Mary J. Blige literally won’t quit! And with each release, she outdoes herself again and again. Fresh off of her latest project, The London Sessions, which we touched on here and here, the rhythm and blues crooner dropped visuals for “Whole Damn Year.”
Shot in melancholic black and white, the video takes the viewer through different stories of break up. Each one emphasizes the devastating aftermath that a bad split can have, and the lingering side effects that you just can’t seem to shake off.
In the song, Blige laments,
See Winter took most of my heart
And Spring punched me right in the stomach
Summer came looking for blood
And by Autumn, I was left with nothing
This song packs a bit more of a punch than the poppy, fun singles that have been floating around cyberspace since The London Sessions dropped. It marks a return to Blige’s bluesy style, and gut-wrenching emotional effect.
