i've been both off & on with Mary J Blige but have recently become amazed by how awesome her material has been. her new CD "Growing Pains" is no exception. the hooks and the lyrics really suck me in. this may be one of the best CDs of the year.

How'd you already get it?

Amazon says it won't be released until the 18.

It's being released on the same day as the Sweeney Todd soundtrack.

I just got my hands on a promo copy. A worthy follow up to her '05 smash "The Breakthrough". I'm not feeling that wig she's wearing on
the cover though. So far not a bad track in the bunch. I'm placing this baby on heavy rotation.

Folky, is there a type of music you don't listen too? re: Mary J Blige - Growing Pains

I'm not normally a big Mary J fan, but I might pick this one up. I've heard nothing, but good things about it.
I have NEVER met Cheyenne Jackson. I have never hung out with him in his dressing room, he did not tweet me, he never bought me a beverage, and he mostly certainly didn't tickle me. . .that is all.

The new single is HOT!

So I like what I see when I’m looking at me
When I’m walking past the mirror
No stress through the night, at a time in my life
Ain’t worried about if you feel it
Got my head on straight, I got my mind right
I aint gonna let you kill it
You see I wouldn’t change my life, my life’s just…..

Fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, ooooh
Fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, ooooh
Just fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, ooooh
You see I wouldn’t change my life, my life’s just fine
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” ~ Muhammad Ali

i love how that song and "Grown Woman" are basically her talking sampled word for word so quickly that it sounds like a beat. it rocks.
