“Every time I think of the lies you told to me, make it easy for me to leave”
If Mary J Blige’s new single, U+ME (Love Lesson) is any glimpse of how her next album is going to sound, music lovers are definitely going to be in for a musical treat. The new track finds Mary reflecting on her past relationship and the lessons that both she and her ex have learned. Fresh from the heels of her real life divorce, Mary sings with such emotion and passion that one cannot help but to become entranced by it. Mary is giving you sure enough R&B with a music track that makes you shake your head and reflect on your own past or current relationships. This is definitely a vibing song that deserves critical recognition.
“Must of been crazy to think that you loved me. I saw all the signs but I just couldn’t say nothing”
The five minute piece is every bit of sorrowful as it is glorious. For Mary is not drowning in her pain but rather overcoming it. This strength is heard as she lets out a gospel like war cry in the chorus. Mary has definitely been in the studio cooking up something great. Her last single, Thick of It stayed at #1 on the Adult R&B Songs Chart for multiple consecutive weeks. Just goes to show that you can turn a personal tragedy into triumph.
