Mary J. Blige Teases New Album

In describing her forthcoming music, Mary J. Blige says her new album will “blow everybody’s mind”.

As she puts the finishing touches on her 14th studio LP, the 50-year-old superstar singer/songwriter admitted that the new repertoire’s been inspired by her “darkest moments” that’ve ultimately led to self-acceptance, stating:

” … it’s because it’s something I had to do, and something I had to say when I was in my darkest, darkest moments in that life, to build myself up to this person that I can see and accept my nose, accept my eyes, accept my cheeks, accept all the things that I used to hate.”

Scheduled for an early 2022 release, Mary’s yet to reveal the album title, but when it comes to self-acceptance, the artist claims that she’s no longer self-conscious about the way she looks and has learned to become her “own best friend”.

As a guest on the the ‘Tamron Hall’ show, the legendary R&B chanteuse stated: “When I wake up with no hair and makeup, I’m accepting that chick that goes to the bathroom and I like her.” “I hang out with myself a lot. I’m my own best friend. Mary also addressed her divorce from manager Kendu Isaccs ( to whom she was married from 2003 thru 2018) citing “irreconcilable differences” – admitting that while she was “upset”, she “didn’t get bitter”. “I just kept moving and I didn’t get bitter. I was upset … I just let God take the wheel and do his thing because If I had done anything it would have been a disaster.”

Blige’s new music comes several months before ‘Family Affair’ hitmaker joins fellow Hip Hop music icons Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Kendrick Lamar to perform at the 2022 Super Bowl.
