Mary J Blige and Nas have teamed up to announce a co-headlining tour this summer, that spans 22 stops in North America and begins in July.
The ‘Love Is All We Need’ collaborators’ first stop on tour is Coral Sky Amphitheatre at the South Florida Fairgrounds on 11 July, followed by dates in Atlanta, Charlotte, Houston, Dallas, Boston, Toronto and more
The R&B/hip-hop duo have worked together in the 90s and more recently paired up on the song ‘Reach Out’, off Nas’ 2012 album, Life Is Good.
Both artists have been active in recent years with Nas dropping his LP, Nasir last year and Blige released her 13th studio album, Strength of a Woman, in 2017.
Blige has also been busy in Hollywood with more acting projects as of late, earning her first Oscar nomination for her starring role in the Netflix drama Mudbound last year and more recently, with an appearance in the Netflix superhero series, The Umbrella Academy.
The Queen of hip-hop soul is also scheduled to play the BET Experience concert in Los Angeles on 20 June.
Tickets for the joint tour go on sale this Friday, 19 April.
