Before you think about expressing indignation that we’re not starting the day with something from the mainstream (and that premiered on TRL yesterday, no less) — just press play and oh-Blige us — and recognize the Queen of Hip Hop Soul isn’t one to step to when it comes to videos. OK Mary’s little opening confessional is missable, but then we get some “Can You Feel It” style energy hand, mirrors, Studio 54 backdrops, and like 25 different, videogenic Bliges all in pretty fabulous attire. Sad when you wake to find a diva looks better in a tux than you do, eh dude? Kudos to the team that whipped this one up.
Growing Pains is expected on 12/11 via Matriarch/Geffen.
