Mary J Blige Real Love

With the release of Mary J. Blige’s album “Good Morning Gorgeous”, it’s a good time to look back at her iconic catalog. Putting together a list of the best songs by legendary singer Mary J. Blige is no easy task. The iconic Queen of Hip-Hop Soul has given us so much good music over the past three decades that simply picking her best songs in nearly impossible.

The list you will find below represents an eclectic mix of songs from throughout Blige’s career. It would have been very simple to select all of the songs from her first few classic albums, but that wouldn’t be fair.

What we are reminded of when revisiting the discography of Mary J. Blige is how many times she’s been able to reinvent her sound while still creating great music that is true to her soul. The fact that you will find many of the songs she released from earlier in her career in our Top 10 is not an indication that she hasn’t released great music in recent years, but more so how timeless those earlier songs really were.
