Mary J. Blige finally gives us a video for her 1st single ’25/8′ from her My Life II album (In stores next month).  Mary said 24hrs in a day ain’t enough and 7 days a week just ain’t cutting the mustard. Yonkers poster child has days and days of love to give.. aww ain’t that sweet…

The video is simple with a few cut scenes of New York and Mary J gets Halloween Happy in her Street Fighter M.Bison get up towards the end… Who but Mary?

Peep out the visual after the jump.

I’m really trying to get excited for this new Mary J album but nothing she’s put out in recent years has moved me more than “The Breakthrough” which came out in 2005. Well fast forward to 2011 and Mary J is on the brink of releasing her 10th studio album. 


Now according to MTV:

VH1 Divas” is back and ready to celebrate some soul.

On Thursday (October 27), it was announced that Mary J Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Jill Scott, Florence and the Machine and Jessie J will serve as the star-studded lineup for the long-running concert event, which airs December 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on VH1.

This year, VH1 is paying tribute to prominent birthplaces of soul music, including Chicago, Detroit, London, Memphis and Philadelphia. Blige and company are expected to pay homage to these cities and the genre through their own soulful tracks as well as some of the genre’s classic tunes onstage at New York’s iconic Hammerstein Ballroom.

And it’s not just women who are in on the celebration, but also the Roots, who have been confirmed as the event’s house band. ?uestlove is set to pull double-duty during the concert as musical director too.(source)

Are you excited for this years line-up?
