‘Who’s Holding Donna Now’ by Debarge – Classic Hit or Miss
“Who’s Holding Donna Now” is a 1985 hit single recorded by DeBarge for the Gordy label. It was their second consecutive top ten U.S. hit after the release of “Rhythm of the Night”. After recording the successful dance single, the group returned to their more comfortable standard of ballads.
Relying on an outside producer, outside songwriters, and background vocalists, Richard Page and Steve George, this song was recorded and released as the second single from their fourth album, Rhythm of the Night. The song reached number six on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, spent four weeks at number two on the R&B chart, and became their third song to top the U.S. adult contemporary chart.
