      Retire for what? Worry about your flop fave struggling to sell albums so early in her career. Queen MJB never sold 9k in her first week.

    Flavor Mary! 🤳🏽💋 You’ve been an ICON to me since You Remind Me, which happens to be one of the best songs EVER! 💯 You’re the real deal….a beautiful, super talented GEM of an artist! And your pen game is crazy, one of the best songwriters! Keep being you, the Queen 👑 ❤️

    • marilyn monh-O-E ® 👠(#1 DIVA) April 14, 2022

      • Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 April 14, 2022

        You truly have LOST your mind 🤣 Wasn’t it YOU that was saying you loved Flopmila’s new album? Lmaoooooooooooo, you have horrible taste in music 🤣 Mary has one of the BEST voices! People like to say some artists have the voices of angels, but Mary is a TRUE angel 💯 Mary can sing joy AND pain, happiness AND sadness….and sometimes at the same time! Her ad-libs and riffs are second to NONE and come from the LORD….it doesn’t have to be technically perfect, it’s coming from the SOUL 🤳🏽 I can listen to Mary’s voice all day, Camicky can dream about it lol 💋

  11. Happy April 14, 2022
