Life Goes On is the third studio album by R&B singer Donell Jones. Jones was picking up where he left off in 1999 with 'Where I Wanna Be'. A mix of hip hop inspired dance songs, soulful ballads, and uptempo club-friendly tracks. A fusion of R&B, soul and hip hop, with influences of Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Babyface. The album featured two singles, "You Know that I Love You", which was a minor hit in both the US and the UK and "Put Me Down", a more popular non-album version featuring Styles P. The album reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200. To date, the album has gone gold. On October 29, 2002, Arista Records re-released Life Goes On with the bonus track, "I'll Go", which first appeared on the Love & Basketball soundtrack.
