Song Of The Day: Mary J. Blige – Family Affair

Posted by ImaJustSaying on March 31, 2011

No Holleration!!!


Family Affair” is a 2001 hit song for Mary J. Blige, produced by Dr. Dre. It was taken from her fifth album, No More Drama, and was responsible for popularizing the terms “hateration” and “dancery” in the US, as well as contributing to the popularity of the word “crunk”.

The music for “Family Affair” was originally created in a jam session between Dr. Dre and musicians Mel-Man, Camara Kambon and Mike Elizondo. Later, Blige heard the song and she and her brother Bruce Miller contributed the lyrics and melody. Finally, Dr. Dre produced Blige’s vocals, but this was done at a distance because at the time he was busy filming the movie Training Day.

The single topped the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks from November 3, 2001. It was Blige’s first Hot 100 number-one, although she had previously reached number two with “Not Gon’ Cry” in 1996.
