Music: My Life II: The Journey Continues

Mary J Blige burst on the music scene over twenty years ago. It’s sort of hard to believe that it’s been so long. Whats the 411 put MJB on the map but it was her My Life CD that we remember the most. Why?

Mary poured her heart and soul into this particular album. Not to say she doesn’t do the same with every record she comes out with. However, at the time you may remember that Mary was going through a tumultuous and abusive relationship with K-Ci from the group Jodeci. When Mary cried, her tears transcended into her songs. When she said “All I want is to be happy”, that’s how she was really feeling.

Recently, Blige has announced that she will be releasing My Life II: The Journey Continues. So what can we expect from the sequel to a musical masterpiece that still manages to pull on the heart strings of fans around the world. If the rumors of Mary’s failing marriage to husband Kendu Issacs have any truth to them, we may be once again taken along on a rollercoaster of emotions via melody and lyric. Hold on for the ride kiddies. MJB is back!
