Mary J. Blige turned back the dial with her new spread on Vibe magazine’s February/March issue.

The "Queen of Hip-Hop Soul," discussed the how she felt about the R&B game in the magazine, where Beyonce and Rihanna are dominating at the moment.

“Maybe in 2012, in the middle, I was like, “What is going on? What is this?” Things got worse before they got better. I think things are going in the right direction. I am so proud of what Rihanna is doing.”

Yet females weren’t the only thing that she was asked about. She was also content about the direction Drake is taking the genre as well.

Drake is amazing," she said.

"He is an amazing writer: great songs, great melodies. And Kendrick Lamar has a classic album right now. Classic. It’s like The Chronic. I’m not saying it is The Chronic. But you know how that album felt like a movie, with a beginning, middle and an end? His album has that same thing. I also love Bruno Mars. They need to take him seriously. He. Is. A. Problem. And Miguel is amazing. His voice; his writing. All of his songs are beautiful. He is pure inspiration.”

During the interview she also discussed her previous album covers, her happiness, and where she is at in her life today.
