"East Coast Swag….. #TheDefiantOnes" 


The post has since its upload garnered over 110,000 like and a few thousand comments adorning the women. 

As seen from the comments, one person described the women as "queens," while another asked for a musical collaboration between Blige and Monica. 

Interestingly, the stunning post from Blige comes barely a few days after Amazon Studios announced that she's one of the executive producers of an upcoming documentary on her life.


This is according to THE MEDIA HQ, who quoted that the forthcoming documentary is a "personal and unprecedented" account of the struggles of Blige's life. 

It is, however, unclear if the documentary would feature the experience of her 12-year marriage to Kendu Isaac, which was officially put to a stop in 2018. 

A previous report by PEOPLE showed that the couple split on unfavorable terms with Blige describing her ex-husband as a "con artist" who only wanted her money. 


Interestingly, Monica Denise Arnold, who appeared in the post mentioned earlier, had also been dealt with the same hand, speaking of relationships.

However, it appears that both Blige and Monica are doing excellent even if they're no longer with their longtime partners.

Just like the previously mentioned commenter said, may a collaboration from the two isn't such a bad idea.
