Congratulations to Mary J. Blige and her label for being cleared of stealing "Family Affair" from Leonard Jones and James White, who claimed the track was similar to their own "Party Ain't Crunk." As you all know, we ride for Mary here at SB, and she counts as one of my personal faves (she's in my Top 3). But is "Family Affair" really a song worth fighting over? When it comes to MJB albums, No More Drama is a stain--no--a scab on her cannon, and "Family Affair" with all that hateration/holleratin' foolishness is the most lyrically regressive single of her career. For an upbeat Mary track that celebrates life's blessings and leaves all the negative behind, "Just Fine" does the trick. Additionally, "Family Affair" simply does not age as well as, say, "Be Happy." Love you, Wilona, but here's hoping you never get "crunk" again.
