Jesse Powell's "You" Soars In the Top 10 on Two Billboard Charts Since His Untimely Passing

On September 13th via Instagram, it was announced by R&B singer-songwriter Jesse Powell's sister Tamara Powell of his untimely passing which sent a shockwave through the music industry and to his longtime fans, listeners and followers.

Since the news of his passing, his hit song "You" has soared in the top 10 on two Billboard charts including the R&B Digital Song Sales chart at No. 5 and the R&B/Hip-Hop Song Sales chart at No. 8 for the first time in the digital era.

Originally recorded in 1996 for Powell's eponymous self-titled debut album via MCA Records, "You" wasn't released as a single until it was added to his subsequent 1998 sophomore album 'Bout It where it became the biggest hit of his career, peaking at No. 2 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and No. 10 on the Hot 100's circa 1999.

Powell also released two follow-up albums: JP (2001) and Jesse (2003).
