Here is another classic song that more than likely had an impact on Mary J. Blige when she was a young child. It was released in 1975 by Rufus featuring Chaka Khan and climbed all the way to the #1 position on Billboards R&B chart and remained there for two consecutive weeks; and was certified gold!]\

In 1993, Mary J. Blige released her version of the song to a brand new generation of music lovers and it was a very successful single, so much so, that it was her rebound single that year.
