Mary J. Blige definitely brings to light many feelings many can relate to. This single will definitely be to your enjoyment and satisfaction. From the listening experience it's quite clear that the themes of love being tough are strong. While the first track shows an "in control" attitude the other one shows another quite tender and loving side. Both songs are from the smashing album titled, "The Breakthrough".
The first song, "Enough Cryin" Radio Edit [3:30] is excellent and the reason for my purchase. It's the strong confident individual who won't put up with games, or a love that's gone wrong. The music has great beats, hooks, claps, bass-lines, and blends of hip-hop, R&B and rap. My favorite part is the rap portions that express the message of how being the naive non-confident lover is not an option. It ends with: "It's time to do something for me!" Overall, you will get mid-tempo beats with some uplifting ones. For those who are not feeling too great from a love that isn't going strong then this may be for you!
The second track, "Be Without You" Live [4:31] simmers down a few notches. It's about not being to live without that special someone. Since the first song has a nice "get lost, get out of my face" attitude, I found this one to bring about a nice diverse feeling. The sounds are very mellow and positive. Her voice sounds rawer and very much different from the first track. This is live from AOL Music Sessions showcasing flawless singing. The soulfulness is strong and fierce!
