Behind the Video: Mary J. Blige – ’25/8′

Mary J. Blige takes charge on set of the video for “25/8,” the first single from her upcoming album My Life II… The Journey Continues (Act I) (Nov. 21). Filmed by director Diane Martel, the R&B veteran puts on her red boots and takes to the streets of New York City. In an additional scene, she performs choreographed moves with her troupe of male dancers while dressed in the military-inspired uniform that she rocked on “Dancing With the Stars.”

“The song ’25/8’ is about not having enough time to spend with someone,” explained Mary of the Eric Hudson production. “It’s like the ultimate love when you’re having fun, time just seems to fly.”
