Mary J. Blige is one of us. Despite her fame, fortune and legendary status, her love life has been a relatable rollercoaster – just in a higher tax bracket. She’s survived heartbreak and heart ache and provided her fans with the soundtrack to their own over the years. After working on herself on songs like “Good Morning Gorgeous,” Queen Mary is ready to find her true king and opens up about her journey on her new single “Still Believe In Love.”
Mary’s heart is healed, open and optimistic on “Still Believe In Love.” Before she begins singing, her artist Vado spits some bars over what sounds like a sample of Tevin Campbell’s classic “Can We Talk” and ’90s R&B-style production by DJ Cassidy and Jeff “Gitty” Gitelman. After Vado talks his talk, MJB steps up to the mic to share the peace she’s found.
“Well, it’s a whole new day, a whole new wave / Ain’t worried ’bout nothing / Everything’s looking up, yeah,” Mary sings, sounding like the picture of positivity on the first verse. By the pre-chorus, she makes it clear that it took her a while to get to this place, though.
“I been thinking of the time I wasted / I been looking in all the wrong places for love / That really brought me down, yeah / I’m so sick of being sad or lonely / Until I can find the one I know I need / I’ll never give up on me, no,” she resolves, which leads her right into the uplifting chorus. There, she declares, “I still believe in love,” and breaks us off with a “Shoo-bee-doo-bee-doo” that would make Charlie Wilson proud.
Blige released “Still Believe In Love” with a companion music video where she’s all about that yacht life. The superstar takes us on vacation with her, Vado and a few friends and family as they coast off the coast of Italy. The sun is shining, the scenery is stunning, her Sun Goddess wine is flowing, Mary’s ice is glistening and her designer swimsuits are fitting every curve.
Mary J. Blige is speaking our love language with “Still Believe In Love.” Her optimism about finding the one is contagious. We share her excitement and are excited about the prospect of a new MJB album on the horizon to follow 2022’s Good Morning Gorgeous.
