A Twitter user mashed together footage of Mary J. Blige dancing over Solange's "Cranes in the Sky", off her new, wonderful album A Seat at the Table, casually dropping the video we didn't even know we needed until we saw it.

The video shows Blige dancing through the years, and synched up to Solange's melancholy, heavenly opus, it makes for a mashup forged in the heavens.

There's also an extended version of the video in case you want more (and yes, you do want more).
