Mary J Blige

19.7.2008 >> Kirjurinluoto Arena

(US)
modern R&B, hiphop, soul

Hiphop-soulin kiistaton kuningatar tunnetaan myös näyttelijänä, aktiivisena sosiaalisena toimijana ja mm. Alicia Keysin ja Keyshia Colen innoittajana.

Vuonna 1988 Mary J Blige levytti erään newyorkilaisen ostoskeskuksen levytyskopissa hetken mielijohteesta version Anita Bakerin Rapturesta, vaikka raaempi laulutyyli viittasikin Aretha Frankliniin ja Chaka Khaniin.

Hänen äitinsä poikaystävä saattoi sen Uptown Recordsin tietoisuuteen. Yhtiö kiinnitti Bligen. Pitkään tyttö sai laulaa vain taustoja muille, mutta kun hänen useita R&B-tuottajia hyödyntänyt What’s The 411? -albuminsa viimein julkaistiin 1992 Puff Daddyn opastuksessa, levyltä lohkaistut singlet You Remind Me ja Real Love myivät hyvin ja nostivat albuminkin listoille ansaiten Marylle ”hiphop-soulin kuningatar” -tittelin. Kaunistelemattomasti omakohtaisia tekstejä suosiva Blige on sittemmin tehnyt seitsemän listojen kärkeen noussutta albumia, uusimpana viimevuotinen Growing Pains.
