Throwback Thursday: Mary J. Blige ‘No More Drama’
‘No More Drama’ is the second single from Mary J. Blige’s fifth album of the same name. The Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis produced track became another hit for Blige, peaking at number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 9 in the UK.
The song famously samples “Nadia’s Theme”, currently used as the theme music for the American soap opera The Young and the Restless. In the song, Blige calls herself “young and restless” in a further nod to the music sample. The video for the song won Blige her first MTV Video Music Award for Best R&B Video.
While the video is very dramatic showing individuals struggling through different types of drama in their lives, it does end on a positive note. The video also includes cameos from Mariah Carey and Diddy.
