Mary J. Blige and Nas, two power-house R&B/hip-hop artists who are no strangers to collaborating, will team up once again this summer for a co-headlining trek.
The 22-date run will kick-off in West Palm Beach, Florida at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre, followed by gigs in Jacksonville, Charlotte, Detroit, Austin, San Francisco, and Albuquerque. They’ll hit a variety of outdoor spaces like Boston’s Xfinity Center, Houston’s Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, and the St Joseph’s Health Amphitheater in Syracuse. Toronto, Ontario will close-out the tour on September 10.
The duo first collaborated back in 1997 on the hit track “Love Is All We Need” and followed with the song “Reach Out” off Nas’ 2012 record Life Is Good. Nas has since released NAS: Time Is Illmatic and Nasir. Earlier this year, he dropped the track “NY Se Mumbai” with Divine, Naezy, and Ranveer Singh. He is set to perform at a few festivals including Governors Ball in New York and Barcelona’s Primavera Sound.
Blige last released Strength of a Woman in 2017, along with tracks on the original motion picture soundtrack for Mudbound. This year, she’s slated to appear at Essence Music Festival, as well as Cincinnati Music Festival, and BET Experience.
