Mary J. Blige Announces Release Date For New Album

Published: Monday 4th Apr 2011 by Trent

After being under the radar for over a year, Mary J. Blige is ready to return to the music scene. However, the Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul is gearing up to challenge her Pop music counterparts not with cliche Dance beats but with the classic sounds of Mary J.

Expected to arrive in stores on September 20th, ‘My Life II: The Journey Continues’ serves as the sequel to her iconic 1994 LP, ‘My Life’. The record will entail contributions from Johnta, Kanye West, Swizz Beatz, Danja, Stargate, Johnta Austin and others.

Check out the Colin Tilley-video for the project’s 1st single, ‘Someone To Love Me (Remix) (Ft. Diddy & Lil Wayne)’ below:

  9. Blanco Family April 4, 2011

    please work with lil kim!!! do a ” he cant love you” 2011 version!

  10. JJFAN1814 April 4, 2011

    If her first single is out now, why the f*** is she releasing the album 5 months from now??? SMH. already off to a bad start. Not saying she’s gonna flop, she always sells consistently….but still.

  11. Keesha April 4, 2011

    I LOVE her new hair too!

  12. Romelo April 4, 2011

    I personally am looking forward to hearing her next album. As the original “My Life” album remains my favorite Mary album. As well as one of my all time favorite albums. Her last two albums didnt really give me what i needed, but I still remain a loyal fan. Hopefully going back down the route of such a classic album, will put her back where she needs to be. I’m tired of these half assed singers ruling everything. MARY PLEASE BRING BACK REAL R&B! NOT R&B/POP… R&B/SOUL!!!!

  13. uknowumad April 4, 2011

    I love it, go get em Mary. @Perrylicious MJB is legendary she’ll never be a flop now go listen to your corny bubble gum pop music

  14. Keesha April 4, 2011

    “please work with lil kim!!! do a ” he cant love you” 2011 version!”

    I agree!!!

  15. d April 4, 2011

    Dam when Mary around Puff she take me back to that Old skool swagalicous Mary. i think this is different and hot. But it kinda sounds like I anit thru By keshia cole and we all know how that worked out for her.

  16. Keesha April 4, 2011

    Yaaaaassss!!!!!

  17. Topman April 4, 2011

    Hmm liking this song and video. Always been in two minds about Mary because as much as she can sing the way she lets her voice shake all over the place can annoy me sometimes. Glad she’s changed her hair though.

  18. Keesha April 4, 2011

    Regarding this song though, it’s okay. It’s not her best, but still better than most mainstream songs out today. I can’t wait to hear the rest of her new music though!!!

  19. truthis April 4, 2011

    Its alright i was looking for a slamdunk with Mary…guess i have to wait on second single then!!! September is a long time to wait guess well get 3 singles by then huh….

  20. Crunch April 4, 2011

    If the album sounds like this I’m not buying it. This s*** is whack.

  21. Beystanbish April 4, 2011

    Same ole raggedy ass Shity Stankperry stan in here hating. Wouldn’t know talent if it hit u in the booty with a d****. Smh

  22. IRememberMe April 4, 2011

    TRENT- YOU ARE TOO STUPID TO INSULT!

    SOMEONE TO LOVE ME IS “NOT” THE FIRST SINGLE FROM THE NEW ALBUM YOU DIPSHIT NOR HAS THE ALBUM TITLE BEEN CONFIRMED!!!

    THIS IS ALL JUST SPECULATION AND OF COURSE TRENT THROWING A LITTLE SOMETHING SOMETHING IN THERE TO START SOME MESS!

  23. meme April 4, 2011

    She needs to team up with diddy on this one. i dont like dude but the two of them make classic rnb music!

  24. lol April 4, 2011

    i wish she wiould retire

    she had some classics back in da day

    but know everything she comes out with sound like a welfare chick wit 17 kids wrote it

  25. dluis April 4, 2011

    This is hip hop soul !!!!!!!

    and to correct thegrapejuice this is the teaser single until the first official single this summer… anyone who knows Mary, knows she most of the time releases something for the streets and then attacks lol

    I love this song and I can already tell by the title and producers, this WILL be a great album.
    Rolling Stone said it contains a retro feel, soul samples and alot of live instruments.

  26. Who’s Cedric? April 4, 2011

    @LOL
    F****** dead! And I agree lool. Mary J just ain’t what she used to be and another this I can’t stand about her is how miserable she is, always dwelling on what happened to her earlier in her life. Move on bish.

  27. royalkev April 4, 2011

    It’s nice seeing Mary in this video, she looks younger. I am a little tired of seeing her wear puffy furs and big fedora hats. Still, she looks good! The song will have to grow on me, but the video is decent.

  28. Anon April 4, 2011

    Boring as usual when it comes to her. She needs to tend to that failing marriage. This s*** is a fail too!

  29. DUMMIES April 4, 2011

    Mary’s Last Album was considered a FLOP because it sold 332,000 First WEEK….So that goes to show you that MARY J. BLIGE is no where
    NEAR a FLOP Artist 🙂

    I like the Song…It’s Gritty….Dark….It’s HIP-HOP……Mary always sales because her Fanbase is HUGE…

    She does Music for her Older….Younger….Middle-aged….White….BLack…Straight and Gay Audience…..

    She has nothing to worry About….Maybe OTHERS….But NOT MARY 🙂

    SitAllTheWayTheFuckDown.ORG 🙂

  30. B Lamont April 4, 2011

    This is obviously not the real official single as it’s really a remix to the same song on Dirty Money’s cd, Last Train to Paris. It may get included on Mary’s final cd, but this ain’t the first single. Just a lil tease to put Mary back on the scene.

  31. TheMan4u April 4, 2011

    it makes me nervous whenever we get a sequel to a classic, it never lives up to the hype

  32. Shaquannamenesha Rolls Royce Benz in association with BET.com Type-Pah B**** To Run Yo S*** H** Before I Smack Yo Ass Jones April 4, 2011

    Why dont b****** dance anymore. Dance, loosen up those knees Mary and bring your music to life with motion, over there looking like a stiff log cabin. #RealLove

  33. dluis April 4, 2011

    @DUMMIES Thank you very much!!! No hit single and still had a nice first week
    Meanwhile b****** have 2 #1s on the chart and only push about 200k

    These artists are lucky to even see 332k in their overall sales in 2011
    MJB doesn’t need gimmicks, dancing and tricks to sell her records
    Never has and never will! She is the definition of an artist.

  34. Robier April 4, 2011

    Mary and Bey will be competition

  35. uknowumad April 4, 2011

    why do all these dumb stans of the non talented fake artist always try to throw shade at real talented artist. @ the idiot who said this sounds like keyshia cole needs to go jump out the f****** window.

  36. TheRealBabyDre April 4, 2011

    WooopWooop
    Loooove this song XD

  37. truepeace April 4, 2011

    HOT!!!!! Mary can do no wrong and I can’t wait until September 20th!

  38. lordmir April 4, 2011

    Love mary but i think original version is better than this.

  39. QUEEN BEYONCE STANN April 4, 2011

    Yay Mary Is Coming Back:)!
    Can’t Wait To Get Her Album!

    #QueenBeyonce2011

  40. RosaRubbel April 4, 2011

    Wow everything is happening pretty fast! I didn’t even know she had a single or an album out this year!
    I always had a love/hate relationship with Mary’s music. I love some of her records (‘The Breakthrough’) and on the other hand I just can’t get into other projects (‘My Life’). Her last album ‘Stronger With Each Tear’ was very weak, because there were actually more Pop songs than R&B. This song is completely different. Very very old school, that’s the type of songs which have to grow on me. I’ll see. I just want another ‘Breakthrough’!!!!

  41. MichelleWFan April 4, 2011

    THIS IS NOT HER FIRST SINGLE. THIS IS MORE LIKE A BUZZ SINGLE LIKE SHE DID FOR MJB DA MVP. SHE WILL GO HAAAAAAAAARD FOR THE OFFICIAL FIRST SINGLE. WATCH AND SEE.

    I’M SO IMPRESSED , MY HEART IS BEATING FAST. MARY J. BLIGE IS BAAAAAACK !!!!!!!

    Ps: Mary J. has never flopped. Katy Perry fans must have been smoking too much candy canes and coton candy… Get your facts together.

  42. That FLOP Juice April 4, 2011

    It is NOT THE FIRST SINGLE.

    Read the official statement… this blog is getting so FLOP BLOG

    On January 4, 2011 on Hot 97, Angie Martinez premiered a new version of Diddy-Dirty Money’s “Someone to Love Me”. The remix, titled “Somebody to Love Me” (Naked), features new vocals from Blige and Lil Wayne.[38]The song was released as an iTunes digital download single on March 29, 2011 and serves as a TEASER UNTIL THE OFFICIAL FIRST SINGLE from the album. The video for the song was directed by Colin Tilley. [39]

  43. KaVion April 4, 2011

    She’s amazing. I love how she embraces the new artists of today while still being real and making the music she loves. Can’t wait for the album.

    I’m confused about this single though. I remember watching the video for the original song a while ago and Dawn/Kalenna were singing the chorus, Mary J was nowhere to be found. She wasn’t even credited as a vocalist. Is this really her song?

  44. KaVion April 4, 2011

    @THAT FLOP JUICE
    Thank you! I was wondering the same thing! Trent & Sam have been releasing quite a bit of false information lately.

  45. Kendra April 4, 2011

    I like it, but its not her first single and MJB is that b****! Diddy irks the hell out of me but I have to admit him and Mary are a very nice match up. can’t wait to hear the album the last two didn’t do it for me but if she’s going back to the old Mary it should be good.

    OAN Colin Tilley is EVERYWHERE I kno he’s glad he met and worked with Chris Brown cause he directing everybody videos now. I aint mad at him he has a creative eye so I like.

  46. D.Strock April 4, 2011

    She lookin goooood. Not sure about the song though. Never really a fan of Diddy.

  47. MichelleWFan April 4, 2011

    So many Beyonce stans show love to Mary J. … Wow thanks for once !

  48. deman April 4, 2011

    why would she put diddy on the 1st single or teaser ??? beyond me and this song is tanking on itunes

  49. ThatBoyLuke (AKA FUTURESTAR) April 4, 2011

    PLEASE, i’m not even a Katy Perry stan/fan but we shouldn’t judge them all by @Perrylicious’s crazy ass standards, this b**** know 3 words… Kate, Perry and FLOP.

    Anyway i like this song, Mary looks younger with her hair like that and the bridge part is takin me back 😀 shame i can’t stand Lil Wang and Diddi? … i’ll give her a pass on him coz he seemed to take her back to the good ol days lol

    Yes she better come hard with this album and the lead single had better not be annother attempt to rehash “Be without you” or i’ll be pissed…

  50. NUNYA April 4, 2011

    Mary ish SHITTING on these so called musical h***,LOL
    Mary chamge with every cd. Cant say the same for majority of the females. This is 20 plus years strong and not stopping for NO ONE.

  51. BENJAMIN April 4, 2011

    Looks like she is taking in retro, mixing the hip hop back in her music. Don’t know why she is doing this 5 months in advance though. But I like the concept. Sidebar: I like those leather jackets by Diddy and Wayne, especially the one with the red collar worn by Wayne.

  52. WTF?? April 4, 2011

    From what I hear, this is the buzz single..

  53. Deveal2014 April 4, 2011

    I f****** love it Mary j Blige looks amazing OMG!!!!!!!!11 Tell all these fake a** pop acts to take dirt naps the f****** epic Queen of Soul is back and I already know the album is f****** fiya I cannot wait 2 hear it . Imo she the only artist that can make good albums back 2 back 2 back like all of her s*** iz claasics and she has actual talent . but becuze her boobs and p**** aint hanging out and she aint throw chairs threw windows or do a dance routine it may get over looked lmao.

  54. Pinkcookiegoodies April 5, 2011

    Yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

  55. V April 5, 2011

    This is a Dirty Money song. It’s not hers, she’s just featured on the remix : /

  56. BF April 5, 2011

    @ MICHELLE OF COURSE BEY IS NO COMP, & THE TRICKS WHO STAN 4 HER KNOW WHO THE REAL QUEEN IS QUEEN MARY

  57. MichelleWFan April 5, 2011

    @BF I hear you !!! HAHAHAAH

  58. Nufsed April 6, 2011

    Mary can NEVER flop! I laugh at that statement. A lot of artist cant even think about selling over 300,000 in a first week (Chris Brown to name a few) , but its the same idiots saying she will flop, that is also saying Chris Brown, (or Rhianna,Keyshia Cole,Keri Hilson, etc) is the ish! I dont get it! What makes an artist HOTT today? Your personal preference, record sales, or music awards? Just like your own artist, and the one’s you dont like leave off your tongue! Get it MARY! You the baddest, thats why they stay talking about you!

  59. 007 April 7, 2011

    THIS IS NOT HER FIRST SINGLE. THIS IS MORE LIKE A TEASER LIKE SHE DID FOR MJB DA MVP,STRONGER AND HOOK SHE BRING THE TEASER OUT JUST TO LET EVERYONE KNOW SHE WORKING ON HER CD AND LET EVERY ONE KNOW IAM BACK B**** SO LOOK OUT. I HEAR 4 SONG THAT GOING TO BE ON THE CD IT SOUND LIKE SHE TAKING US BACK TO THE 90S WITH LIL TODAYS BEAT TO IT THE SONGS SOUND GOOD NAME OF THE CD MY LIFE II JOURNEY CONTINUES DONT SHE MAY CHANGE IT CAUSE THE LAST TWO CD WAS CALL THAT AND SHE CHANGE IT THE LAST MIN HER UK CD ALL WAYS HAVE 2 OR 3 FAST SONG ON THE CD LIKE I CANT WAIT AND FEVER

  60. Neka July 20, 2011

    This song is hot for real, and the video is hot as well. Mary always giving it to the crowd, people can say what they want it wil be a hit, how about the album will be a hit and I will be one of the first in NC to purchase the album. LOL Mary is an all time favorite not just with the older crowd but the younger as well. My daughter is 15 and she loves Mary J. Blije, keeping it positive is the way. Mary still has some Thug in her and that is what I like, GIVE IT TO’EM MARY!!!!! CAN’T WAIT FOR THE CD TO COME OUT!!!! WOOOOOO

  61. cyreio September 12, 2011

    Mary is the ultimate, who has nothing to prove.can’t. Wait for the album.Mary fan for15yr’s this. Super talented icon can do no wrong. Mary all the way!!!!!!!
