''The bridge it's the most spiritual part of the song because it's saying we don't need haters, we're just trying to love one another: We're here on this Earth together and we have to get along, so please leave your problems outside and try to make it work." . Dr. Dre (producer)
''I don’t think I realized I was successful in music until ''Family Affair''. I was on tour and the bus driver was a white boy who was listening to his country music radio station. I’m sitting at the front of the bus and ''Family Affair'' came on. I got really nervous and said ‘Something different happened, why is my song on the country station?’. That’s when I realized that I was huge, because country is a big deal. The bus driver said, ‘This is the best thing in the world. This is our song!'' - Mary J. Blige
