I couldn't find a thread. The first single from her second album My Life. It samples Curtis Mayfield's "You're So Good To Me" and Marvin Gaye's "I Want You". Peaked at #6 on R&B/Hip Hop and #29 on the Hot 100.
This is still one of my favorites. The video always brings back memories of late '94/early '95. After listening to the entire album last week, I think it's the perfect song to close the album.
One of my favorites from Mary too. I love those 90s R&B/rap songs that sampled obscure or moderate R&B hits from the past (rather than the ones that sampled monster smashes-- hi Bad Boy; referring to the Curtis Mayfield sample, of course) and really turned them into smashes. While you can't deny Curtis Mayfield's incredible artistry, Mary really improved upon his song.

One of Mary J Blige's best songs and the best single from her 1994 album. I heard this song alot on WGCI when I was younger and it was also played on V103 and defunct 106 Jams in my market. I don't ever get tired of it
