Queen Of R&B Mary J Blige Surprises The FADER FORT Presented By Converse Crowd

After three nights of good vibes, The FORT ended on point.

The Saturday night crowd at The FADER FORT Presented by Converse were blessed with an appearance by R&B royalty. Sporting a leather vest, Mary J Blige played eternal classics like "Real Love," plus some cuts from her new house-informed album, The London Sessions, and even her remix of Disclosure's head-buzzing "F For You." After a FORT filled with idiosyncratic voices like Kindness, Weyes Blood, and iLoveMakonnen—plus raw, precocious talents like Willow Smith—it felt like the exact right ending to have the queen of soul's iconic voice fill our little space.
