Donell Jones's 4th album, Journey of a Gemini, was released on June 20th, 2006 , by LaFace/Jive. His first single, "Better Start Talking", features famed producer/rapper Jermaine Dupri, which didn't fare well at radio (leading to the album's delayed release from an original December 2005 date). Meanwhile, the set's second single, "I'm Gonna Be" is produced by the production team of Tim & Bob. It did fairly well on the R&B charts, espically at Urban AC Chart. Currently, he's writing and producing for upcoming projects for singers like Usher, Mya, Trey Songz & Mariah Carey.
