It's a pretty good MJB list. BET got something right for a change lol.

I wish Love No Limit was a lot higher and Not Gon Cry was a lot lower.

So, do you guys think it was considered in or out of scope for the list.

I don't agree with the critics' view that her first two albums would be her best. On "Mary" (1999) she has matured as a singer, and it incorporates more influence of old-school soul. To me "Time" and "Deep Inside" are her best songs. Missing is the Stevie Wonder cover "As", recorded as a duet with George Michael. That was the first song I heard from her and it aroused my interest in her albums.
They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

Out of scope - unlike the Complex lists, I believe they were only counting songs that she was the main performer on.
