Fly Song of The Day: Vina Mills – “Give It 2 U” [New Music]

Electric Soul Entertainer, Vina Mills, is back with a 90’s inspired feel-good banger entitled “Give It 2 U,” produced by Atlanta’s own Champion Beats and C Sharp.
Taking a chapter out of the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul Mary J. Blige‘s playbook, Mills gives a modern rendition of the cult classic All Night Long, originally introduced by the Mary Jane Girls.

The featured song is from the p.o.v of a strong woman who confidently knows that she is the ultimate package, being true wifey goals. Built upon a solid foundation, freely expressing her sensuality, she will not settle for less as she searches for that special guy to give her all to.

Mary J. Blige Debuts New Single “Thick Of It”


On the path of releasing her frustrations behind the abrupt ending of her 12-year marriage to Kendu Issacs, Mary J. Blige unleashes a new song entitled “Thick Of It.” The official single was co-penned by artist-songwriter Jazmine Sullivan.

In the song, Mary details her feelings saying:

And I be damned if all these years I let you diss me babe
I was there when no one wanted to stay with you baby
You know I deserve more than this
I do

Mary recently told WDAS 105.3 FM:

“If you know me, you know what I’m dealing with right now. The “Thick of It” is the divorce and all this stuff that’s going on right now. It’s the heaviness of it and the whole thing…that’s where I am. I’m in the middle of a divorce and it doesn’t feel good. It feels terrible, but I have strength to get through and I get through by any means necessary.”

Mary is now working on her upcoming album Strength of a Woman, which is the follow-up to the 2014 project London Sessions. Also, Blige has been reaching out into other ventures and now has a new Apple Music program titled The 411 where she recently interviewed Hillary Clinton.

“Everyone was calling on us, like, we need that song again.”

The remake was sparked by the tragic events that have taken place here and abroad. From the terrorist attacks in Paris, Belgium, and Turkey; the deaths of Philando Castille, and Alton Sterling at the hands of police; to the attacks on law enforcement in Dallas; and the Orlando mass shooting, the group felt it was a message the world desperately needed to hear.

The group hopes the record will resonate with Millennials like it did with the masses back in 2003. explains,

“Millennials are powerful. I don’t think they realize just how powerful they are. I hope this song inspires the millennials to go all out, scream from the tallest mountain, care like your freedom depends on it. Pay attention like that is at risk.”

The song is set to debut later on today. Until then check out a clip of, Apl.De.Ap and Taboo discussing with ATTN: what inspired the original and what led them to create a remake.
