Truly great sequels take time. If the first go-around left an impact on its audience, then an artist damn well better be sure that part two lives up to the standards. Returning to where her 1994 sophomore LP, My Life, left off, Mary J. Blige plans to continue the story and theme 17 years later with My Life II: The Journey Continues due for release on September 20th, reports Billboard. No word yet on a tracklist or cover art, but the video for the album’s first single, “Someone to Love Me (Naked)” featuring Diddy and Lil Wayne, recently leaked and is ready for consumption above. As always, stay tuned for album news and updates as they’re announced.
