Songs to Inspire and Uplift Black Women

- By

Mary J Blige “Work That”

“Just because the length of the your hair aint long
And they often criticize you for your skin tone
Go on and hold your head high cause you a pretty woman
Get your runway stride home and keep it goin’
Girl live your life”

Not every Mary J song you learn something from has to be an emotionally charged ditty about her many misses in love. Mary can be happy and still be moving to the soul, and that’s where “Work That” comes in.  A banging beat accented by what comes off sounding like the pings of a xylophone, you’ll definitely be dancing somewhere in your draws, hair a mess, but a huge smile on your face as you get ready in the morning to face this hot mess of a world. An anthem for the constantly misunderstood black woman (cause “they gon’ hate anyway don’t you get that?”), stop crying in a hair brush to “My Life” and go “Work That.”
