Following Monday night’s presidential debate, Mary J. Blige teased a new promotional video for her upcoming television show, The 411.
In what we assume was meant to be a soulful, powerful and emotional music intro concerning the current issues facing Black communities in America, Blige serenades former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, a capella and it’s just...well...watch.
The clip wasn’t well received with Twitter, whose users openly shared their jokes, concerns or disdain.
I was looking out for a "directed by Tyler Perry" at the end of that Mary J Blige and Hilary Clinton interview ad— 2-1🇯🇲 (@Yaawdie_) September 27, 2016
This is so cringe and I'm sorry to laugh but why was Mary J Blige singing to Hilary Clinton ? 😂😂😂— Elizabeth Thornberry (@Mizz_Lizzy_Baby) September 27, 2016

Anyone who can keep a straight face while Mary J. Blige is singing at them like that deserves to be president— Nyasha (@NyashaMC) September 27, 2016
If you can get through the intro, the rest of Blige’s interview with Clinton becomes more traditional, as demonstrated in this second clip.
The 411 with Mary J. Blige, premieres September 30 featuring the full interview of Hillary Clinton. And despite what people say about the first clip, we'll definitely be tuning in.
