Mary J Blige My Life-I Love You (MCA) 1994

This cut is taken from Mary's best-My Life. This was a real soul album and sampled the 70's to death! We had Barry White, Curtis Mayfield, Roy Ayers, Mary Jane Girls...amongst others. The real emotion in the tracks here really didn't go unmissed on me. Apparently this was written after she broke up with that bloke from Jodeci.. I found her later albums to have no soul and poor lyrics to be quite honest, maybe she had no subject matter.. Anyway, the track I have selected here is 'I Love You' and the Isaac Hayes sample really does provide the perfect backdrop with that classic piano loop.
