Grammy-winning R&B singer Mary J Blige proves she's still a force to be reckoned with after 15 years in the music business. Reflections - A Retrospective is a collection of her greatest hits, plus four news songs by the 'Queen of Hip Hop Soul'. The album opens with new tracks Reflections (I Remember) and We Ride (I See the Future). Both are reflections on her path from a tortured soul with a negative self-image, to a self-assured woman and musician. Another new track King & Queen, a duet with R&B singer-pianist John Legend, is a romantic, soulful ballad. But Blige's powerful vocals sometimes overwhelm Legend's mellow crooning. The greatest surprise is 911, a duet featuring, and produced by, Fugees founder Wyclef Jean. Their vocals match seamlessly in this passionate R&B ballad. Major hits No More Drama and Family Affair are emotion-filled songs portraying her life-changing moments with inspirational messages. Blige is like Beyonce Knowles' big sister, but her music is wiser and edgier. This is a CD not only for Blige's devoted fans, but for anyone in search of good R&B music, and comfort.
