Mary J. Blige Hits The Studio With Kehlani

Published: Saturday 23rd Dec 2017 by Sam

Mary J. Blige may have shown the ‘Strength Of A Woman’ this year on her latest album, but she’s already back in the lab. And with an exciting collaborator – Kehlani.

Full story below…

The 22-year-old took to Instagram to the snap of herself in the studio with MJB.

Clearly elated to be working with the Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul, the ‘Distraction’ singer captioned the pic:

of the same cloth. finally. ??

The pairing comes at an interesting juncture for both ladies.

Riding the wave of momentum drummed up by debut ‘SweetSexySavage,’ Kehlani has seen her profile soar in recent months thanks to a series of collabs – including a spot on Eminem‘s ‘Revival’ album. A trajectory that looks set to continue with this venture.

As for Mary, she’s wasting no time moving on to newness musically. ‘Strength’ aptly had a few strong songs on it, but ultimately didn’t deliver commercially. Perhaps this teaming will yield the winning bops she’s angling for.

The session took place one week after the legend was nominated for a Best Supporting Actres award at the 2018 Golden Globes for her role in ‘Mudbound.’

    Funny how this blog can be so bias with certain artists opposed to others. The fact is Mary J Blige last 3 eras have not lived up to her status commercially My life 2 era, The London sessions era,
    The strength of a woman era on the MJB scale and in general all those eras were flops. But that take away from the legacy that Mary has already cemented.

    does not take away from the legacy Mary has already cemented.

    Let’s all be crystal clear. REAL R&B music isn’t selling like it used to.. except from non-black artist like Bruno and that white people watered down R&B music that The Weeknd do. But Mary J Blige’s “Strength of a Woman album was successful enough. It physically sold 170k ( not including streams) in 2017. More than Trey Songz.. Sza .. and Kehlani did physically.
    Mary J has been in the game 26 damn years and sold 50 million albums. and still sellout tours, at her almost 47 year old age. GIVE HER A DAMN BREAK !! She has nothing to prove anymore!!! (musically)
    That’s why she is diving into acting in movies and producing TV projects. It’s called REINVENTION baby!!!

      My thoughts exactly especially when streaming seems to be the head turner for most of today’s acts!!

    Mary still gives her all and performs live on stage and she doesn’t have a diva heir when u give diva teas u can’t f*** up on stage

    Mary has the best selling (170K) album released by a black woman, this year. The second best selling album by a black woman, this year, Beyonce’s is #1. Strength of a Woman has over 55 million streams. Also, “My Life 2” sold over 750,000 copies. Are those really flops? – Y’all underestimate Mary too much. It’s a shame, because y’all kiss non-talent a** all damn day.

      They stay in Ciara’s ass and she hasn’t had a certified album in over a DECADE!!!! MJB is Hip Hop/R&B/Soul royalty. She never has to sell another album in her life.

        Doesn’t matter matter i bet is the only platinum single released by a woman to go plat in 2015

        I rather an artist sell 200k off their songwriting they own than 600k off streams and a million Samsung downloads

        I don’t care about that one “platinum” single from two years ago. Ciara released like four or five flop albums back-to-back. Mary has eleven certified albums from 1992-2013.

    I hope she collaborates with Keyshia Cole, Monica & K. Michelle in the future.
