Mary J. Blige: ‘My Next Single Will Be ‘Mr. Wrong”

Published: Thursday 29th Sep 2011 by David

After the generally positive response received from her single ‘25/8‘, Hip Hop Soul Queen Mary J. Blige has confirmed the name of its follow up, a Rico Love produced cut named ‘Mr. Wrong‘.

Lifted from her upcoming ‘My Life II‘ album, due out November 21st, Love gave further details  just hours ago and explained why although he wrote the song for Mary, it is in many ways a song about himself.

More information below…

Speaking to RU, he admitted:

I wrote it because in many ways I am Mr. Wrong. It’s an extremely soulful song that expresses the true level of love that a woman can have for a man who simply is no good for her.

Responsible for five of the album’s tracks, he went onto reveal what fans can expect from it:

Basically I just tried to channel that classic Mary that we love, the ‘Not Gon’ Cry’ and ‘I’m Goin’ Down’—that type of emotion, along with just some fly, bounce Mary, the ‘You Remind Me’ vibe. I was trying to connect with that because that’s something that made me fall in love with her.

With ’25/8′  seemingly unable to provide Ms. Mary with a chart position worthy of a clap, snap or applause, there are some who question how its supporting album will fare upon its release.

However, taking her previous LP’s into account, Blige has always been and will hopefully remain and album based artist, often moving more copies than single led artists who though enjoy success on the Billboard Hot 100 fail to do so on the Billboard 200.

Either way, with or without a smash hit single, ‘My Life II‘ is destined to outsell Rihanna‘s release which is due out on the same day.

For as much as her Navy would like to deny it, if Ms. Fenty failed to achieve a #1 with ‘Loud‘ even with the aid of  ‘Only Girl In The World‘ and ‘What’s My Name‘, the  chances of scoring a number 1 with this album are very slim.

Almost as slim  as a Destiny’s Child reunion tour  occurring with all original members present.

Yes, including Farrah.

    Don’t get me wrong – I love MJB and I think she can do no wrong but this website is SO bias! “Positive response from 25/8”? That song TANKED! Sam puts Kelly Rowland, Beyonce and MJB in pedestals and give them positive feedback regardless, while humiliates other artists despite them having a much stronger chart positions. This website makes me laugh.

    The song “25/8” was just sent to Radio Monday. The single is currently the most added song to Urban AC radio.

    The Quiet before the storm. She’s coming…

    @Johnny you have no idea what your talking about. The song was just sent to radio this week for official release. Mary has had buzz surrounding 25/8 since it was released online and especially after her LIVE(vocal) performance on Good Morning America. Check the radio spins before you start stating something tanked. The song was also in the U.S R&B top 10 on itunes in less than 24 hours after her GMA performance. Video just shot and the 3rd most added song to radio. The queen is getting ready to creep up on all y’all assess

  16. CC September 29, 2011

    MJB is HIGHLY respected in the industry by her peers and people outside her genre. Rihanna is really just a joke. She has no talent and no one respects her or sees her as a real artist. She’s just a puppet created by a record label to cater to and exploit the bad taste and ignorance of 15 year olds who don’t know any better for the time being. Mary will annihilate Rihanna when they go head to head.

  17. Jurick September 29, 2011

    Mary J Blige goin sell more cd than rihanna so kill that noise!

  18. Parisian girl September 29, 2011

    P.S:throw that blonde wig away plz
    ——–
    Why? So Rihanna can rummage through Mary’s trash to steal it?

  20. NYC-Superstar September 29, 2011

    MAry needs to start this project over. My Life II is not living up to its predecessor. She needs to retool this one a bit before releasing. All of her singles sound like songs that did not make it on her last album. If she releases this with Rihanna she will be slayed by Rihanna..smh

  21. …baa, President of the itty bitty titty committee! September 29, 2011

    They really need to beef up moderation on this blog.

    Anyways, Mary is far superior to “white acting” Rihanna, whose music, style and whole personality is the definition of “corny.”

    You see, Mary has talent, an superior catalog, a history of number 1 albums, and is an icon. Rihanna is a generic bimbo who can’t sing, dance, or perform worth a damn. Her only talent is fitting cheap nylon Ronald McDonald wigs over that large head of hers…oh, and getting her ass beat by Chris Brown.

    Mary stans ignore those stupid ass rihanna stans !

  26. tilis September 29, 2011

    Thanks to Monica, all of these R&B singers are trying to go back to their roots and I’m not even mad.

  27. nice_gurl September 29, 2011

    I am so excited about this album, like I was with 4 and Watch The Throne. 25/8 is a great single and I can’t wait till I hear more music from Mary J.

  28. A Nu Day Has Come September 29, 2011

    Regardless if what she puts out , really no one but the black demographic is checking for her music!! Again contrary to what most of you think is good, this computer style, hood s*** sound she’s going for is really old! I wish she would just make an organic r&b album! It seems to me that everytime she works with these. Atlanta producers she falls short of her real musical potential! !! She really needs better to people working on her albums. Her 2006 album was really good, buying want to make an album that really brings out her voice!!

  29. A Nu Day Has Come September 29, 2011

    Sorry on a touch screen

  30. nikigirl September 29, 2011

    Love me some MJB! However, I’m not feeling her new music.

  31. CzarM September 29, 2011

    Funny how some of the same ridiculous, offensive drivel is being parroted under multiple names. Trying to make your position seem more popular than it is with sock puppets is pathetic. Those guilty of it know who they are. If you’re going to try and pull a fast one by posting under different aliases, though, then at least attempt to change up your writing style so you won’t look so transparent. Silly ass neglected kids playing around on the computer. TGJ should require people to register with a verifiable email address before they are able to comment.

    That being said, I expect Mary to come out ahead of Rihanna. Personally speaking, I own most of Mary’s discography, but I haven’t bought a single Rihanna CD and I don’t see that changing at this point. I don’t like her “music” or recognize her “talent.”

  32. Avenger September 30, 2011

    MJB is light years ahead of Rihanna. To even compare them is silly. Like comparing a T-Bone steak to a kids meal.

  33. Bouncy Baby! September 30, 2011

    I love Mary J and will definately buy her album.

  34. KWAME September 30, 2011

    TGJ STAFF, FARAH IS NOT AND WILL NEVER BE AN ORIGINAL MEMEMBER OF DC SO GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT!!!!!!! SHE WAS ONLY HIRE FOR A SHORT WHILE TO SING BACK UP …………………!!!!!!!!!!
