Mary J. Blige, Taraji P. Henson and Kerry Washington Rock Out in Apple Music Commercial [VIDEO]
What happens when you get Mary J. Blige, Taraji P. Henson and Kerry Washington in a room together? Perhaps one of the most talked about moments during this year's Emmy Awards when their 62-second TV commercial for Apple Music debuted.
Taraji and Kerry head over to Mary J.'s house and the moment they get close to the door, the Empire actress hears Slick Rick playing in the background. Visibly excited (who isn't an MC Ricky D fan?), they greet MJB and head inside to find out their good ol' friend has been looking through a collection of old mixtapes on cassette. While we're still wondering when these three powerhouses became best friends and how we can get in on that friendship, Mary shows them Apple Music.
As they take a walk down music's memory lane, Blackstreet's "No Diggity," Diddy's "It's All About the Benjamins," Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight," Snoop Dogg's "Gin and Juice" and Busta Rhymes' "Touch It (Remix)" serves as the soundtrack. The trio reminisce and rock out to the old school tracks as Mary explains how she's been able to make the playlists on her computer, which just so happens to be the latest gold MacBook Pro.
"It knows your mood. It knows your taste. It's like you have a boyfriend who makes you a mixtape in your laptop," the Scandal star says as they peruse Mary's playlist.
As the three ladies start their dance party, the TV spot ends with "Instant Boyfriend Mixtape Service" and the $9.99 subscription price per month.
If you're still on the fence about signing up for Apple Music, Taraji, Mary and Kerry might be the ladies to convince you to get a subscription. Join their dance party above.
