15 Genius Contemporary Cross-Genre Covers
“One” by U2, covered by Mary J. Blige
The 1990s saw the amazing rise of the Irish rock band, U2. So influential and inspirational was the group’s music that in 2005 the unimaginable happened: R&B discovered it. Grammy Award-winning recording artist Mary J. Blige took to the stage with U2 at a concert in New York and belted out the ballad, “One."
The collaboration garnered a standing ovation and led to several subsequent performances of the cover, including the 2006 Grammy Awards. Blige’s soulful vocals and strength lent a profound depth to an original that seemed impossible to top.
