Mary J. Blige – “Love Is All We Need” (Feat. Nas)
Nas was looking to commercialize his appeal with The Commissioner Steve Stoute via It Was Written, so hooking up with Mary made perfect sense. Flipping the instantly recognizable “Moonchild” by Rick James, “Love Is All We Need” was Mary’s first single from her third album, and it found Nas spitting a gleaming verse about material wealth and being convinced that love is all he needs, or some bullshit like that. Find the Clue tape with Nas’ alternate verse that was surely scrapped due to his (more fitting) dark outlook.
