All Hail Queen Mary!
Indeed, the 20 illustrious years of Mary J. Blige‘s career have seen her rise through the ranks to the status she enjoys today – music royalty.
And with the prime driver of this being the warts and all sharing of her life (with her ever-identifying audience), it’s apt that Blige is on the brink of releasing a new album titled ‘My Life II: The Journey Continues’. A sequel of sorts to 1994′s ‘My Life’, this outing sees the Grammy winner in an altogether different space and place.
In one of her only UK interviews this year, the Urban icon talks to That Grape Juice about the LP, her struggles, wanting to commit suicide, collaborating with Beyonce, her thoughts on the “new breed” of R&B females, coaching on The Voice (UK), her next album, and a so much more!
As ever, we ask the questions others won’t. And answer them, a candid, Mary does.
‘My Life II: The Journey Continues (Act I)’ arrives in stores globally on November 21st
