and I think I kind of fed into it a bit. That was a challenge and I definitely had to adjust to the whole scene of it not being a new thing to be a white guy in R&B, that there were other guys that were in this thing, too, that were doing this thing. You were going to have to deal with being compared to them and vice versa.”
