Mary J Blige and U2- "One"

Click the link to check out the video below. I love the lyrics to this song. Mary J. Blige and U2 together?? There are only a handful of artists that have more star power than that...

Mary J Blige CANNOT sing. I'm still waiting for the world to open their ears. She been tricking yaw'll into buying her records for over a decade now. Dayum she's good

I agree that Mary is not the best singer in the world but it's not about that for me. It's the emotion and truth in her voice--the way she rides the beat and makes you FEEL something about what she's singing. Whitney Houston USED to be one of the baddest chicks out there but she was often criticized for not putting enough soul and feeling into her vocals. Singing and entertainment are not all about having the best voice--it's about how you affect your audience and you can't trick someone into feeling a certain way through song--you either touch them or you don't.

um, some of the greatest & most talented singers are not necessarily the "best", btw- wtf is the "best" singer any way? Hell, Nina Simone wasn't the best but she could make you feel her soul through her music. Billie Holiday wasn't the best either but Billie's blues could fill a room. Aretha damn sure ain't the best but the woman's got some lungs like no other. So does Mary. I wonder how people truly judge talent. The same folks talking about how Mary "can't sing" probably swear up and down that Christina Milian is the best thing since sliced bread. pathetic...

Noone and I mean NOONE was feeling me when I told them this was one of my favorite tracks on The Breakthrough...happy to know I'm not tripping (although I knew I wasn't in the first place).

Anyways, remakes are rarely better if even comparable to their popular originals, but because of Mary this song transcends - her voice is amazing.

this song was...ok...nothing spectacular about it. yeah u2 rocks and mary is a good singer, but it was missing something. i just cant put my finger on it. there was potential in a duet like this...but it did nothing for me to make me wanna press "replay". *shrugs*
