19th Anniversary of Mary J. Blige’s ‘No More Drama’ single

Today marks the 19th anniversary of Mary J. Blige’s ‘No More Drama’ single release.

The music video featured cameo appearances from Mariah Carey and Diddy, and earned Mary an MTV Video Music Award for Best R&B Video.

The song samples the theme song from ‘The Young and the Restless’, and Mary makes reference to this in the lyric, “Maybe I like the stress, ’cause I was young and restless”.

The ‘Thunderpuss Remix’ of the song was a #1 hit on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart, becoming her fourth #1 on that chart at the time.

There was also a completely re-written and re-sung remix of the song which bares very little resemblance to the original, featuring Diddy and Mario Winans.
