The 25 Best New Jack Swing Songs

11. Aaron Hall "Don't Be Afraid" (1992)

Album: The Truth/Juice Soundtrack
Label: MCA
Producer: Hank Shocklee


"Don't Be Afraid" had two versions: the original "Jazzed Up" version and the slower "Sex You Down" version. The latter was OK, but Aaron Hall's greatest hit just wasn't the same without that thumping bass line and constant guitar slap. There's nothing to be afraid of when you hear someone sound this good over such a beat.
