No More Drama sees Mary J. Blige say goodbye to the blues and take hold of a better future.
Awesome moments on the album include "Steal Away" (featuring Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes, who produced the track), the title track (which references the theme from The Young & the Restless), and "Destiny." "PMS," is a track bound to become an anthem for young women/sisters world-wide!
Mary J. Blige's fifth studio triumph No More Drama, includes songs and production from such notables Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Missy Elliot, Chucky Thompson, Swizz Beatz, Rockwilder, The Neptunes, Dr. Dre, Ron Lawrence, Kenny Flav, Dame Grease and Mary. Special guests include Eve, Hakeem, Missy and Lenny Kravitz. No More Drama is a passionate and purposeful exploration of the heart, soul and body. Like her 1999 Grammy nominated, platinum plus smash Mary album, which drew upon Ms. Blige's renewed confidence and reinvigorated spirituality, No More Drama is both affirmation and declaration of intent. No More Drama is filled with slice of life truths and sizzling tracks that are both deeply personal and richly universal in scope.
Ask Mary what she wants No More Drama to convey and she thinks for a bit. "I'd like people to be entertained but I'd like them to hear what I'm saying, too. But if it doesn't grab you right away, cool. Just dance to it. Just feel it until you are ready to hear what I have to say .. and then what ever happens will happen."
