Music Review: Real Love - Mary J. Blige

Speed: 95 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

Mix this one with: One More Chance (Remix) - Notorious BIG ft. Faith Evans, No Games - Serani

The DJ’s Take: They call her the queen of hiphop & R&B, and this was the first major track that showed us why she deserves the title. Upbeat piano riff + the drums used in Audio Two’s classic Top Billin = Early 90s Anthem. If you’re a DJ, you have to pick your crowd for this one, but you should be alright if you mix it in with my recommended tracks (see above).

There’s also a remix sampling Betty Wright and featuring Notorious BIG, which I’d argue is even hotter than the original. Definitely worth a download.
