"Take Me as I Am"

"Enough Cryin" a song by American recording artist Mary J. Blige from her seventh studio album, The Breakthrough (2005). Written with and produced by Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, the song features Blige's alter ego, Brook Lynn, whom Mary created to give her lyrical freedom without the fear of damaging her own persona.

The song was released as the album's third single on June 26, 2006 and was her most unsuccessful release in the UK from The Breakthrough, peaking outside the UK Top 40. However, it was a commercial success in the US, peaking in the top two of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. The music video for "Enough Cryin" was shot in Los Angeles, California in March 2006 and was directed by Hype Williams.[citation needed]
