Mary J. Blige recently spoke about two of the most celebrated voices in R&B today, H.E.R. and Summer Walker.
“The first time I saw H.E.R. perform was at the Black Girl’s Rock shows, and I was getting honored, and I was sitting in the front row where she came out with this guitar and all this hair,” recalled Mary J. Blige. “And I would say, ‘Who was this beautiful little girl with this bass?’ I was in love from day one.”
As for Summer Walker, MJB wants to work with her too.
Mary says, “to have my arms open and love on them because I was young and I didn’t get that kind of love from a lot of the people that came before me.”
