Album Review

The hype that surrounded Mary J. Blige in the beginning was simply ridiculous. When What's the 411? was released in 1992, she was exalted as "the new Chaka Khan"— a definite exaggeration, considering how uneven that debut album was. But Blige did show promise, and by the time she recorded her third album, Share My World, she had developed into a fairly convincing soul/urban singer. Her strongest and most confident effort up to that point, Share had much more character, personality, and honesty than most of the assembly line fare dominating urban radio in 1997. For all their slickness, emotive cuts like "Get to Know You Better," "Love Is All We Need," and "Keep Your Head" left no doubt that Blige was indeed a singer of depth and substance. Although high tech, the production of everyone from R. Kelly (with whom she duets on the inviting "It's On") and Babyface to Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis doesn't come across as forced or robotic, but, in fact, is impressively organic. With Share My World, Blige definitely arrived.

A soulful offering from the ever progressing Mary J. Blige. Winning critical acclaim as she goes and awards this album began to develop her status of the Queen of Hip Hop Soul. This album features R. Kelly and the Queen Bee Lil' Kim. Some more well known tracks from this album - Missing You, Everything & Natural Woman.

my fav album by mary the album has that unmistakeable mid 90s swing and sass vibe going on love is all we need and i can love you are perfect slices of pure rnb before the scene headed in the commercial direction however it is the slow jams that truely sparkle missing you seven days its on and not gon cry(surely a bona fide classic soul jam by now ) mary's voice really takes off from here potraying serious anguish hurt passion and desire which was futher highlighted by her seriously soulful follow up MARY and launched the legend that ismary j.

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

When her debut album, What's the 411?, hit the street in 1992, critics and fans alike were floored by its powerful combination of modern R&B with an edgy rap sound that glanced off of the pain and grit of Mary J. Blige's Yonkers, New York childhood. Called alternately the new Chaka Khan or new Aretha Franklin, Blige had little in common stylistically with either of those artists, but like them, she helped adorn soul music with new textures and flavors that inspired a whole generation of musicians....
