When Drew Barrymore asked what it’s like to be best friends with Mary J. Blige, Remy Ma said the singer exceeded her expectations and that their bond is “so real” that their get-togethers frequently end in tears.
“Not only is she everything that I thought she would be, like, she’s like past that,” Remy stated as her closest friend moved in for an embrace. “Oh, Remy, I love you too,” Mary replied. “You know how much I love you.”
“You don’t just see,” Remy Ma said of Mary J. Blige, “you feel her,” and she opened up about what the singing icon means to her and others. She spoke on her legacy, stating, “I don’t even know if she’s aware of how many people that she touched.
“My daughter’s 4-year-old, I can’t, I don’t even know how she latched onto Mary like that,” Remy added. “One day, she had this song called ‘Amazing,’ and she kept playing it over and over, and I was like, ‘How do you know this song?'” ‘Yeah, that’s Mary,’ she says.

Among the topics discussed on the show was Mary’s new children’s book, “Mary Can!” which empowers young children to pursue their dreams. Remy used the book to demonstrate Mary’s “generational impact,” explaining how it promotes her daughter’s “big dreams.”
“Those are the things we need to instill in the youth,” Remy stated as he saluted Mary J. Blige.
“When people see us as celebrities go through hell on television, it’s public,” Mary explained when asked about her impact on younger women. “Our divorce is public. Our falls are public, as are our embarrassments, and then they see us come through. That’s the yes. That is the “Yes you can,” or “If I can do it, you can do it.”
