London Jones

London Jones (born in New York) was a male R&B singer from the '90s. Not much information is given about him, but he was signed to Silas Records.

In 1994, he released his debut album, "For You." It's unknown how or if the album ever made the charts.
 
His first single, "Joi" peaked at #70 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 9 weeks.
The follow-up single "Save Our Love" was released in 1995, but didn't chart. London has written and produced music for artists such as the Braxtons, Jessica Simpson, Tamar, Rebekah, the Dre Allen Project, Kina, Tiffany, Ronnie Spector, and JC Chasez.

These days, London Jones continues to be active in the music business under the name Xavier Ross.

My wife saw him perform in front of 12 people in London. He did not get the recognition he probably deserved as there were some good tracks on the album including a Dallas Austin track. I wonder what London is up to now?

I discovered London Jones. I got him his record contract and produced his album with Silas Records. As with many artists, bad habits got the best of him. I think you may find him in a Burger King or the likes back in Az. which is where he is from.

I think he's best known for singing "Lust 4 U" on the House Party 2 soundtrack.

London Jones is one of the best r&b singers of all time, sadly he does not get recognised for his great talent. His cd is one of he best I have in my collection. I'm a lover of old school music and London fits in with the best of them

That track "Lust 4 U" is still one of those low key smooth cuts that still to this day will push ya pass 3rd base if the timing is right!
