Our Review

After No More Drama (and its Dr. Dre-produced smash single, “Family Affair”) reestablished Mary J. Blige as a hit-making force and elder spokeswoman for contemporary R&B, Love & Life felt like a valedictory run. After proving the depth of her talent to the public, she wanted to remind everyone that she still held the crown as “The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul.” In many ways, Love & Life reprises aspects of Blige’s early career. It reunites her with the producers of her first two albums (Sean Combs and the Hitmen), as well as some of her most famous collaborators (Jay-Z, Method Man). Even sonically the album echoes the past, as “Don’t Go,” and “Ooh!” reprise the slamming drums and sassy attitude of What’s the 411?. Blige spent 10 years developing the two separate sides of her personality, and on Love & Life they finally come together. “When We” and “It’s a Wrap” merge the tough-chick charisma of her early years with her newfound grown-up wisdom and her patented raw emotion.


Customer Reviews

a great R&B album, but... (3 stars)
Mary J. Blige is one of the most special people in the music industry, right now. It seems that these days, the Billboard charts are overwhelmed with fluff R&B that goes down easy, and rap music that promotes selfishness and a refusal to take accountability for one's mistakes. Thus, through popular culture, our country is being turned into a mindless mush of artistic depravation. Mary came out during a period where young people (the t

Solid Album (4 stars)
This Mary J. Blige album she did exactly what she said she would do--- reach out to the fans that were there since day 1. And that she did, pairing up with Diddy, the one with whom she created the Hip-Hop Soul genre. Positives: gritty production, samples and hip hop beats...vocals were gritty, soulful Mary and had the emotion that we've all grown to love with Mary. "it's a wrap", "don't go", "when we" and "

Mary's Most Underrated Album (4 stars)
I think this was her most underrated album she released. Even tho she hooked up Diddy again. She had some nice tracks on here and I liked it.


Born: January 11, 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....
