"Why can't we get it right no matter how hard we try?" Mary J. Blige sings in her single "Why?" The latest track from her album "My Life II…The Journey Continues (Act II)" features Maybach Music Group's head honcho Rick Ross.
In the video debuting today (May 9), the Queen of hip-hop soul finds herself up late worrying about a troubled relationship.
"I know you're fed up, so am I," MJB sings with the passion that she has mastered so well over the years. "But we just can't say goodbye," she continues in a dimly lit bedroom next to her sleeping lover.
In the spirit of moving on, the songstress doesn't lament for long but instead hits an extravagant lounge. There, Ross is surrounded by gorgeous women with a drink in one hand and an expensive cigar in the other. "I got her lookin' at me sideways, live every night like it's a Friday," he raps. And though Blige is still obviously focused on her relationship worries, she joins Rick Ross for a final performance at the lounge. The two, both dressed in white, complement each other as they perform under an elegant chandelier.
The glossy video ends with a final toast and falling confetti.
