Mary J. Blige has talked about the sequel to her 1994 album 'My Life'.

As reported, the singer is to release a sequel to the album called 'My Life Too: The Journey Continues' in October.

She told MTV: "It's called 'The Journey Continues' because on the first 'My Life' album, we all just were depressed and wanted to die. This one, we want to live, and we understand with living, life still comes with challenges and triumphs and good times and bad times"

"There's ballads, there's midtempos, uptempos. There's love songs, there's pain songs. There's triumph songs, there's workout songs. There's all kinda stuff!" she said. "This one is definitely what people are looking for from me, and I'm digging and I'm reaching in deep to give them what they need."

The singer, who is set to collaborate with Swizz Beats and Kanye West amongst others on the project, said that the record was about expression.

She said: "I just wanna express again, not just my own, but just people's lives around me and just celebrate it, but celebrate it in a way — not that we don't have, 'OK, sister, let me get you through this' [songs or], 'OK, here's what I'm dealing with'. And that's basically what that record is about. But I want to get it right, so my fans can be happy."
