In other Mary news, regarding her music, she wants to extend the self-love she’s found in her music career to the rising generation of Black women in music, Okay Player reports. She opened up with the outlet on insecurities she faced early in her career. She said, “When I was [recording] What’s the 411? I had no confidence. I didn’t know whether I was coming or going. I walked really fast, I was afraid, I was too shy – I was just too many things and I didn’t have control over it,” she said. “I have control now over what it really is, how I really look, how I really feel, where I’m going and I move slower because that’s a part of loving myself.”
She also embraces the new generation of emerging R&B artists. She said, “Right now, I love the state of R&B because of people like Ella Mai, Kiana Lede, Summer Walker, H.E.R., Jazmine [Sullivan], SZA, Ari Lennox – it’s so much hotness out there. She continued, “I’m really proud of what Anderson.Paak and Bruno Mars [have] done before they were Silk Sonic. Music is just going in the right direction, R&B is back. I remember one time I was worried about R&B, I was like ‘Uh-oh, we’re done.’ But no, the [new] generation has revived us.”
