A pair of clips teasing Blige's interview with Hillary Clinton on her upcoming Apple Music show "The 411" isn't winning over social media users. The teaser featuring Blige crooning Bruce Springsteen's "American Skin (41 Shots)" before clasping hands with Clinton was mocked online quickly after it was posted Tuesday, Sept. 27 by Apple.(Photo by Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP, File)

“I wanted to incorporate the song in the show because the lyrics resonated with me so deeply and so heavily because of all the shootings and police brutality and I never got a chance to say anything,” Blige said. “I’m a singer first …so that’s the only way I can express myself and …the only way I can get that reaction from (Hillary) is to sing it.”
