Suitcase

All hail the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul. After releasing her holiday album A Mary Christmas last year, Mary J. Blige is back with “Suitcase,” the first single off the soundtrack to Kevin Hart’s comedy Think Like a Man Too. When her man acts up, MJB packs her bags and hits the road on the emotional record.

“You gon’ wake up in the morn and find out that I’m already gone / Got a one-way ticket, here’s your goodbye song / And while you’re trying to explain, I’ll be zipping up my suitcase,” she sings over the snapping beat.

Mary has recorded an entire collection of music from and inspired by the film. Due June 17, the 14 tracks include a remake of Shalamar’s hit “A Night to Remember,” The-Dream-assisted “Vegas Nights,” and “See That Boy Again” featuring Pharrell Williams.
