Musicians and soul music aficionados alike can appreciate someone with a Magic touch—someone who can switch it up, adding something special over gentle acoustic rhythms, superfly saxophones and strings. Following Robin Thicke’s Evolution, producers, rappers and singers have anxiously been waiting to hear what this evolving magic is all about. Mary J. Blige, fresh off a tour with Jay-Z, is ready to test the waters on the official remix of the first single off of Something Else. Doing a vocal tango over Robin’s self-produced track (for which his lyrics have gone unchanged from the original), the Queen of Hip Hop Soul oozes confidence. Robin’s third studio LP, Something Else, will be released on September 30.
