Not Gon’ Cry – Mary J. Blige
“Not Gon’ Cry,” is from the Waiting to Exhale movie soundtrack and it was written and produced by Babyface. The number one single was perfect for Mary J. Blige because when the Queen sings, she does it with so much fervor. At the time, Mary’s life was similar to Bernadine in the film because she was in a troublesome relationship with K-Ci Hailey. The song also tells a story of Bernadine and her husband ending their marriage after 11 years. 20 years later, it’s still a song that women can listen to when they’re sick and tired of crying over a man.
