Oh I wasn’t taking a Jab at Mary at all. She’s a legend, and one of my favorite R&B artists. I was responding to the user that comes in and argues about MJB all the time. I also know Fantasy ft ODB wasn’t the first song of its kind either, it was just one of the pioneers that helped popularize that sound.banksy wrote:Why not? It's important to know that long before What's the 411? graced our radios and CD players, Kurtis Blow had singers on the chorus for If I Ruled The World. Let us bask in the genius of this song.

Also, it's important to note that Paula Abdul had a rapping cat on "Opposites Attract". Heck, even Michael Jackson got in on the action with Run-DMC, although that song never came out.
All of these were released in the eighties, and served as the basis for what Mary and Mariah and others did in the 90s.
Lastly, it's worth a mention that these two ladies are friends, and Mary has always spoken highly of Mariah, citing her as an influence. She had this to say about Mariah:
"I love Mariah Carey. Mariah Carey's music saved little ghetto children's lives. Songs like "Vision of Love" gave us hope and we would sing those songs and try to hit every note like Mariah -- which we can't. I don't think she knows what a big part she plays in Mary J. Blige's life. And then to meet her….she's such a beautiful person that you can't do anything but defend her when [the media] starts acting stupid on her. She doesn't deserve that."
It didn't do big numbers but if you were a lamb at the turn of the century, Charmbracelet was hard to ignore! It was the album that was going to return her to glory, and then, Well, didn't.eternally12 wrote:LOL my sister used to be a pretty big lamb and had never heard anything from CB except TTR before 2009 when I played the album for her
That whole Era was very important and paved the way for her final and glorious comeback AKA Emancipation (especially the tour).Muzikritik wrote:It didn't do big numbers but if you were a lamb at the turn of the century, Charmbracelet was hard to ignore!

It's her transformation from human form to an actual Goddess
It's the perfect mix of ballads and uptempos. She found the right balance on this one. An underrated masterpiece.delapuerta wrote:Glitter is fresh, funny, emotive and everything you want.
