Type :    

  Summary  

I'll Be There for You/You're All I Need to Get By is a Grammy Award-winning duet performed by rapper Method Man and R&B singer Mary J. Blige.

The song is a remix of Method Man's "All I Need" , 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. Another version of the song was released, entitled "Puff Daddy Mix," which was produced by Sean Combs. The song contains a new instrumental which includes a repeated sample ("Lie together, cry together/I swear to God I hope we fuckin' die together") from The Notorious B.I.G.'s "Me & My Bitch". Another remix version, titled "Razor Sharp Mix" was produced by RZA. The song received a platinum certification for single sales of over 1,200,000 in the U.S. making it the only female/rap collaboration to achieve sales of over 1 million sales in the 90s.

The song peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in June, 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.

"I'll Be There for You/You're All I Need to Get By" appears on Radio 1 Established 1967, a compilation album celebrating the 40th anniversary of BBC Radio 1. In 2008, it was ranked #44 on VH1's "100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop" list. In 2009, Method Man and Mary J. Blige performed the song together at VH1's 6th Annual Hip Hop Honors ceremony. The song is often cited as the hybrid of what's now known as "Thug-Loved" duets.
