Mary J. Blige’s ‘Stronger’: Will You Be Buying?

stronger with each tear

Mary J. Blige‘s 9th studio album ‘Stronger With Each Tear’ hit stores in the US today.

Though initially sceptical about the project based on earlier samples, we here at That Grape Juice are loving what Blige has served up with this and  have had the LP on constant replay since receiving it. Best described as “one of those albums where (almost) every song could be a single”, Blige is clearly onto a winner this go round. Here’s hoping the record’s sales reflect that.

Will you be buying Mary J’s ‘Stronger With Each Tear’?

    No the holidays call for other things but I hope the sells are great.

    I Love U, Tonight, and Good Love are my favorites, but it’s ridiculously consistent and a very positive record. She goes young without selling out (IMO) and it just feels like a Mary J Blige record — no other way to explain it.

    I’ll be getting it ASAP and hope it sells tremendously well.

    I wonder if Sam will write a scathing comment about the album being less than $4 on Amazon mp3 like he did with Rihanna? No, I thought not.

    The album is okay but it’s HARDLY ‘one of those albums where almost every song could be a single’, unless by a single you mean a minor hit at urban radio and nowhere else. It’s just more of the same from Mary. Full of perfectly nice midtempos which don’t climax. The only proper ballad is a bonus track taken from a soundtrack, for god’s sake…

    I really miss the MJB who gave us amazing material like Be Without You, No One Will Do, Baggage, MJB da MVP, One, We Ride and Reflections (I Remember) between 2005-6. She’s lost all her direction and it’s a huge shame.

    Not buying Mary’s CD but I like it …a lot. Especially “I Feel Good” because it reflects my personal headspace.
