Can you believe that 23 years ago TODAY, Method Man and Mary J. Blige dropped the now ICONIC , ‘”I’ll Be There for You/You’re All I Need to Get By’ song!? The song is a remix of Method Man’s “All I Need” (which appears on his 1994 debut album Tical), with an interpolation of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s 1968 hit, “You’re All I Need to Get By”, with Mary J. Blige singing the choruses, and backing vocals.
The song peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on June 3, 1995, and #1 on the R&B singles chart in the May 20, 1995 issue of Billboard Magazine – a position it held for three weeks. The song also ended up winning the duo the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group in 1996.
