I love some MJB. Her early music was the soundtrack of my 20’s. We are just a few years apart in age, so I related a lot to the things she sang about, back in the day. Not so much about being in an abusive relationship (and later confessed addictions), but more about coming into my own as a young black woman. I miss the 90’s!! While I can go either way with the holidays, I am looking forward to Mary’s new Christmas album. Sang it Queen of Hip Hop Soul!!
The album will be released on October 15, 2013. You can listen to snippets of the album here: http://maryjblige.com/
