Think Like a Man Too (Music from and Inspired by the Film)
Released: Jun 2014
Mary J. Blige's full-length soundtrack for Think Like a Man Too kicks off with a pro forma cover of Shalamar's "A Night to Remember" and winds through tracks with great arrangements and a decent performance by Blige. The album is weighed down by poorly written lyrics, weak choruses and at least one tortured metaphor in "Cargo." But at least she's having fun again after too many years of mushy adult contemporary ballads. The highlights include "Moment of Love," Pharrell in full MJ mode on "See That Boy Again," and a hooky sample of A Tribe Called Quest's "Push It Along" on "Wonderful."
