Mary J. Blige's soon-coming tenth album, My Life II... The Journey Continues (Act 1), features the R&B songstress continuing to embrace a more danceable sound. There's also plenty of hip-hop vibes, of course, particularly on these two leaks that hit the web last night. First, it was the album's next single, "Mr. Wrong," that features an opening guest verse from Drake and sounds reminiscent of J. Cole's "Nobody's Perfect."
Then there's the Rick Ross-assisted "Why," which sounds much more like your typical Blige joint in the best way possible. I can see why she'd go with "Mr. Wrong" to (again) capture Drizzy's associative star power, but "Why" is the easily the better of the two. You can stream the tracks below. My Life II drops Nov. 21.
