If you have been waiting patiently for Mary J. Blige to release her new album, well, wait no more. The Grammy-winning songbird has penciled in Nov. 21 as the release date for her tenth album ‘My Life II… The Journey Continues (Act I),’ reports Rolling Stone magazine (via Rap-Up).

One of the surprises that awaits fans on the collection is the return of Blige’s rap alter ego Brook Lynn, who is going to spit bars on the Rico Love-produced and written song, ‘Midnight Drive.’ If you recall, the feisty rapper made her debut on Busta Rhymes‘ energetic ‘Touch It’ remix followed by the rap ballad ‘Enough Cryin” from Blige’s ‘The Breakthrough’ album.

The ‘My Life II’ LP boasts production assists from studio mavericks Swizz Beatz, Jermaine Dupri, Jim Jonsin, the Underdogs and Jerry Wonda.

“The first ‘My Life,’ I didn’t understand why I was in so much pain,” explains Blige about her new album. “This one adds another level of understanding.” The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul recorded so many songs for the album that a follow-up is in the works. “We’re going to do ‘Act II,’ because it’s just too much good music,” she says.
