"I Love You" is a 1995 single by American singer-songwriter Mary J. Blige, taken from her second album My Life. Released only as a radio single, it rose to a peak of #60 on the pop charts. It was occasionally the B-side for the previous dance hit, "You Bring Me Joy". There were plans and negotiations of a possible music video for this single to be shot back-to-back with "You Bring Me Joy", but plans were scrapped as it performed well on its own. I Love You (Part 2) was recorded with rapper duo Smif-n-Wessun. The song samples the piano loop of Isaac Hayes's "Ike's Mood" from 1970's album "...To Be Continued", and samples "Hollywood's World" by DJ Hollywood.
