“On the very first ‘My Life’ album, we weren’t strong at all,” Blige says, relating the differences between her 1994 sophomore album and her most recent effort, ‘My Life II: The Journey Continues,’ which was released in November 2011. “I felt like it was time for people to understand how strong we are and how far we’ve come.

“Music used to say ‘I understand. . . I know exactly what you’re going through.’ People need that. I feel like there’s a drought of that right now, and I want to consistently give that to the world.”
