Mary J. Blige is back to take her throne.
The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul has officially announced that her 15th studio album, Good morning, lovely, will arrive on February 11, 2022.
On Friday she released the first two singles “Good Morning Gorgeous” and “Amazing” with DJ Khaled on her newly founded label Mary Jane Productions in collaboration with 300 Entertainment.
“Good Morning Gorgeous” includes production and writing by D’Mile, HER, Lucky Daye and Tiara Thomas, while “Amazing” was produced by DJ Khaled, STREETRUNNER and Tarik Azzouz.
“Working on this new album was so much fun,” said Blige. “I’m happy that my fans are hearing these first two songs to give them a taste of what’s to come. I am grateful to all of my employees and partners who have accompanied me through this process, and even more grateful to my fans, who I hope will have a lot of fun with this new music. ”
In a recent interview with Tamron Hall, she added, “Wait to hear it, it will blow everyone away. And it’s because it’s something I had to do and something I had to say in my darkest, darkest moments in this life, to build myself up to that person that I can see and accept my nose, accept my eyes , accept my cheeks, accept all the things I used to hate. “
Two days after the album was released, the R&B icon will join Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar perform at the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show at SoFi Stadium in LA.
Good morning, lovely follows Mary’s 2017 album Strength of a woman.
