After the heartbreaking documentary surrounding the 25th anniversary of his magnum opus, My life, earlier this year, Mary J. Blige returns to music on her time.
His new album, with an unknown title, has been delayed several times. It was originally scheduled to arrive last winter and was subsequently pushed back for a release this month. However, the “Just Fine” frontman said the long-awaited LP is now slated for release in January 2022.
Still, to hold fans back, she revealed in a recent interview with WGN Entertainment critic Dean Richards that despite the album being delayed, three new singles will be arriving in November.
“Yes, I have new music coming this month,” she shared. “Three new singles to come and an album to come the following January. So stay tuned to the streets for November. She will also perform alongside D-Nice in two shows before Thanksgiving.
Blige spoke with Richards about his role in STARZ Power Book II: Ghost, ahead of the premiere of its second season on November 21. She plays Monet Tejada, the queen of the fiesta and mother of three children.
His 14th studio album, which has been described as having a more upbeat approach, will arrive ahead of his Pepsi Halftime Show co-headliner at Super Bowl LVI alongside Dr Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar in February 2022.
