Mary J. Blige: Only Love (Audio)

Mary J. Blige’s “Only Love” surprised fans and reiterated her tireless work ethic all over again. The uptempo song uses First Choice’s “Doctor Love” and the disco vibe takes over. It’s not the first time Blige and Philadelphia’s First Choice were together in the same sentence as she covered “Let No Man Put Asunder” on her Mary album. “Only Love” sounds like a celebration of a new romance and it is a change from Strength Of A Woman which was about her difficult divorce. According to her Instagram post, “Only Love” marks a new beginning. 


Johnny Burgos Takes Advantage Of The Night In Video For Picture Perfect

Brookyln crooner Johnny Burgos uses night time as the backdrop to his “Picture Perfect” video. He dances in the street and scenes of a parking structure, school bus and bodega fly by as he moves. Burgos explained the idea behind “Picture Perfect”: 

“Picture perfect is about me coming to the realization that ‘real love’ is flawed, and despite what pop culture and society tells us, it’s supposed to be. It’s about acknowledging how dope it is to be 100% down for someone, through the depths of life’s lows and most complicated times, simply because what you feel for that person, makes them worth the sacrifices. To me, that feeling is love.

Burgos’ debut EP, Through It All will come out via Roc Nation this summer. 


NUEX Releases Video For Eyes

NUEX has collaborated with director Abraham Vilchez-Moran on their intense video for “Eyes.” A young Black boy and his anguish at home is the center of the narrative. A Black man dances around the young boy and appears to be his consciousness or possibly a guide who sees and feels his torment. NUEX has managed to create another bewitching visual to match the blistering emotion in their music. The duo just released their debut Affectus EP.
