Released August 4th, 1997, “Everything” was the third single off of singer/songwriter/actress Mary J Blige’s third studio album, Share My World. The album was the first of Blige’s to open at number one on the US Billboard 200 album chart. The song was nominated for Best R&B/Soul Single, Female by the Soul Train Music Awards. Containing samples of “You Are Everything” as performed by The Stylistics; “The Payback” performed by James Brown; “Sukiyaki” as performed by A Taste of Honey, “Everything” paints a picture of one woman’s reflection on a blooming love to which most everyone can relate.
