Mary J Blige holds on to her Throne with The Breakthrough

Guest Author - Shelia M. Goss



When Mary J Blige’s new CD “The Breakthrough” arrived in the mail, I rushed to put it in the CD player. Mary is back better than ever before. She’s been the unofficial spokesperson for women everywhere. On “The Breakthrough,” Mary sings about being in a healthy relationship and self empowerment.

“Be Without You” is just one of many songs that you’ll find yourself loving. This is by far her best CD in years. Although I like the entire CD, the six songs I mention below (in my opinion) are strong enough to be released as singles and are certified hits.

Mary starts the CD off by celebrating love with “No One Will Do.”

“Enough Cryin”
talks about getting out of a dead end relationship. The song reminds me of “Not Gonna Cry” from the Waiting to Exhale soundtrack.

The lyrics "take me as I am or have nothing at all...I can only be me" is from the song “Take Me As I Am.” I can see this as being a women’s anthem song.

Mary reminds me of Chaka Khan in “Can’t Hide from Luv.”

She breaks it down in “Ain’t Really Love.”

Mary sang a classic when she sang “I Found My Everything.” An equivalent song would be “Inseparable” by Natalie Cole. If you’re not in love, after hearing “I Found My Everything,” it’ll make you want to be in love.

Let Mary take you on a musical journey as she celebrates life and love on The Breakthrough—you won’t be disappointed.
