Mary J. Blige is hitting the road, and she’s not doing it alone.

The “I’m Going Down” singer will be embarking on her first full tour since 2017 when she ventured to Europe, Australia, and North America to promote her thirteenth studio album, Strength of a Woman.

While that tour was a solo endeavor, this summer’s offering will be more of a family affair.

The 48-year-old will be teaming up with Nas.

Mary and “The World Is Yours” rapper have been collaborating for over 20 years, going back to “Love Is All We Need” from 1997.

The pair are now set to take their partnership to the people with a 22-show tour that begins this summer.

“He’s always been the person with the message,” Mary said of Nas. “He’s just always been a great person. He’s very into what he is doing. He has a lot of integrity and his life shows that.”

The joint tour begins on the 11th of July in Florida, and will take them across the United States, culminating in a final performance in Toronto on the 10th of September.
