Macy Gray is an American R&B and soul singer-songwriter, musician, record producer and actress. She is known for her distinctive raspy voice and a singing style heavily influenced by Billie Holiday. Gray has released six studio albums, and received five Grammy Award nominations, winning one. Gray is best known for her international hit single "I Try", taken from her multi-platinum debut album On How Life Is.

Macy Gray is a pretty unknown artist to me aside from her only hit I Try and her 2018 singles, so this will be a nice change to skim her discography. I will use 24 songs (singles/music videos), and won't include the covers from her cover album because I want to keep the number easily splittable (that's not a word I think) into four groups of 6.

Do Something
I Try
Still
Why Didn't You Call Me
Sweet Baby (feat. Erykah Badu)
Sexual Revolution
When I See You
She Ain't Right for You
Oh Yeah (with Keziah Jones)
Love Is Gonna Get You
Finally Made Me Happy (feat. Natalie Cole)
Everybody
Shoo Be Doo
What I Gotta Do
Beauty in the World
Real Love (feat. Bobby Brown)
Kissed It (feat. Velvet Revolver)
Lately
Stoned
Bang Bang
Hands
B.O.B.
White Man
Sugar Daddy
