"No More Drama" by Mary J. Blige

While in the past the video for No More Drama had been unavailable to me for embedding - forcing me to rely on an entirely adequate live performance in lieu of it in 2009 - on this day in 2010 I received a pleasant surprise... As I was engaged in my usual hunting and gathering for the day's posts there, in all her diva glory, was Mary J. Blige and the embed code for her very moving video!

The title track of Blige's 2001 fifth album No More Drama, produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, was the second single from the album, and climbed charts around the world; featuring a sample of Nadia's Theme (more popularly known as the theme to the soap opera The Young and the Restless), the song's message is one which is eagerly embraced by the Pop Culture Institute, the majority of whose drama involves finding and keeping videos posted despite the constant depredation on them by various ill-willed record labels.
