New Music: Mary J. Blige – ‘Hero’

Mary J. Blige

Mary J. Blige delivers an SOS on the empowering ballad “Hero.” “This is for all the young ladies out there who may need a hero. Sometimes we have to save ourselves,” preaches the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, who encourages women to be their own savior and get out of an abusive relationship before it’s too late.

MJB is prepping her new album My Life II: The Journey Continues for a September 20 release and has also penned the theme song for the upcoming film The Help.

    @mike, you’re kidding, right?
    We Ride is Be Without You, with a slightly faster beat. Stay Down was Be Without You with more heartache. I Am was the exact same thing. Mary needs a song that ISN’T A REDO OF BE WITHOUT YOU FOR ONCE!!!!!

    Fuck Maya and Mike…at least she talking about something with substance unlike Beyonce, Rihanna and the MAJORITY of popstars out there. These young kids wouldnt no a meaningful music if it slapped them in the face. Queen Mary J. all day.

    I LOVE Mary for this type of music, no one sings about things like this n e more. this is what i want Beyonce to sing about. it would definately make her more relatable to the people who arent big fans. but i love u mary and imma def go get this album

    @PunkAdams, You people need to realize that Beyonce can’t sing about things she doesn’t know she has been happy for almost her whole life. For better and for worse. I personnaly love mary j for her sad songs and beyonce for her love songs and funny songs even tho they might seem juvenile.

    its good but its not classic
    I think shes gotta start changing this up but still keepin that soulful shit. With all the bullshit music out there right now, mary could easily become #1.

    but this song sounds like everything else out right now

    okay to be honest this sounds a bit dated (i perfered someone to love me) i mean would hurt to do up-beat song not like dance/techno like club banger

    no ma’am… she entered the chorus flat.. and her voice is just wayyy too processed. I can kinda hear that her voice is changing some and IDK if they are trying to cover it up with that autotune or what, but it’ not WORKING. and the song is late.

    I’m a mary fan, and I don’t understand why some of her fans hated “The One” so much.. I lived. I think it’s that KNOCK. And the autotune was actually more minimal on that track than these new ones.

    IDK Auntie.. the nicki minaj track might be the best thing that has leaked so far.. sadly.

    @KNUCK, I think the question is, who is mixing her vocals? who is the engineer? who is AUTHORIZING? Rodney Jerkins and B. Cox would never have her sounding a mess.

    @KNUCK, hey what do u possibly know about working in the studio or whats involve when they decide 2 put a song 2gether? mary is well aware bout what shes doing, n she dont work with no amateurs

    @MR. FRANKIE, I obviously know more than you sis.. I have recorded before, maybe not on the same level as maury, but still..this is not the business.

    MR. FRANKIE Reply:

    @KNUCK, ok, ill give that u have recorded b4 so u might know about vocals a lil more than me cuz i dont sing but i have a small recording studio doing mainly tracks, but the 1 thing i have learn over time is that u got to have a reason why u do things the way u do it, especially when u r dealing with pros like her, lil kids recording in the home studio just want 2 hear themselves they aint got no direction, but mary its different, but u r rite her vioce is difrnt n some notes r unsusual but that doesnt mean its bad, they just wanted 2 convey a certain mood with this song or whatever they had in mind at that moment, thats what i do with ppl when they come 2 me 4 recording, good that u have an ear 4 this but mary is a picky lady n she would not approve this if it aint what she wants

    Mary dont need no damn autotune if it was used it was because she wanted to so all the damn haters shut the hell up as she proved on the Billboard Awards she can can still blow in 2011

    This song is hot. Mary’s music has substance, listen to the words. She’s the truth. Listen to her other new song “Miss me with that”. My Life 2 is gonna be a hit. Mary has millions of loyal fans that love her. These chicks wish they had 20 years deep. #R & B ICON
