I Didnt Think It Could Happen To The Queen Of Hiphop Soul..lol
but damn... Mary J fell off
i didnt hear the album yet... but that new single Dr Dre produced aint doing it at all.. that shit is wack...
Her best albums in my opinion were from the badboy days "Whats the 411" and "My Life"... and ofcourse the 411 remix album.
not for nothing but she aint even looking good anymore
i burnt more project #iggas than Mary J Blige did -big iz (bounce squad)
in my opinion any song that has the word "CRUNK" in it..... sucks
we're talking post-"mary" here eric. the new stuff... its.. its.. its..... just like the other r&b thats out today, rap and bullshit.
At first I wasn't feelin' the new single - but it's grown on me - however, I can't get over the fact that the beat is wayyyy too reminiscent to "X" by Xzibit...
But I don't think Mary has fallen off - her last album "Mary" was my personal favorite...
The problem is , she can't write songs...
Everything that SHE writes sucks,,, wack hooks...gay lyrics talking about "crunking" and shit.
Her old shit was written by other people..
She needs to stop being greedy and just let people write hits for her and just sing them.
i read some shit in vibe about a month ago about this... she goes "i'm done putting emotion into my music, thats old mary. new mary just wants to make you dance"
something to that effect anyway
just straight up sad.
i thought i was alone in that thought! i saw the video and just got sad, does everyone want a Dre beat?
she fell WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY the fuck off, on purpose at that.
she has a problem.. she don't know weather she wants to be cryin in videos or thuggin it with Method man.. she fell off long ago... it hurt me too cause she was definitely one of the dopest r&b singers out in like 93...
I felt that way, but then I heard the track for the second time and liked it.
Nothing like her old work though.
