Mary J. Blige talks about the album:

“I started out with this concept of growing pains because that’s how I was feeling during the (2007) Grammy’s: “Am I good enough for this; do I really deserve all this in my life?” But something in my head said, “Yes, you are. Now you’re forced to rapidly grow up in this area in order to achieve and get the things you want”.

About her collaborations with Tricky Stewart, the Dream and Jazze Pha on “Just Fine”:

“It wasn’t presented to me as a complete song initially,” Blige she remembered. “They began to play this keyboard part and then the drums. Then they explained to me, ‘We know what you’re used to, but you’ll be a part of a whole other party if you go with this record that we’re about to make.’ I went back to my room and when I came back the next day, they had the whole song.

Her feelings about “Just fine”

“When I heard the beat, I was like, OK, this is hot. This is making my body move, and I’m having fun,’” she continued. “It sounded like something that needed to be more uplifting than, “Woe is me.” (Laughs) So I tried to make the song about how I appreciate the good days I do have and where I’m at right now, even though I still have challenges.”
