Monica Motions To Add Mary J. Blige To ‘New Life’?

Published: Tuesday 13th Dec 2011 by Rashad

Though one time scheduled to give the Billboard 200 a double dose of ‘Life’, Monica and Mary J. Blige‘s album faceoff was postponed when the ‘So Gone’ diva rescheduled the due date of her forthcoming album ‘New Life’.  With its new February 21st release swiftly approaching, Mrs. Brown unveils that instead of a showdown, the two may be prepping a diva duet for the collection before its completion.

In a recent interview, she revealed:

“I have a couple of different people that I really like to work with, I’ve always wanted to work with R. Kelly, I’ve always wanted to work with Mary [J. Blige],” Monica admits.  I wanted to save that for last because I think it’s always good when you sit down with artists that you admire and love and play them songs and see if anything touches them.”

*******

Sure to send R&B lovers into a frenzy if it comes to pass, the addition of the aforementioned would join the album’s already star-studded credits including (the now ousted) Lil’ Kim, Rick Ross, Jermaine Dupri, Missy Elliott, and more.  Fans who are looking for more of Mo should check out her recent interview with New Music Directors after the jump.  It’s there she details what listeners can expect from her forthcoming LP:

 


Thanks MonicaSoul/NewMusicDirector!

    This is a smart move, two of R&B’s heaviest hitters guarantees a hit!

    Long hair really suits her. I’m so hype for this album 🙂

    I love the idea of her doing a tour with Brandy or Mary, in fact..I think it should be all three! Keyshia I can do without(live at least) but a Brandy, Monica and Mary tour would be awesome and would do extremely well I am sure. A night of real r&b I would love it!

    If Monica and Brandy would join a tour with Mary, they would open for her.
    Mary is the R&B Queen.

    LOL @MonicaBrown making me have to say AMEN all up in this post.
    The maturity, growth, wisdom and reality is why i’ve always followed her journey with music.

    1st it was all about the music but as the years went on it became more about her evolution from a child to now a woman.

    #teammonica
    Love HER!

    Let’s get it! Pretty sure New Life is completed already, so we can hope for R. Kelly and Mary duet on the next album.
