Music Review: The One - Mary J. Blige ft. Drake

Speed: 104 bpm

The DJ’s Take: So much for Jay-Z’s prediction about the Death of Autotune - even his girl Mary pours it on like syrup on pancakes. Cold, driving beat and a guest spot from Drake make it worth a listen for pop fans. As a music fan, I’ve always preferred MJB from the 90s, when she could make you feel her vocals. But as a dj, this track is custom fitted for mixes. Distinct instrumental at the beginning and end make blending in The One as easy as 1-2-3.
