Mary J. Blige shows off her dance moves in 'The One' music video which guest stars rapper Drake.
In "The One" music video, Mary J. Blige is seen sharing screen with Canadian rapper Drake who lends his vocal to the song. She is captured dancing energetically through the up-beat music with several dancers before then Drake joins her and raps his verses.
Hours after the arrival of the video, Mary tweeted, "Thank you all for your comments. I really appreciate the love & The support. I really wanted this video to be crazy. I worked really hard." Another short message was posted later on, "OK... THAT VIDEO IS CRAZY!!!!! CONGRATS BABY GIRL..."
"The One" is the first single from Mary's upcoming ninth studio album "Stronger" which will come out in U.S. on November 24. Featuring today's music trend Auto-Tune, this track comes from the production hands of powerhouse producer Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins.
Explaining the usage of Auto-Tune in the song, Mary said during an interview on Angie Martinez's radio show, "It was for effect. I wanted 'Crazy Mary' to get her shine on. She couldn't get her shine with my regular voice. I used the effect. I used it as a telephone effect or reverb."
