PhotobucketMary J Blige tampil dengan kesederhaan saat membawakan lagu I Am dalam penampilan American Music Awards-nya tahun ini. Lagu ini dialbim dari album Stronger With Each Tear yang segera meluncur 21 Desember nanti. I Am adalah sebuah lagu soul R&B yang sangat mengandalkan vokal MJB dibalut dengan alunan musik khas Stargate (Tor Erik Hermansen dan Mikkel Eriksen) yang enggak dipungkiri begitu cocok menjadi radio airplay. Tidak ada yang kurang dari lagu ini, vokal MJB sempurna.

Lovely synth, tepat pada porsinya. Fabulous strings intro dan iringan drum sepanjang lagu juga menambah mudahnya proses penyerapan lagu ke telinga. Liriknya juga kuat, mempromosikan diri sendiri bahwa tak ada yang lebih baik dari diriku. Maka kemudian credit juga diberikan kepada MJB, Johnta Austin, dan Stargate karena telah berhasil mempersembahkan sebuah lagu R&B which I enjoy hearing as much as 'Be Without You'.

Lyrics:

Hey no ... noo oooooh

Ain't nobody gonna treat you better

Ain't nobody gonna touch you better

Ain't nobody gonna love you better boy than I am

Than I am

When you're out at night and your in the streets

And you have her to yourself

Think of all the love that you get from me

That you can't find nowhere else

When you're far away and I'm not around

And temptation fills your heart

Think of all the ways that I'm faithful babe

To replace me would be hard

Cause ain't nobody

Ain't nobody gonna treat you better

Ain't nobody gonna touch you better

Ain't nobody gonna love you better boy than I am

Than I am

(nobody, nobody) than I am (3x)

Ohh Ain't nobody gonna treat you better than I am

You can try to act single if you wanna

You can go ahead and mingle if you wanna

You can even behave like you don't care

But you know (but you know) like I know (like I know)

That you ain't that foolish

Who you foolin'? You won't ruin

what's been here all along, you ain't movin'

from what you've got at home

Ain't nobody gonna treat you better

Ain't nobody gonna touch you better

Ain't nobody gonna love you better boy than I am

Than I am

(nobody, nobody) than I am (3x)

Ohhnobody gonna treat you as good as I am

I just want you to knowg

Baby I love you so

There is no need to go lookin' for nothin more

Cause I've got everything you'll ever need right here

But if you feel that you need to leave

Just know!!

Ain't nobody gonna treat you better

Ain't nobody gonna touch you better

Ain't nobody gonna love you better boy than I am

Than I am

(repeat)

(nobody, nobody) than I am (3x)

Ohh nobody gonna treat you as good as I am
