Mary J. Blige feat. Common
Released: 28th January 2002.
Mary J finally follows up the huge international hit "Family Affair" with the chilled sound of "Dance For Me". Featuring rapper Common, this tune is likely to please her legions of fans anticipating her forthcoming UK tour. However, don't expect the success of "Family Affair"; whilst that had an addictive, hard beat that went down a storm in the clubs, this tune will only go so far as heads bobbing and feet tapping. All in all though another quality release.
The second single from the album "No More Drama", this is true Mary J style, and I love it! The only part of this song I can fault is the rapping which unfortunately spoils it. Still, the video is great, and the vocals are, as usual, of a high standard. I think the song will chart higher than "Family Affair" and will hopefully see the album finally enter the Top 40. I will definitely be buying this tune!
