"One" Mary J. Blige featuring U2
This song reminds me of the first time that I heard Mary J. Blige. It was her cover of the Rose Royce song "I'm Going Down" in 1995, and I haven't liked a Mary J. Blige song since then. Most of her songs are too repetitive; she gets two good lines and repeats them for three minutes. This video is a reminder of what she can do when she is given a real song to sing.
