Mary J. Blige Wears Her Sunglasses At Night In New Video

Mary J. Blige emerges from the London fog, a yellow dress sparkling in the street light. Her sunglasses are on. The haters will be dimmed tonight. For, Blige is coming back and bringing a little London Town cool to her no-more-drama NYC self (with help from a few of the U.K.'s biggest talents, like Sam Smith and Emily Sandé).
"Right Now" is her battle cry and its Disclosure-produced vibes are endlessly cool. The video is sleek; an infectious preview of what's to come on her 13th studio album, The London Sessions, dropping November 24. If anything, this video is an example of how to own the night — sunglasses or none. The metaphorical shedding of the man weighing her down via massive coat at the 2:04 mark is life-giving. Indeed, Mary's found her London calling.
