At the conclusion of her Access Granted for the “Heaven Sent” video, Keyshia J. Blige talked about her love of the Queen of Hip Hop Soul, noting that she and the first Mary J. Blige are both strong women that have been through a lot — although she made it clear that she is her own person.
Yeah, about that: As much as I like Keyshia Cole, her original album cover for Just Like You looked like a lost promo shot from the Share My World era. Then there’s her second single sounding like a direct rip off of “Enough Cryin’.” I can’t forget the swagger jacking of Mary’s old wigs and haircuts. And now this video.
Keyshia: Mary called. She’d like her video treatment back. This is the “Everything” video on a different beach.
I like Keyshia’s sophomore album so much that I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt. But if I hear she started getting her ass beat, I’m going to call the police and get Mary’s life back.
