Next month, Mary J. Blige will unveil her fourteenth studio LP Good Morning Gorgeous, which will contain 13 songs and additional appearances from Anderson .Paak, DJ Khaled, Fivio Foreign, Usher and more. In addition to its upbeat title track, the project was also led by “Amazing.”
This week, Blige drops off another single from Good Morning Gorgeous titled “Rent Money,” a new collaboration alongside Dave East — the two previously worked together on the Karma 3 standout “Know How I Feel.” Produced by D’Mile, the track sees the two ready to move on from a former relationship:
“This isn’t love this is foolish, I just want back what I put into this, and then I’ll keep moving, all of my chips on the table, ’cause I never got what I came for, not leaving ’til I am stable, I spent everything on ya, spent my energy on ya, put that loyalty on ya, I ain’t got nothin’ left, I’m in over my head, now I’m barely breathing, you know you the reason, just tryna break even, you must be used to me spendin’…”
Upon its arrival, Good Morning Gorgeous will follow 2017’s Strength of a Woman, a 14-track body of work that saw assists from Kanye West, Quavo, Khaled, Missy Elliott, Prince Charlez, and KAYTRANADA. In addition to being well-received critically, that album was also a top three success on the Billboard 200 thanks to 78,000 album equivalent units sold during its first week of release.
