Today From The Vault salutes the one and only Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul. This week’s pick is Mary J Blige with the R&B classic ‘Just Fine.’

After finally finding love and peace, MJB felt it time to switch things up and record more upbeat songs.

‘Fine’ was exactly that and was released as the first single from Blige’s 2007 album ‘Growing Pains.’

The cut was helmed by Tricky Stewart and The Dream with additional production from Jazze Pha.

It was a critical home-run, earning multiple Grammy nods, and was also a moderate chart hit peaking at #22 in the US and #16 in the UK.

**************

Chris Applebaum directed the song’s visual which was nominated for Best Hip-Hop Video at the 2008 VMAs. The clip depicted Mary showcasing her signature dance moves in front of various backdrops, and rocking high fashion couture. Although she is the only protagonist in the vid, her charisma and all around swag are alone to make it a highly enjoyable moment.

**************

Though recent years haven’t been her most prolific on the chart front, it seems Mary’s legendary status has only grown stronger.

25 years + later, she hasn’t lost any of what made her a class act — unlike some of her peers.

At a time where power ballads are as big as turn up anthems, maybe Mary can score herself another big track a la ‘Be Without You’ or ‘No More Drama’? Or, given how versatile she is, perhaps a fun song akin to ‘Just Fine’ is what the comeback doctor ordered?

Either way, we’re ready when you are, MJB!
