Mary J. Blige out & about in SoHo, New York City (August 5th 2009)

The paparazzi caught a glimpse of Mary J. Blige as she made her rounds in the SoHo district of New York City Wednesday (Aug 5). The R&B singer stopped and grabbed a soft-serve ice cream cone before making her way to NYC’s Da Silvano Restaurant to eat lunch with a friend.

In related news, Mary J. Blige and Drake shot the video for their single, “The One,” last weekend. Drake made it to the set just one day after re-injuring himself on stage in Camden, NJ.
