    Mary J. Bilge said she doesn't normally look at the Billboard charts, but after “Family Affair” had been number one for six consecutive weeks, she checked the chart for the first time and said, “Whoa, this is really real!”

    The original skeleton of an idea for this song was intended for rapper Rakim, but when Mary J. Bilge hear it she wanted to finish writing the song.
