28. "Share My World"

On her 1997 album Share My World—her first to debut at No. 1 on BillboardMary shunned her producer/mentor Diddy for established soul maestros like Babyface and R. Kelly. The resulting album skewed away from her hip hop/soul sweet spot in favor of straight-up R&B—and as heard on the Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins–produced title track, the new direction helped Mary refine her vocals to new levels of maturity, tenderness and compassion.
