    All the times that I hated myself
    All the times that I wanted to be someone else
    All the times that I should've been gentle with me
    All the times that I should've been careful with me
    Why did I hate myself?

    So intensely Lord, help me I wake up every morning and tell myself "Good morning gorgeous"

    It is a message of self-love that rings true, particularly during the challenging time that is 2021, and, as always, Mary J. Blige sings it with conviction. Check out "Good Morning Gorgeous" below, and welcome Mary J. back to SoulTracks.
