Rolling Stone Magazine on Mary J. Blige's 10th UNTITLED album

March 30, 2011

Release Date TBD Summer

For her tenth album, the queen of hip-hop soul has enlisted a studio full of top R&B producers, including Jerry Wonder, Danja, Tricky Stewart, Babyface, The-Dream and Terry Lewis to craft a retro album with lots of live instrumentation and soul samples. "I'm gravitating towards the natural warmth and depth in music, the way the instruments felt when we were coming up," she says, citing Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan as inspirations. She's still recording, but among the tracks likely to make the final cut are the Jerry Wonder-produced "Feel Inside" and "Beautiful Scars," a ballad by Diane Warren.
