The doc, directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Vanessa Roth, explores Blige’s early days in the music industry and the making of the iconic 1994 sophomore album My Life. The film, which includes appearances from Taraji P. Henson and Alicia Keys, also includes the “Be Happy” singer-songwriter performing the album.
In the trailer, Blige says, “My Life is probably my darkest album at one of the darkest times I’ve had. Most of the times I was depressed and didn’t want to live.”
Blige, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Quincy Jones also serve as executive producers.
