Two of the biggest voices in music are coming together. Mary J. Blige and Beyoncé have recorded a duet for Mary’s 10th studio album.
The song, entitled “Loving a Woman,” will appear on My Life II… The Journey Continues (Act I), Rap-Up.com has learned. The R&B divas have remained fans and friends throughout the years, but this marks their first major collaboration.
Beyoncé isn’t the only guest on the sequel to Mary’s My Life. The highly-anticipated project is set to feature collaborations with Nas and Rick Ross, and production from Danja, Jerry Wonda, Stargate, and Swizz Beatz, among others.
