Legendary singer Mary J. Blige, one of the first names that come to mind when Hip Hop is mentioned, takes the lead role in 50 Cent’s popular TV series Power Book II: Ghost. Performing at the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show, Mary released her 14th studio album.
On Wednesday, March 2, Lifetime announced that they have released a new movie called “Real Love.” The movie is based on Mary’s hit single “Real Love” from 1992.
Let’s talk about the movie about the drama about aging. We’re talking about a movie where she follows an intellectual student named Kendra, who started her college career in New York and met her film class partner, Ben, and eventually changed her world. They experience dozens of problems that they experience in the movie. However, they both fall in love and learn what love is.
Sonja Warfield and Rachel Ingram are writing the script. Mary is the executive producer.

My passions for acting and music now include developing diverse stories with music as the backdrop.”
