Today, Mary J. Blige released a video for The London Sessions single “Whole Damn Year” directed by Mike Ho and Alex Moors. Blige is well-known for confronting issues of social injustice and violence in her work, and this video is no exception. Although they’re beautifully shot and edited, the story lines found in the video for “Whole Damn Year” are difficult to stomach — domestic disputes that escalate into violence before concluding in tearful apologies. Watch below, but consider this a trigger warning for victims of domestic violence.
The London Sessions is out now via Capitol.
