Real Love - Mary J. Blige

tempo: 95 bpm

The DJ's Take: Song #4 in our chapter 53 mix (6:33):

#2 in a series of 3 tracks in this episode with a hiphop vibe and prominent piano in a similar key (following One More Chance and preceding I Wonder). Had to chop it up a bit to match the beats better, and raised the volume gradually in Logic Pro X:

Pretty sure I put this in an old mix cd from the mid 2000s, which got me my share of work back in the day. Worth a long-term spot in the rotation; it's aged well.

Some other key-compatible music:
