New Song: Mary J. Blige – ‘Rent Money’ (featuring Dave East)

Published: Friday 21st Jan 2022 by Rashad

Mary J. Blige is keeping good on her promise to keep the new music flowing in early 2022.

Having already thrilled fans with the dually-released tunes ‘Amazing’ and ‘Good Morning Gorgeous’ (the title track from her forthcoming studio album), the Queen of Hip Hop Soul is building royal excitement for their parent project by releasing yet another cut set to line its tracklist.

Titled ‘Rent Money,’ the song reunites Blige with her ‘Know How I Feel’ co-star Dave East to trade verses about the importance of reciprocity in romantic relationships.

“This isn’t love this is foolish / I just want back what I put into this / And then I’ll keep moving / All of my chips on the table,” sings MJB.

As she gears up for this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show (as we reported here), hop inside to get familiar with Mary’s newest jam.

    Love the lyrics not a fan of the production. Dave East is a beast tho. Mary has released 3 singles that are so radically different. It seems she is throwing us a bit of everything to see what will catch instead of giving us quality music. I know she is a legend and has nothing to prove, but give us a project that has a theme/motif or even direction at the least. Love me some Mary, but I checked out on her albums after Growing Pains..it was downhill after that.

    I hate a song that starts off like this and your waiting 4 a beat to drop and it doesn’t. I get it, you want people to hear the lyrics but they can also get into more if there is a hard beat. Production has failed her once again, same with Alicia keys album. It alot going on but at the same time nothing drawing you in.

    Nooo.. not MJB doing these new school artist styles of music. This sounds like SummerWalker and SZA. *FacePalm

    If she is going to do that..then do it as a remix and not the original.

    • Truth teller January 21, 2022

      Stfu idiot It sounds nothing like either girls so why don’t u just sit tf down and go back to bed dumb h**

    • akathexfactor January 21, 2022

      More like they copied MjB 🙄 I luv the lyrics and chords, this song is 🔥

    • Tammy January 22, 2022

      This is literally her style. This is an old school Mary beat. Ya’ll be on here talking s*** and dont know what youre talking about. Even the lyrics are 90’s style.

  6. Dc January 21, 2022

    It’s clear Mary don’t care about sales but i wish she just stick to acting cause none of these new songs are it like she’s not even trying why the hell would she put Dave east. On a song ????

    • Still Over It January 21, 2022

      She can’t act either. Basically she has no talent. The last time Mary could hold a note was in 1999. 🤣

      • Dc January 21, 2022

        That Oscar acting nomination said otherwise so keep hating b i t c h 😂😂😂😂😂 Oscar nominated actress 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

      • Still Over It January 21, 2022

        Oscar nomination don’t mean s***. She can’t act. She is trash in Power Book. Cringeworthy acting 🤣 Don’t get me started on those dry sandpaper vocals either….

      • Dc January 21, 2022

        You must like summer walker flop ass who’ll never have a career like mjb what happened to that album she came n went 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

      • Dc January 21, 2022

        Making 400,000 per episode on power not acting huh hating a s s

      • Dc January 21, 2022

        Oscar nominated golden globe nominated sag nominated absolutely matters so who gives af bout a broke f a g hating

      • Still Over It January 21, 2022

        And her acting still trash through all of that. A couple diversity/sympathy nominations ain’t changing s***. Her acting is straight garbage lmfao. No if, ands, buts or maybes about it! Summers latest album is doing better than any album or single MJB released over the last decade. Thanks for your concern!!!

      • Dc January 21, 2022

        Bet you one of those theater f a g s that think they know about acting so unless your Oscar nominated stfu

      • Still Over It January 21, 2022

        Or maybe I just know good acting when I see it. Even Tyler Perry casts better actors in his ghetto chitlin circuit productions. Lmaoooo Mary couldn’t act her way out of a paper bag. 😭

      • Dc January 21, 2022

        Funny thing is Mary Oscar nominated making 400,000 per episode on power n u broke that’s hilarious 😂

      • Still Over It January 21, 2022

        You the broke one bragging about someone else’s coins. Kendu getting half of that anyway. That’s what she gets for marrying a bum😭

    • marilyn monh-O-E ® 👠(#1 DIVA) January 21, 2022

      Stfu b I t c h 💅🏾 Mary old hag haven’t had a hit in a decade. How can she re-connect with the younger audiences in Super Bowl half time show. Are you expecting only elderly people watching the show? Granny DC 👵🏿

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 January 21, 2022

    • Still Over It January 21, 2022

      That’s y’all old ass Mary stans being intimidated by Summer. 😭 Pipe down geriatrics. Go stream Mary’s latest flop singles. Funny y’all call Summer a bird when Mary married a bum now gotta pay him spousal support. 😭😭 Summer can sing too and has never been a crackhead. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

      • Dc January 21, 2022

      • Still Over It January 21, 2022

        Yeah 20 years ago when she could still sorta hold a note. Non acting and non singing self 🤣

  10. True Tea January 21, 2022

    MJB is no longer in her prime. Artists in their prime putting out FLOP music (Camila) is a major issue.

  11. JJ January 21, 2022

    This is probably the most toxic comment section on the internet. Nothin but hating queens lol The song sounds good. Its like no matter what she put out people sayin she tryna be this or that but really she has had music like this before. The new music out now isnt anything new or profound lol

    • Dc January 21, 2022

      Ima huge fan but Mary been in studio 3 years and all 3 singles suck def don’t sound like what Mary is capable of production on this song is terrible vocals terrible I’m over Mary she lost it

      • Traneika January 22, 2022

        Boy you aint no fan saying her vocals are terrible LOL Ya’ll trolls be on here with no life just saying anything HA!

  12. Bravo!! January 22, 2022

    I had to roll up & listen. The track is fire mos def! The element of the beat & Dave East sounds Decent. She should have song like the time on Oprah with Andrea Bocelli over this Beat.

  13. Traneika January 22, 2022

    Okay Mary J. I actually like this one. This s*** been on repeat since I first heard it.

  14. Sac January 23, 2022

    I aint gon lie, this joint is kinda hot. I didn’t expect it to be but it is. Sound like Old School Mary. Ya’ll dudes need to stop hating on the Queen. Someone said Summer Walker thats funny cuz Mary invented this type of music. It’s hip-hop mixed with Jazz. Im not a big Mary follower but everyone knows that or they should. She basically the blueprint for all these soul r&b chicks and younger people today dont even know it. It’s kinda sad when you think about it.
