“My Life is probably my darkest album at one of the darkest times I’ve had,” Blige admits in the trailer. “Most of the time I was just depressed and didn’t want to live. I had it all inside and I was able to sing it and write it, and I didn’t know that so many people felt the same way.” She also added.
We also hear from executive producer, Diddy, who says “Nobody sounds like her,” as well as Blige’s I Can Do Bad All By Myself co-star Taraji P. Henson. She added that Blige “made it okay for people to say it’s alright to be me.”
The official synopsis reveals that viewers will see Blige speak about “the demons and blessings” behind the album’s songs.
The documentary is set for June 25, 2021 on Amazon Prime.
