"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" becoming an easy eighties soft rock favorite.

After recording the successful dance single, the group returned to their more comfortable standard of ballads. Relying on an outside producer and songwriters, this song was recorded and released as the second single off their fourth album, Rhythm of the Night.

The song eventually spent four weeks at #2 on the U.S. R&B chart and #6 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. It also became their third song to top the U.S. adult contemporary chart, which helped their Rhythm of the Night album reached gold status.
