Mary J. Blige, the Grammy award-winning Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, has announced her plans to retire from music in the next “five or six years.” After a successful music career spanning over 30 years, Blige is looking forward to focusing on other ventures, including acting.

Blige is currently preparing for her third annual Strength of a Woman Festival and Summit, as well as her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She also has new music in the works, assuring fans that there are still fresh tunes to come before her retirement.

In a recent interview with Extra, Blige expressed her love for recording music but mentioned that she no longer feels the need to churn out new albums as frequently as before. She revealed that her upcoming album may be her last studio album, indicating a shift in her music career.

The themes of Blige’s new music continue to revolve around love in all its forms, with a focus on self-love and personal growth. Embracing the love she has for herself, Blige emphasizes the importance of finding inner happiness and stability in life.

Blige’s annual Strength of a Woman Festival and Summit will be held in New York City during Mother’s Day weekend, where she will also be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The event promises to be a celebration of Blige’s contributions to music and her legacy in the industry.
