Mary J. Blidge is the Shade Queen on Her New Track “Glow up” Feat. Missy Elliot, Quavo and DJ Khaled

In the face of tribulation, Mary J. does what she knows best. 

I attended the BadBoy Family Reunion Tour last year and “lit” is an understatement. It was nostalgia in its purest form, providing summer time flashbacks of good feels, good vibes and childhood dreams manifested.

A standout moment was Mary J. Blidges’ set, in which she performed her signature dance move. In Black cook-out fashion, the crowded responded with a repeated chant “Go Mary! Go Mary!”  It would be remiss of us to deny our littiest of Aunties the hype she deserves. And that’s who Mary J will continue to be in hip-hop, foreva, foreva.

Unfortunately, Mary’s music is synonymouss with her pain and her recent album, Strength Of A Woman is no different. A response to her current situation with her soon to be ex-husband no doubt, the album houses a track with Quavo, Missy Elliott and DJ Khaled entitled “Glow up.” Flexin’ on her exes in the highest form of shade, the R&B legend is a straight shooter on the track. If you thought the glow up was just one time thing, think again.

“You can be mad if you wanna (mad if you wanna)/ Really I’d be mad too if I lost a real dime ass woman (dime ass woman)/ Take a deep breath, baby ’cause I’m petty so you ’bout to see me stunting (skrrt, skrrt, skrrt)/ You ain’t care enough to keep a good thing,/ I’ma do it like it’s nothing (do it like it’s nothin’)/ Do it like it’s nothin’/ Do it like it’s nothin”
