New Song: Mary J. Blige – ‘Mr Wrong (Ft Drake)’

Published: Wednesday 26th Oct 2011 by David

With the release of Mary J. Blige‘s ‘My Life II: The Journey Continues’ inching ever nearer, the project’s latest single, ‘Mr Wrong’, has surfaced.

Check out the Drake assisted cut after the jump…

Sigh.

The track has a weird duality in that it manages to be both classic Mary, while also somewhat of a snoozer; presenting a compelling question of whether “classic Mary” ticks the box in the current climate.

Cuts such as Kelly Rowland‘s ‘Motivation’ show that R&B can still be fresh and exciting in an era where Electro-Pop dominates the landscape. Yet, beyond, Drake’s opening bars, this drags. And, though becoming (only slightly) more interesting instrumentally on Ms. Blige’s second verse, this strikes as being little else than album filler.

Still, who knows how this’ll pan out. For, collectively Blige and Drake remain two of Urban music’s biggest names.

    The song sounds good to me. I expected a huge powerballad when I read the title and heard about the lyrics. But it’s nice. Better than ’25/8′ though.

  8. JOE FRANCO October 26, 2011

  9. Flashing Green October 26, 2011

    Amazing song… Rico Love needs to stop recycling his beats though. Sounds a lil bit like Motivation.

    I like this, but I always have a hard time fully getting into something from Mary when she sounds like she’s singing material meant for another artist. Overall it definitely seems like a topic she’d take on, but I just keep hearing a Brandy thing going on with her flow lately. It might just be me. Still, this track is decent.

  17. MaryJBligenews October 26, 2011

    “Mr. Wrong” is the 5th worldwide trending topic & “MaryJ” is 8 in the U.S.

  18. EXCUSE_ME!!!!! October 26, 2011

    THIS BEAT MAKES ME THINK OF “MOTIVATION” . . KELLY DID IT BETTER, SORRY! ! ! ! ! ! BUT STILL LOVE MARY

  19. Marysjoint October 26, 2011

  20. therealest October 26, 2011

  21. TRUTH October 26, 2011

    Booooooooooooooooooooooring. Sleeps….

  22. The Naked Truth October 26, 2011

    I actually like this….Drake definately sounds “Placed” on this track. And it does sound like “Motivation” but It will definately get radio play!

  23. lifee October 26, 2011

    Drake makes this track soooo boring. She could have done without him. Seriously……….

    :/

  24. k October 26, 2011

    This if fire!!! Yassss QUEEN MJB!!! Bow down bishes!!!

  25. brand new October 26, 2011

    Oh please. Fresh? Motivation was a basic rnb song that follows in line with all the other sexed up songs.

  26. Get Real October 26, 2011

    The beginning and the end have me, but the middle..Maybe Drakes part should be put in the middle somewhere to break up the …the slow consistency. It would be a nice pace changer, there we go!

  27. YOOSONDALOOSE October 27, 2011

    Very 90’s R&B. Hmmmm…
    Don’t think it will pick up.

  28. KD October 27, 2011

    Mary should have stopped releasing songs after “Be Without You”, that song was the TRUTH…I am still waiting for something even remotely close to that song.

    *crosses fingers* Hopefully the Beyonce feature will be the business.

  29. johndoe October 27, 2011

    @REF rico love didnt make the beat. JIm Jonsin did.

  30. Naquan October 27, 2011

    This sounds like Daddys Little Girl by J cole.. You can literally replace the words and it goes along with it

  31. Nigedlahmad October 27, 2011

    Mary get some better producers and writers!
    We need to hear you go in!!!

  32. TC October 29, 2011

    MARY HAS DONE IT ALL AND HAS GRAMMY’S IN HIPHOP, R&B, POP, ROCK AND GOSPEL TO PROVE IT. SHE IS QUEEN AND DOESN’T HAVE TO SHOCK OR “GO-IN” FOR ANYONE. THOSE WHO WASN’T IN PAMPERS WHEN THE FIRST MY LIFE DROPPED WILL KNOW THAT THIS IS THROWBACK TO THAT ERA. THIS SONG IS PURE FIYAH!!! WHAT OTHER ARTIST CAN TREND WORLDWIDE (REACHING TOP 3) AFTER 20 YRS IN THE BIZ??? MARY WAS HERE BEFORE A F***** “MOTIVATION”, WHICH BTW SOUNDS NOTHING LIKE “MR. WSRONG”. MARY GOT B****** SCARED CUZ SHE’S ABOUT TO SNATCH WIGS WITH UPCOMING CLASSIC
