Beyoncé blew stans minds all over the globe when she dropped her super secret album in December 2013…
But there are plenty of other divas that should be monopolizing on what we're calling THE BEYONCÉ AFFECT—meaning, they need to be releasing new music on the web with no promotion!
Apple’s music chief Robert Kondrk agrees, and has been pressuring major labels for releases similar to Bey's, in an attempt to amp up slowing download sales!
While there aren't many musicians that could have Yoncé's fire-like success, we have a few ideas about who could make the short list!!!
Disclosure's F For You was great when they first released it, but when the British dance act got Mary J. Blige to record some vocals for the single's commercial release….
She took it to a whole other level!!!!
This is the first breakout official (according to us) gay club ANTHEM of 2014!!!!
Check it out above!

Oh, no!! This is AWFUL!!!!
Mary J. Blige's father was stabbed in the neck this morning and now he's in critical condition!
The horrible incident occurred near Battle Creek, MI after an argument escalated between Thomas Blige and his girlfriend!
According to his roommate, Mary's 63-year-old father was studying for a college course this morning when he was disrupted by a loud hissing sound coming from outside!
They went to investigate and what they found was Mr. Blige's ex-gf slashing the tires of his truck!!!! Then the two of them argued for a bit outside and, according to the roommate, that's when she stabbed him in the neck!
Wowzer! And here we were thinking Mary J. Blige amazing vocals were her greatest asset!!
The 42-year-old singer recently graced the cover of Shape magazine, and we can definitely see why she was chosen as she flaunts her flawless figure and shows off her incredibly toned abs!!
Mary opened up about her fitness and said she couldn't be happier with the shape she is:
Poor Mary J. Blige couldn’t remember all of her favorite things!
The R&B legend was performing live at The Grove in El Lay during their annual Hollywood Holidays concert. But it took her THREE tries to get through the song My Favorite Things before she finally got all of the lyrics right!
As far as Christmas carols go though, that one is a TOTAL tongue twister so we can see why she’d have some trouble!
You can see in the video above that Mary did have a teleprompter scrolling for her to follow along with, but she still just couldn’t keep up with the song’s fast tempo.
Third time was a charm though and the fans in the crowd kept cheering her on, no matter how many attempts it took to get it right!
We know for sure that one of our favorite things is Mary’s voice!
Make sure you practice, practice, PRACTICE this tune, Carrie Underwood! She’ll be singing it live as well during NBC’s Sound of Music special next month!
No rain! But maybe some fake snow!
Mary J. Blige secured her position on Santa’s nice list as she joined Jewel at the Christmas Tree Lighting Spectacular, held at The Grove.
The R&B songstress was chicly dressed in a black and white jumpsuit that she accented with a skinny belt at her waist.
Gold earrings, her sparkling timepiece, and simple black heels rounded out her polished look.
And her blonde locks? Flawless!!
Keep rockin’ that smile Mary, cause you owned this outfit!

The World Series is officially upon us people!
The St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox were set to square off last night in Game 1 to decide who reigns supreme in the baseball world!
But before the Fall classic officially began, they decided to have Mary J. Blige step up to the plate and sing the National Anthem!
Not surprisingly, the soul singer absolutely knocked it out of the park and even had a perfectly-timed pause for the patriotic flyover!!
Also, the Red Sox happened to win last night in an absolute blowout over the Cards, so who knows? Maybe they'll ask her to come back to Fenway to sing again tonight!
Ch-ch-check out her amazing performance …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
