I went to the Jay-Z & Mary J. Blige “Heart of the City” concert last night at the Meadowlands. The Mary J. portion went on a little too long. Listening to more than an hour of R&B (….make that 15 minutes), even fantastic soaring virtuosic R&B, is pretty tiring for me.
The Jay-Z half was like Christmas morning. I couldn’t help but be surprised by how many huge hits Jay-Z has recorded. The energy was great, the crowd did entire songs while Jay-Z stood on the stage quietly. The man’s a living legend!
