From The Vault: Mary J. Blige – ‘No More Drama’

Mary J. Blige‘s 2002 smash ‘No More Drama’ serves as this week’s From The Vault pick.

Lifted from the 2001 blockbuster album of the same name as its second offering, ‘Drama’ peaked at #15 on the US Hot 100 and on the lower tier of the Top 10 on the UK Charts at #9.

And while Blige boasts higher chartings with other releases, the stirring cut  stands as one of the most well knowned cut from the Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul.

Helmed by the ever-so-creative dynamo duo of Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, the heartfelt track is built around a sample of classical piece ‘Nadia’s Theme’, the very same song used as the theme from never-ending American soap opera ‘The Young and The Restless’.

And while such sample was sourced from fantasy, the song’s lyrical narrative was akin to the happenings in Mary’s wold. Indeed, ‘Drama’ represented a turning point in her life; she would reveal that it marks the first time she would let go of the pain in her life and finally allow herself to be happy or at least seek for happiness. For the music world at large, the song -for a period of time- served as an unofficial response of sorts to the September 11th calamity which rocked the free world to its core.

The track’s accompanying video (which sees cameos from Mariah Carey and Diddy) does a great job of capturing the song’s embedded passion and  raw emotion through an array of storylines. All of which relay different “strands” of drama folk face.

Through her stellar career Ms. Blige-Isaacs has experienced many peaks and troughs, yet has always stayed true to her colours musically and morally. A practice which has cultivated her a level of respect from her peers, critics, and fans, which can be neither shaken nor stirred. True talent can, and often will, win.

ROC Rivals: Could Rita Ora ‘Dethrone’ Rihanna?

Since she emerged, Albanian Popstress Rita Ora has been pitted against Island tart Rihanna.

Perhaps due to their similar background(both being signed by Jay Z and groomed to a greater or lesser extent by Beyonce), or  their similar aesthetic, their supposed rivalry heated up weeks ago with the release of ‘Party‘, Ora’s debut single.

Indeed, in what we agree is ‘tabloid trash’, Rita’s ‘out of the blue’ launch is said to have been Carter’s way of ‘getting even with Fenty’, for working with her ex Chris Brown against his wishes.

So, though we feel there’s room for both to flourish under his guidance, we ask this:

If Jay Z set his mind (and influence) to it, could he replace Rihanna with Rita, if the former  ‘stepped out of line’?
