Mary J. Blige drops her latest visual for her single Love Yourself from her new album, Strength Of A Woman, with help from fellow New Yorker, ASAP Rocky. The video shows Mary sitting in either distress or contemplation at the beginning of the video with a dope piano intro. Once the beat drops all the fire that Mary has inside her manifests on-screen in such a subtle yet in your face way. I’m sure I skipped over this song initially but seeing the visual with the old school Lincoln and Black Panther inspired men coupled with the lyrics helped me to appreciate this song. ASAP seems out-of-place but in the end how can anyone hate his cockiness? And now that I halfway remember Kanye being on the album version of the song, I really don’t miss his verse, so I’m going to take back what I said about ASAP. Mary is SINGING on this song even if its repetitive but we all are here to feel her pain at the moment. Check the video below.
