A new Mary J. Blige era is upon us. The legendary R&B singer has announced has announced not one, but two new singles: â€œGood Morning Gorgeousâ€ and â€œAmazingâ€ featuring DJ Khaled. Both tracks are set to release this Friday, Dec. 3.
â€œGood Morning Gorgeousâ€ and â€œAmazingâ€ are expected to appear on Bligeâ€™s upcoming 14th studio album, which is slated to release in early 2022.
In a recent interview with Tamron Hall, Blige hinted that fans can expect more songs that cover self-confidence and self-love.â€
Blige told Hall, â€œIâ€™m not cocky. Iâ€™m not arrogant. But I earned the right to say some things. I earned the right to say, â€˜I feel amazing.’â€
She added, â€œThe reason why I said I feel amazing is not because every day is a great day and I always wake up feeling â€” like this. Itâ€™s because when I wake up with no hair and makeup, Iâ€™m accepting that chick who goes to the bathroom. I like her. I hang out with myself a lot. Iâ€™m my own best friendâ€¦thatâ€™s why itâ€™s cool.â€
Bligeâ€™s upcoming album will follow Bligeâ€™s 2017 LP, Strength of a Woman. The album included Bligeâ€™s hit single â€œThick of It,â€ which was co-written by Jazmine Sullivan. The song made a strong impact at radio, topping the R&B radio chart in just four weeks.
On Feb. 13, 2022, Blige will grace the SoFi Stadium stage in Inglewood, California, to perform at the 2022 Super Bowl Halftime Show. She will be joined by Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem.
