Here I Am is the fourth album from rapper/singer Eve. It was scheduled to be released on October 16, 2007, but has now been delayed until January 29, 2008. The Album received 3 mics in The Source Magazine.
It was originally thought that Mary J Blige & Eve only recorded one song together, but it has now been revealed that one called “Mirror” is a bonus track on Mary J Blige’s new album “Growing Pains” while the second is “Real Love” on this album. So there are 2 MJB/Eve collaborations!
