Today I have to give a double dose of Real Love from artists Jody Watley and Mary J. Blige. Both displayed their female empowerment and gave the ladies fashion inspiration to rock the large hoop earrings and that it was cool to wear a baseball cap and over-sized baseball jersey.
From Soul Train dancer to member of Shalamar, Jody Watley’s star continued to shine as a solo artist in the late 80s. One of her biggest hits was Real Love:
Mary J. Blige’s Real Love was her second single off her 1992 debut album What’s the 411?
*In 1979 President Jimmy Carter decreed that June would be Black Music Month. Three decades later in 2009 President Barack Obama revamped the title and declared June African-American Music Appreciation Month. Each day this month I am turning up the volume on an artist or song brought to you by the letter R. Enjoy!*
