Mary J. Blige has made a career out of keeping it all sorts of real and it’s a trajectory she continues on new song ‘Know.’
Produced by Sounwave and co-written by Blige alongside the likes of Chi Coney and Blue June, the jam finds MJB in reflective mode.
Over a breezy throwback beat, the R&B royal reminisces on the hardships and hurdles she’s had to overcome – that women en masse have to overcome – and celebrates their collective survival.
Take a listen below…
We’re enjoying the steady flow of content Mary is feeding fans with as she presses on her ‘Royalty Tour’ with Nas – ‘Know’ being no exception.
With its rich R&B production, resonant lyrical content, and soulful vocal, we see this garnering solid summer spins on the Urban A/C format.
As for what’s to come, we’re buzzed – especially with Mary having signed a new deal with Republic Records.
‘Know’ doesn’t immediately play like an “I’m back bop.” So we envisage this, like Nas collab ‘Thriving,’ being more so a means of tiding fans over until album time. Whatever the case, we’re excited.
