Mary J. Blige is a 10-time Grammy Award winning singer and 2-time Academy Award© nominated actress, songwriter, dancer, and is known as the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul. And you will respect her as such. Bring up her commercials in this post and so help me God I will clock you with a crispy chicken wrap and old AT&T mobile flip phone myself. Absolutely no hateration or holleration in this dancerie. All joking aside and without further ado, let’s get into some dancerie in no particular order by the Queen.
The Lightsaber Dance
Absolutely no photoshopping here people!
Auntie Mary is that good and Iconic.
The Freestyle Blige
She’s really feelin’ herself and her music. Same.
The Church Lady
It was that good of a sermon y’all.
The It’s So Good You Can’t
Just Gif One Moment
It needed its full on video to show off this excellence in dancerie. But here:
The Hat Dance
Her hat is fitted, it looks good, and she can’t see any hateration with it being so low.
The Hail Mary Stomp
Jumping over drama and she landing on her feet.
The Go On and Shake It
Go Mary, go Mary, go Mary!
The Blige Boot Two-Step
These boots were made for two-stepping.
The Put The Knife Down
Before You Dance
Kerry Washington wanted to join but safety first Mary.
The Let Me Show You
How to Strut
Watch and learn Taylor Swift.
The Blige High Kick
If you get in the way and get kicked, it’s your own fault.
The “This is My Jam!”
It’s 1:13am and the DJ finally played the song you requested because you’ve been bothering him all night to play it. Bless.
The Choo Choo Betch
Come on, ride the train, hey, ride it
Come on, it's the choo, choo
Come on, it's the choo, choo train
