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.Array
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.
