Mary J. Blige sat down with candidate, Hillary Clinton on her upcoming Beats 1 show, “The 411.”
Apple Music teased the interview with a clip of Blige singing, “American Skin (41 Shots)” by Bruce Springsteen to Clinton.
The clip was mainly perceived as humorous by social media and even received comparisons to Blige's infamous “Burger King” commercial.
The criticism reached Blige's attention, which led to her shocking response on Twitter (which is now deleted).
This is certainly a surprising duo to see, which is partially why Blige is receiving criticism. While this position would be more suitable for a politician, it’ll be interesting to see Blige take on this. Despite the laughter, it could help draw in viewers to see more from the two’s conversation.
See memes below inspired by the interview:
“The 411 with Mary J. Blige” is a callback to her legendary 1992 debut album, What’s the 411? The show is set to air Sept. 30 via Apple Music’s Beats 1.
