Mary J Blige is the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, but over her illustrious career she has shown tremendous success in everything she does. She has released 13 albums, headlined 14 tours, starred in countless movies and tv shows, and been a successful entrepreneur. Just this year, she is bringing out her own wine collection, and starring in the Aretha Franklin biopic Respect.

With all of this success over the years, her roots are with the album My Life. Released in 1994, the album became a huge hit. It went triple platinum within a year, and helped her break from a world that was strife with drug adiction, depression and abusive relationships. The album was packed with hits, with classic covers like "I'm Goin Down" and "You Bring Me Joy" and "Be Happy." The album is regularly ranked among the best albums of all time.

An album like that doesn't come around too often, and deserves to be given special recognition. That's why we're happy to announce that Mary J Blige is re-releasing My Life in an expanded edition. Slated for releease in October, the My Life re-release is going to feature some exclusive commentary from Blige about each track. Considering the personal time in her life when this album came out, we're interested to see if the commentary looks at the album in its full context or not.

On the album, she'll be including some special tracks like a remix of Mary Jane (All Night Long) featuring LL Cool J and a remix of I Love You with Smif N Wessun. We'll keep you updated as more details come out about the album.

Overall, this is a great chance to re-live an iconic moment in R&B music. It will be interesting to see how many new features the album adds, and if modern audiences will be as receptive to the audience as fans were in the 90s. Looking back on the biggest releases from the 90s, what would be another album that you would like to see re-released?
