ONTD Original: Rodney Jerkins aka Darkchild Appreciation Post

Darkchild has been serving us consistent hits for more than two decades. He has written and produced for powerhouses like Mary J. Blige, Whitney Houston, Brandy, and Jennifer Lopez. He created his own lane when it came to pop and r&b and his music continues to stand the test of time.

I Can Love You was written by Mary, her sister LaTonya Blige-DaCosta, Rodney Jerkins, and Lil' Kim. Though it was only a promotional single, it reached #2 on the R&B singles chart and remains a boots-over-the-knee bop!

Darkchild '99
Say My Name was the second #1 Destiny's Child single behind "Bills, Bills, Bills."

Blaque [Ivory] lending their vocals to the cinematic classic, "Honey" staring Jessica Alba.

The remix is the only version worth listening to, lbr!

Se7en's short-lived American crossover featuring Lil Kim. Best lyrics? "Trying make you my accessory/All girls are necessary", "I'm kinda like MJ/I like them black or white", "Like Will I'm Legend, feel me/You can Google me, baby"

Tatyana Ali aka Ashley Banks grew up on the set of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Two years after the show ended, Tatyana released Daydreamin', her only song to chart on the Billboard 100 (peaking at #6).

When Biebs was still fresh-faced but trying to cultivate his bad boy image.

Time Limit won the Song of the Year award at the 15th Japan Gold Disc Awards. Utada remains flawless while doing so.

Honorable Mentions: Whitney Houston - It's Not Right but It's Okay; Toni Braxton - He Wasn't Man Enough; Brandy and Monica - The Boys Is Mine; Jennifer Lopez - If You Had My Love; Lady Gaga ft. Beyonce - Telephone; Ciara - Dose...AND MANY, MANY MORE!!

ONTD, what's your fav Darkchild track?
