Mary J. Blige is not known for issuing remixes, but the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul has decided to put her spin on Diddy-Dirty Money's "Someone to Love Me" by injecting her vocals and a Lil Wayne verse into the track. This "Naked" take chronicles the dismal struggle to find love as the songstress pours her heart into lyrics like "I'll be praying so hard to get through the day/Bad thoughts in my mind I can't shake/ Having nightmares in the day/ Can you relate?" Though her verses outshine the hook lyrically, the repetition of the phrase "looking for someone to love me" encapsulates the song's tone. And while their lyrics are melancholy, Diddy and Lil Wayne's verses still manage to add some spice to the otherwise somber mood. In stepping away from her trademark recording style, we hope Blige is warming up for an exciting new album with this remix.
