Mary J. Blige Readying ‘My Life II (Act 2)’ Album

Published: Sunday 17th Feb 2019 by Sam

Mary J. Blige may be making a splash in the acting arena, but the seasoned songbird still has music on the mind.

Currently being showered with critical acclaim for her role of Cha Cha in new Netflix series ‘The Umbrella Academy,’ the Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul is also hard at work on her 14th studio album.

Tea on the set awaits after the jump…

W reports, in a profile feature on MJB, that she’s piecing together the set – which has a title of ‘My Life II… There’s Something About Me, My Self & MaryJane (Act 2)’.

The LP follows 2017’s ‘Strength Of A Woman’ – a project released amidst her divorce from estranged husband and ex manager Kendu Isaacs. 

Based on the title, it seems the 48-year-old is re-engaging with the themes explored on 2011’s ‘My Life II…The Journey Continues’ – which itself was a sequel to Blige’s 1994 breakthrough sophomore set ‘My Life.’

With a whole host of experiences under her belt since the recording of her last album, we’re especially amped to hear what she’s been cooking up for this set.

She’s renown for singing her truth, so here’s hoping she goes “there” this go round.

    My life 1000

    Girl, that title…I hope it’s a bit more experimental. I actually liked „London sessions“ and her last song where she experimented with a bit of disco.

      Love the London Sessions too

    This is going to be about after divorce I’m sure there will be the heartbreak anthems that made Mary a household name but something tells me this album will also be a celebration of some sort. So expect some happy Mary as well.

    If she scrapped the My Life 2 part that would be a good album title. My Life 2 wasn’t a good album in my opinion whereas My Life was, so anything removed from either titles is a bonus as 1) she cannot replicate My Life, and 2) My Life two wasn’t good enough to rehash. I think that Mary should go in the direction of The Breakthrough with notes of Mary and a touch of No More Drama as they had the mature elements and songs that suited her voice

    Oh wow I really thought she had abandoned Act 2. Act 1 came out way back in 2011.

    Ok. I’m excited. Can’t wait to hear this album
