It’s been a rocky year musically for R&B royal Mary J. Blige. Yet, as ever, the Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul has dusted herself off and blazed back with a banger.
The song in question? ‘Everyday People’.
Produced by Jermaine Dupri and Bryan Michael Cox, the cut is believed to be the lead release from ‘My Life II: The Journey Continues (Act 2)’ – an LP Blige exclusively confirmed was in the pipeline during our chat with her last year.
Chilled, laid-back, and authentic Mary, we’re feeling this. The Sly & The Family Stone sample never gets boring.
That said, we can’t but wonder whether this is strong enough to re-rev the ‘My Life II’ project – which any such single would need to in light of the project’s so-so performance thus far.
Still, solid track.
