In a lot of ways, Mary J. Blige and Led Zeppelin come from the same place: the blues. Mary considers herself R&B, but she's blues.  She's lived it. The Led Zeppelin dudes obviously loved the blues and were great followers of the masters like Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters.

Still, hearing Mary's version of "Whole Lotta Love" was a bit weird. Produced by RedOne, it kind of sounds like it's a car commercial. You can find it on the international version of her latest album, Stronger With Each Tear. Apparently, that version also contains a cover of "Stairway To Heaven"!  I haven't heard that one. But go here to find out where to get "Whole Lotta Love."
