21. "I Don't Want to Do Anything"

Looking back at this powerhouse duet with K-Ci of Jodeci—whom Mary dated in a tumultuous, reportedly abusive relationship—it's tempting to see how the all-or-nothing, pour-your-heart-out love sung about here set her up for the eventual heartbreak that's the focus of My Life. But ignore the stormy backdrop and you still have two of the finest, most forceful vocalists in R&B history giving it their all.
