PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.


As recounted in a 2011 Paper cover story, Mary J. Blige's reign as the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul began when she was a 21 year-old high school dropout from Yonkers. So it's pretty apt that she would team up with Disclosure, the duo of London-adjacent brothers whose Gramminated debut, 2013's Settle, came out when younger brother Howard Lawrence was nineteen. Here, the Lawrence bros. take one of their videos from last year, draw all over it and then step back while Blige takes it to a whole new level.
