This month, Mary J. Blige will debut a show called The 411, which seems like it will include at least one episode of musical social justice and conversation with Hillary Clinton. In this clip, Blige sings what seems to be a heartfelt lesson of safety protocol for black youth in dealing with police.
As Blige sings, bespectacled and feeling it, Clinton looks on very studiously before Blige grabs her hand. “I just want to know, where do we go from here?” Blige asks; the edit cuts, and none of us will know Clinton’s response to this heartfelt a cappella until September 30, at which point we will presumably learn, if we have Apple Music. “Like you’ve never seen them before,” it says, and surely not.
