Never mind that I’m reachin’ my prime the second time, that’s great.

In July, Mary J. Blige and Nas will kick off their collabo tour in West Palm Beach, Florida. They will be performing a new tune together. The two have connected for a new uptempo jam called “Thriving.”

The song made its debut on Ebro Darden’s Beats 1 radio show on Wednesday (May 8th). Speaking about the tour, and how it came about, Mary said:

I was hanging out with [Nas] and Puff around New Year’s Eve, and the next day, I think maybe two days later, I got a text from him saying, ‘Do you want to go on the road together? It all made sense because we came out in 1994, both of us. And it’s the 25th anniversary of both of our albums.
