Mary J. Blige is making significant moves in the 25th anniversary year of her triumphant and lucrative career. This time it’s in form of a first-look television deal with the global conglomerate Lionsgate.

The Grammy Award-winner will develop and produce TV series through her new company Blue Butterfly Productions. The agreement also gives Blige the chance to create content across Lionsgate’s numerous platforms.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Lionsgate,” the singer/actress said Wednesday in a statement. “They are incredible collaborators and have been natural partners from when we first started talking. I can’t wait to bring all of our projects to life.”

“Mary is a very talented artist, fearless visionary and an incredible human being. We’re delighted to be working with someone with such a powerful and impactful creative voice,”
Lionsgate Television Group Chairman Kevin Beggs stated.

He continued saying, “Every art she touches blossoms, and we’re humbled she’s chosen us as her home. We look forward to all the exciting new content, Mary, and her Blue Butterfly banner will bring to our television slate and Lionsgate 360 orbit.”

Blige is one of many new additions to the Lionsgate family. Common, Courtney Kemp, Jonathan Levine and others have signed a pact with the entity this year.



Mary J. Blige is set to go on The Royalty Tour in July with Hip Hop icon Nas. She gave fans a preview at the 2019 BET Awards after receiving the BET Lifetime Achievement Award with a 20-minute set. The performance was praised and celebrated by many in the industry.

It has been a while since I heard her name, damn. Glad to see she is still going good and has things going on for her. I know she kept releasing music but it got buried by the talentless bunch of ladies that mainstream music listeners seem to love.

Me and a buddy were just talking about her. We were trying to figure out who sings a song and it was her. She had some solid jams back in the day. Glad to see her on the up and up still for sure.

Has she been rocking that blonde hair for a while now? I don't remember her hair being that light back in the day. I could be wrong but she don't look the same anymore.
