My Life (1993)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Mary J. Blige; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

The latest offering from hip-hop's reigning diva, Mary J. Blige, is more serious than her crossover 1992 debut. She's still preoccupied with affairs of the heart (''I Love You'') but is also on a quest for happiness (''My Life''). And while she continues soaring to soulful heights over streetwise beats, her raspy delivery has lost some of its edge on My Life. B
