Video Premiere : Mary J Blige’s ‘Why?’ Featuring Rick Ross

The Queen Of Hip-Hop/Soul Mary J Blige just unveiled her latest video ‘Why?‘ featuring rapper Rick Ross, from her Gold-certified 10th studio album, ‘My Life Pt II : The Journey Continues (Act 1)‘. Although personally I find the song just about average, trust Mary to gloss it up with a slick video (rare are the times when Mary J Blige comes out with just an average music video). With over 600,000 copies of the album sold, Mary’s pretty much added another hit album to her discography, and while ‘Why?‘ seems to be a good video, I do not see the song being the sleeper R’n’B hit that the Drake assisted ‘Mr Wrong‘ eventually turned out to be, moving slowly and steadily into the top 10 of he Billboard R’n’B Singles Chart. The album’s packed with amazingly well crafted Urban Radio hits like ‘Empty Prayers‘ (definitely an adult contemporary hit waiting to happen), the Beyonce-assisted ‘Love A Woman‘ (a bona-fide # 1 smash on Urban Radio if this one’s released), as well as the Nas-assisted ‘Feels Inside‘, a cleverly crafted track that could well cross over to Pop Radio. Videos for these records would definitely push the album past Platinum status in the US. Check out the video for ‘Why?’ featuring Rick Ross right here :
