Who's Holding Donna Now - A Classic R&B Ballad by DeBarge

"Who's Holding Donna Now" is a song by the American R&B group DeBarge, released in 1985 as the second single from their fourth album, Rhythm of the Night. The song was written by David Foster, Jay Graydon and Randy Goodrum, and produced by Graydon. It was a hit on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number six, and also reached number two on the R&B chart and number one on the Adult Contemporary chart. The song showcases the group's signature vocal harmonies and El DeBarge's falsetto lead.

The song tells the story of a man who is heartbroken over his former lover, Donna, who has left him for someone else. He wonders who is holding her now, and if she still thinks of him. He expresses his regret for letting her go, and his hope that she will come back to him someday. The song has a smooth and romantic sound, with keyboards, synthesizers and guitar creating a soft backdrop for the vocals.

"Who's Holding Donna Now" was one of DeBarge's most successful songs, and helped establish them as one of the leading R&B groups of the 1980s. The song also received positive reviews from critics, who praised its melody, production and emotion. The song appeared in a late 1985 episode of the daytime soap opera All My Children[^2^].

DeBarge was a musical group composed of several members of the DeBarge family, who were known for their soulful voices and catchy songs. The group was active from 1979 to 1989, and released six albums under the Motown label. The group originally consisted of El, Mark, Randy and Bunny. James joined the group a year later for their second album. Bobby and Chico joined in 1987 and 1988 respectively, but did not appear on any albums with the group.

The group's first two albums, The DeBarges and All This Love, were moderately successful, but their third album, In a Special Way, was a breakthrough. It featured the hit singles "Time Will Reveal", "Love Me in a Special Way" and "Stay with Me". The album was praised for its sophisticated production, elegant arrangements and smooth vocals. The group's fourth album, Rhythm of the Night, was their most commercially successful, spawning four Top 40 hits, including "Who's Holding Donna Now" and the title track, which was also featured in the movie The Last Dragon.

However, the group's success was overshadowed by personal problems, such as drug addiction, legal troubles and family conflicts. The group disbanded in 1989, after releasing their sixth album, Bad Boys. Some of the members pursued solo careers, with varying degrees of success. El DeBarge had the most successful solo career, scoring several hits in the late 1980s and early 1990s, such as "Who's Johnny" and "All This Love". He also collaborated with other artists, such as Quincy Jones, Dionne Warwick and Babyface. However, he also struggled with drug addiction and spent time in prison. ec8f644aee
