Mary J. Blige is one of the queens of Hip Hop. When she sings, we feel it. That’s why it was awesome to get a surprise sneak peak of her new album, “My Life II: The Journey Continues (Act 1)” ahead of its November 21st release date.

The first taste Ms. Blige gave her adoring fans came at Perez Hilton’s “One Night In New York City” event, benefiting GLSEN (the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network), after wrapping up her “Music Saved My Life” tour this fall. She graced the stage at the Hammerstein Ballroom event and began performing a beautiful new tune, accompanied by guitar and violin, singing the lyrics “you need someone to love you.” The audience was certainly moved. Since then, two more tracks have surfaced—“Mr. Wrong,” a fun Rock/R&B track done with rapper Drake, produced by Jim Jonsin and Rico Love; and “Why,” a more soulful track featuring Rick Ross with the lyrics, “why, why, why, can’t we get it right.” There are plenty of collaborations on the album, including appearances by Lil Wayne, P.Diddy and Beyonce. If these songs are any indication, “My Life II: The Journey Continues (Act 1)” will definitely be on many people’s holiday wish lists.
