Flashback Friday

Flashback Video: Mary J. Blige - Love No Limit
Flashback Date: 1993 (Geffen Records/Universal Music)

Today's Flashback Friday joint comes off Mary J. Blige's What's the 411? album, released in the early 90's, in which the name of the album stems from a previous job Blige held as a Directory Assistance operator...

Do you hear how husky Mary's voice was back then!? It was that soul that made many of us connect with the "Queen of hip-hop soul" from the very beginning. What's The 411 still remains one of my favorite albums of all time, and it takes me back to a special time in my life no matter which track I hear.
