Watch Mary J. Blige’s New Video ‘Strength of a Woman’

Mary J. Blige has released a video for “Strength of a Woman,” the title track to her 14th studio album. Directed by Andrew Sandler, the video finds Blige, dressed in an all black ensemble, on top of the Capitol Records Tower in Los Angeles. As Blige belts the powerful lyrics, an aurora hovers over the building at night. From a construction worker to a nurse, the beautiful lights attract women of different walks of light.

“We’re the wisdom like a guiding light / We’re the trees left standing through the storms of life / We’ve come so high and we’ve come so far / Can’t hold us back,” Blige sings.

“Strength of a Woman” was produced by Teddy Riley and Brandon “Bam” Hodges. The album, Strength of a Woman, is out now.

Blige’s A&R Eddie Fourcell exclusively chatted with Rated R&B about her new album. “This album will prove that Mary J. Blige has made an album in 2017, 25 years after her debut and still made an amazing record that still stands the time,” he told Rated R&B. “We didn’t make it a dated album. It doesn’t feel like What the 411? but it feels like what she was on there . You’re going to be extremely pleased with the album.”

Mariah Releases Video for Holiday Song ‘The Star’

Mariah Carey has release visual for her new holiday single “The Star” from the soundtrack of the animated film of the same name. Directed by Jeb Hardwick, the video features Carey looking fabulous in a shiny dress as she sings in front of festive backdrops. Her twins Roc and Roe also make a cameo in the video.

In The Star, a small but brave donkey named Bo yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill. One day he finds the courage to break free, and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a loveable sheep who has lost her flock and Dave, a dove with lofty aspirations. Along with three wisecracking camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become unlikely heroes in the greatest story ever told – the first Christmas.

The film hits theaters this Friday (Nov. 17) and includes voice overs from Carey, Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Steven Yeun, Christopher Plummer and more.

“The Star” isn’t Carey’s only new Christmas song. Last week, she released “Lil Snowman” from the soundtrack for her animated film, All I Want For Christmas Is You, available now.
