This is the official cover

I don't like the "strength of a woman" type with the gold effect but I love the image

Posted by: cmac803 Mar 28 2017, 08:12 AM

Man y'all are so negative. This is the worst "fan" site ever. I'm grateful for the Instagram fan sites where people actually support Mary and not criticize every single thing she does. Nothing makes y'all bitter selves happy smh. When I joined this board in 2002 it was NOTHING like this. We gave an honest opinon from time to time but we still shared our appreciation for Mary that's why she shouted us out back then on the VMAs. This board should be deleted cause it has no purpose. I definitely won't be back.

No need to announce a date wayyy out and make folks wait for an eternity while steady dropping songs. This is how it should/is done nowadays.

Posted by: ajh 723 Mar 28 2017, 04:22 PM
Judging by the comments on Fb, Twitter and IG, the fans
are definitely looking forward to this album. U + Me (Love Lesson),
is already #6 on The Adult R&B chart. I wouldn't be surprised if this single
went #1 as well.

Did you also purchase the singles before the preorder? Apparently that's what I did, but Apple also charged me again and the songs from the album version doesn't even play...but I can play the actual singles. 🤷🏾‍♂️ I don't know what happened or how to fix this issue.

My honest opinion is that the cover looks cheap and ghetto, but I will buy the album no matter what the cover looks like. And if there are going to be different covers, I will buy a copy from each. Love and Life was a genious strike in that matter, I have it in every colour, albeit I almost never listen to it.

I don't remember you for being here around for as long as you claim to. In fact, I don't know you at all. But people change names more often than their sheets, so it's understandable.

I think 14 songs is enough. In fact, I would scrap 2 worst songs from that list. Give me an album where there is not a mediocre song! Mary had it before.

I thought she'd perform U + Me, being so that it's number one this week.

17 or more tracks is normal for a mary album...

Posted by: BeEasy Apr 26 2017, 07:45 PM
She needs to drop the videos for 'U + Me' and 'Love Yourself' pronto. If she gets Ye in the video, to do his verse, it would be HUGE due to the fact that he's been out of the public eye for awhile

She usually throws in interludes but hasn't done so in awhile. Had she included 3, there would be your 17 track album. But no 14 songs is what we usually get. 'What's the 411' had less.

Like a hit...it has to be the next single. It's something definitely urban radio would eat up. Missy starts off first and then Mary comes in. The beat is hard, very urban!!

Not anymore. The times have changed, music journalists being responsable for most of the leaks. There was a time where they tried to take control of it, introducing artifacts in tracks, these could be tracked back to a given person. But probably it didn't help. Because later on, music journalists were summoned to a listening room, everyone together, to pre-listen to releases. I changed career later on, so I don't know what it's like these days. I remember the times where I could go to a record label and choose CD's to be released in the coming months.
