Mary J. Blige & Nas Release "Thriving" Single Ahead Of Tour

Mary J. Blige has reunited with longtime collaborator Nas for a new single titled “Thriving.” The track samples Love Unlimited’s “Under the Influence of Love,” which has been used for 90s rap hits such as Pras’ “Ghetto Supastar” and Black Rob’s “I Dare You.”

The Queen of Hip Hop Soul debuted the Nas-assisted track and discussed their upcoming tour on Wednesday’s episode (May 8) of Ebro Darden’s Beats 1 radio show.

“I was hanging out with [Nas] and Puff around New Year’s Eve, and the next day, I think maybe two days later, I got a text from him saying, ‘Do you want to go on the road together?’” Blige told Darden. “It all made sense because we came out in 1994, both of us. And it’s the 25th anniversary of both of our albums.”

MJB and Nas are scheduled to hit the road together this July. The two will be performing throughout the summer before wrapping up their joint shows in September.
