Watch Mary J. Blige Perform ‘Love Yourself’ With The Roots on ‘The Tonight Show’
Mary J. Blige finally gave her longtime fans just what they’ve been waiting for with her new Strength of a Woman album, and she’s making sure they get the full experience. The “Be Without You” singer hit The Tonight Show stage to perform her single, “Love Yourself.”
While the original track features Kanye West, he was unable to make it for the performance, but Mary didn’t take the stage alone. The Roots joined the R&B Queen to help her deliver a powerful, soulful rendition of the motivational song, although the band was a bit hidden in the background to keep the focus on Mary. The veteran vocalist sang her heart out to the track, which is the opening song on her brand new album that is now available everywhere.
It’s been a big week already for Mary. Last night, she attended the 2017 Met Gala in New York City, where she sported a sleek black dress that showed off her leg through a slit cut-out. While Rihanna seemed to grab the most spotlight for her ensemble, Blige was still jaw-dropping in her ensemble.
