In between the likes of The Boys, Invincible, Borat and Without Remorse, Amazon Prime has been slowly but surely stepping up their own documentary game. One particular upcoming doc, however, has all of this writer’s interest.
On June 25 Mary J Blige will celebrate the her monumental second album, My Life, with a documentary chronicling the album’s creation. “Blige set the music world on fire with her trailblazing 1994 LP, a collection of powerful confessionals about her battles with abuse, depression and addiction that forged a profound and enduring connection with millions of fans around the globe,” says its press release. “In Oscar-winning filmmaker Vanessa Roth’s documentary the singer, producer and actress reveals the demons and blessings that inspired the record and propelled her from the soul-crushing world of New York’s housing projects to international stardom.”
As this is my favorite album from Blige, I’ll definitely be watching this. Check out a trailer for it, below.
