Mary's REAL Breakthrough

Just as you thought she couldn't get any better after The Breakthrough, she's really hit it hard with this album. This one's a lot more R&B and soul, and it's good to hear her do amazing up-tempo's like Grown Woman (which HAS to be a single) and Till The Morning. I also LOVE the way the songs are produced to go straight into the next one, so you can't help but listen and appreciate the entire album. I think the only problem with Growing Pains is that it's too long, but if you want your money's worth then you're gonna get it here. The must haves are: 1. Grown Woman 2. Shake Down with USHER 3. Work That 4. Roses 5. Just Fine

One Life!

If you only buy 1 album this year trust me when I advise... buy this one. As an ageing R&B fan, I have foolishly avoided MJB over the past 5 years on the misconception basis that she was a re-incarnation of Tina Turner. Whilst vocal talent and range may not rival say a Whitney, these tunes are all soul / hip hop poetry at it's very best. There are no fillers. I heard this via a friend and was so hooked that I bought the CD at a premium price the next day and downloaded "Reflections" via Itunes the same evening. If you do not feel compelled to move some part of your body to these tunes then you have my deepest sympathy for being clinically deceased. Enjoy!

What an Album !!

Unbelievable….. Mary J once again has pulled the rabbit out of the hat with this...absolutely fantastic...don't hesitate to buy it...believe me..


Born: 11 January 1971 in New York, NY [The Bronx]

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....
