Mary J. Blige - Hurt Again

Posted 8 years ago
Dre and Vidal, Brian Sledge

Although the Queen of Hip-Hop and R&B has released Hurt Again as the next single off her new album, Growing Pains, Mary J. Blige isn’t hurting at all.  Released on December 18th, her latest LP has nearly reached platinum-certification (with just under a million units sold); a high-water mark that not many artists in the entire music business can brag about.  Produced by Dre and Vidal, Hurt Again is the kind of song that makes Mary who she is as an artist.  Unwilling to cater to an audience that wants ‘girl power’ records blasted in the club, Blige dedicates the single to the age old lesson of learning from past mistakes.  Currently planning a tour for later this year, Blige can be spotted on the cover of the current issue of Vibe magazine.
