After wowing fans with her recent Super Bowl halftime show performance, Mary J. Blige sat down with Good Morning America to discuss her latest album.
The nine time Grammy Award-winning singer, 51, released her 14th studio album titled Good Morning Gorgeous on Feb 11.
The No More Drama hitmaker revealed the meaning of the title, saying: ‘It’s a positive affirmation I had to speak over myself when I was in a really dark situation.’

She went on to add, ‘I had to learn how to love myself out of a negative place. I learned that positive words – just speak positive words over yourself – you manifest positive things in your life.’
‘And I started to do it, and it started to work. And before you know it I was all the way out of that negative situation, and Good Morning Gorgeous is here,’ she said.
The singer looked stunning in a two-piece yellow suit, which she accessorized with large gold hoops and a bold necklace with the letter M.

The songwriter and actress also revealed that she’s already working on album number 15 and collaborating with rapper and record producer Dr. Dre, 57.
‘We discussed it during Super Bowl press and it’s something I always wanted to do, and he said he always wanted to do this. We found ourselves discovering music after the Super Bowl together, and what we want to do, and we’re all over it. It’s happening,’ she shared.
Dr. Dre also chose Family Affair and No More Drama as two songs from Mary’s catalog that he wanted featured during the halftime show.
‘When he told me what he chose I was like “Absolutely” because I mean I would have chosen No More Drama because of the climate, you know, just where we are in the world and how everybody’s feeling, you know, with COVID and masks and all that,’ she said.

‘That’s how I choose songs and that’s how I choose songs even for my albums. Just, what’s going on in the world? What’s going on with me?’ the hitmaker added.
Elsewhere in the conversation she touched on the spectacular performance – which aside from her and Dre also featured Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent and Anderson Paak.
‘It was so much fun. Professional – because we had to get the job done, we had to rehearse – but it was just unreal, it was too much fun,’ she said.
