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…
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.
