And I dropped a "Mary" album and people would say
That it's just not gonna work and my feelings they did hurt
But my fans showed me so much love and I owe it all to them
“Mary” was Blige’s 4th studio album. It was both critically and commercially successful.
Ann Powers of the New York Times wrote,
if Mary gestures toward an older, non-hip-hop audience, it also makes the claim for Ms. Blige’s canonization within the rhythm-and-blues hall of fame."
However, it was not as commercially successful as her past albums. As evidenced by the quote above, it was a different kind of MJB and some people didn’t respond to it. But her LOYAL fans stuck by her and supported a stylistically different brand of Mary J. Blige.
