Mary J. Blige may have been dubbed the Queen of Hip Hop Soul very early in her career, but her artistry has never been limited to the Urban spectrum. Having experimented with sounds related to Gospel, Pop, and even Rock-related offerings, the Grammy-winner’s discography boasts an array of sounds – a point underscored by her most recent endeavor, ‘Stay With Me.’
Not to be confused with her award-winning remix of Sam Smith‘s 2014 hit, ‘Stay With Me,’ her latest release is a remake of the anthemic rock cut by the Rod Stewart band Faces. Originally released in 1971, the R&B diva’s stirring revamp of the tune comes as her contribution to the deluxe soundtrack for season 1 of the hit Netflix original series, ‘The Umbrella Academy’ (of which she also stars).
