SEATTLE, Washington — The Queen of hip-hop and r&b infusion Mary J. Blige is revisiting her most influential work in the Vanessa Roth-directed documentary Mary J. Blige’s My Life for Amazon Prime Video.
“My Life is probably my darkest album at one of the darkest times I’ve had,” Blige says in the trailer. “Most of the times I was just depressed and didn’t want to live.”
The 82-minute film which is executive produced Sean “Diddy” Combs explores the “untold story” behind the groundbreaking album, along with the demons and blessings that inspired the record and earned her millions of fans worldwide. The R&B icon also celebrates the 25th anniversary by performing My Life live for the first time.
The documentary also features commentary from friends including Diddy, Taraji P. Henson, and Alicia Keys, while Quincy Jones serves as executive music producer.
Mary J. Blige’s My Life premieres June 25 on Amazon Prime Video.
