14 Songs, 56 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

While Mary J Blige has appeared on many soundtracks—including Who's the Man?, Waiting to Exhale, Belly, and Precious—this marks the first time she's done every single song on one. Released with surprisingly little publicity, Think Like a Man Too features 14 all-new songs, with only two guests: Pharrell on the synth-horn-heavy "See That Boy Again" and The-Dream for the namechecking dancefloor anthem "Vegas Nights." Things start on a high note with a spirited remake of Shalamar's "Night to Remember," and the rest of the album retains that upbeat/throwback vibe. There are a few ballads in the mix ("Propose" and "Self Love"), but it's mostly feel-good party jams, well produced by the likes of Tricky Stewart and Rodney Jerkins, among others. If you're a fan of the movie or a fan of Mary, this album is a must.

Best Album Since 2007's "Growing Pains"

Mary J. Blige proved why she's been crowned the "Queen of R&B." While her last two albums had their "moments," they weren't fire. However, with this soundtrack, Mary reached deep with her lyrical content and ventured out with new producers and brought fresh content. She gave us music to dance to like "Moment of Love." She gave us songs to tell our men to hit the curve such as "All Fun and Games." She provided music to make dedicate to our partner including "Wonderful" and music to make us think like "Better." It's worth the buy. It tops anything she's done in a while -- besides her stellar "A Mary Christmas" album. One can only hope she promotes this soundtrack like a regular album. It deserves that treatment.

Mary J. Blige Adds Another Full Length Classic Soul Album To Her Catalogue & Resume.

Mary J. Blige has completely outdone herself this time around with the official soundtrack to Steve Harvey's, Think Like A Man Too. Carrying the complete soundtrack on her own, Mary J. Blige brings back real r&b soul music that's missing in the existing sounds of music from today's generation. Without completely, going disco/dance music on this set, Mary continues to update her signature truthful sound that her fans have grown to love throughout her 22 (as solo artist) to 25 (as featured artist/ and as signed to contract with Uptown/ MCA Records in 1989) years as a recording artist. While many of today's movies and sequels don't produce complete uplifting soundtracks, Mary J. Blige with the assistance of Epic Records executive L.A. Reid bring listeners back to the days, when motion picture soundtracks once did. And, the closest urban music soundtrack, to do so, in recent years is Bad Boys II - Soundtrack produced by Bad Boy Records founder and executive producer Sean Combs (the driving force behind Mary's classic first and second albums), which featured Mary J Blige on, "Didn't Mean." Along with Mary's, previous efforts this movie soundtrack will be a milestone in Mary J. Blige's career, that will live on for ages like past great r&b soul soundtracks like, Waiting To Exhale, Soul Food, Boomerang, Love Jones, Shaft, Superfly, Black Caesar, Car Wash, Sparkle, New Jack City, Mahogany, The Wood, Above The Rim, The Bodyguard, The Best Man, Space Jam, Love & Basketball, The Five Heartbeats, Krush Groove, Beat Street, Purple Rain, The Wiz, The Big Chill, Claudine, The Harder They Come, Lady Sings The Blues, Poetic Justice, Saturday Night Fever & Shaft, among many. The above mentioned soundtracks is what MJB is running against for a classic r&b soundtrack album. And, with the soundtrack to Think Like A Man Too, she wins with it. So, order your copy and press play. - @TerrenceHanton
