Music Review: Said And Done - Mary J. Blige

Speed: 97 bpm

The DJ’s Take: Fresh track off of MJB’s new album Stronger WithEach Tear, and it’s been on repeat on my iPod since yesterday. The rich synth creates this mysterious aura that’s perfect for driving through a major city at night in your Benz (or rolling your Hot Wheels Benz on your carpet at home if your funds are low). Props to Ryan Leslie for another strong beat.

Does it have pop potential? I don’t think so. In fact, it’s not even the most touted track off its own album. That said, it’s definitely a good option if you spin hiphop and R&B at a more classy, laidback lounge or bar where you’re not obligated to rattle off the top 40.
