All I Need

Mary J.'s influence on a generation is undeniable, but before she became the official Queen of Hip Hop Soul with her duet with Method Man for his "I'll Be There for You/You're All I Need," it was Franklin who was spitting so much on game on her 1971 version, "You're All I Need to Get By" (a remake of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's original released just a few years before).
