The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul is holding down the throne. Mary J. Blige returns on her fourteenth album Good Morning Gorgeous which comes just in time for Sunday’s Super Bowl Halftime Show. 13- track project has appearances from Anderson .Paak (“Here with Me”), Fivio Foreign (“On Top”), Dave East (“Rent Money” ), DJ Khaled (“Amazing”), and Usher (“Need Love”).
Blige’s first album on 300 Entertainment, Good Morning Gorgeous joint release between her Mary Jane Productions company. In Blige’s interview with Elle last month, Blige spoke about the self-care intention behind her new album.
“During Mudbound and when I was married, I was feeling so low. I had to pay myself the highest compliments, even if I didn’t believe it, just so I could build myself up,” Blige said. “I would do it in the morning, because that’s the time when your hair is not done and you don’t have on makeup. You’re just kind of dealing with yourself for real.” She still wakes up and recites the same words: “Good morning, Gorgeous. I love you. I got you. I need you.”
During a recent interview on The Cruz Show, MJB called her Superbowl Halftime Show performance “the opportunity of a lifetime” and revealed that halftime performances are unpaid.
“Listen, you’re gonna be paid for the rest of your life off of this,” she said. “People are gonna be knocking at your doors. They don’t have to pay me, but if they was paying it would be a lot of money.”
