About Family Affair

"Family Affair" is a song by American singer Mary J. Blige. It was written by Blige, her brother Bruce Miller, Camara Kambon, Michael Elizondo, and Dr. Dre for her fifth studio album No More Drama (2001), while production was overseen by the latter. "Family Affair" is a song that incorporates elements of hip hop and R&B. The music for the track was originally created in a jam session between Dre and musicians Mel-Man, Camara Kambon, Mike Elizondo and Scott Storch. Later, Blige heard the song that her brother Bruce Miller, Asiah the Continent and Luchi Lodge created the lyrics and melody to and decided on recording her vocals. The single topped the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks starting from November 3, 2001, ending a ten-week lockup of the top two positions on the chart by Alicia Keys' "Fallin'" and Jennifer Lopez's "I'm Real (Murder Remix)", which combined have spent the previous eleven weeks atop the chart. It was Blige's first Hot 100 number-one single, and her first top ten single in nine years. In 2008, for Billboard magazine's 50th Anniversary, "Family Affair" was listed as the 79th-biggest single on the Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Songs. while at the end of 2009 was named the 12th most successful song from 2000 to 2009, on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs of the Decade. Rolling Stone ranked it number ninety-five on their list of 100 Best Songs of the 2000s decade. The accompanying music video was directed by Dave Meyers. In 2007, this song was used on a Propel Fitness Water commercial. On September 6, 2012, Blige performed the song at the final night of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.
