Mary J Blige
Be Without You
It's nice to still see Mary J Blige still in the game considering she's arguably the greatest contemporary singer of our time. 'Be Without You' continues to show her unique, soulful and powerful singing style with the all the pain of a sensitive diva that we've become used to with her. The lyrics are about heartfelt about love and the emotions attached to it. This track shows a sophistication of a women who has survived ordeals and matured and is still trying to uplift and hold on to love. Blige at this point in her career could easily turn cheesy and cater to a pop market. However even though this track doesn't quite have the youthful exuberance of 'What's The 911', it still has the angst and quality of a lady who is still striving and most definitely has her name carved in the music hall of fame.
