Blige told USA Today that her character, Monet Tejada, a queen pin and single mother, resonated with her as a woman and a survivor in a male-dominated world. She added:

"Women are always ahead because we have so much to deal with...We’re always strategizing for survival."

While Blige's life and career are enviable, she has not always been at her peak and fought hard for survival in her younger years. From drug and alcohol abuse to a messy divorce with Kendu Isaacs in 2016, Blige has been through it all.

The "Mudbound" actress admitted to The Guardian's Rebecca Nicholson that at some point, she lost confidence in herself as an artist until 2014 when she recorded "The London Sessions" with Sam Smith and Disclosure.

At 50 years old, Blige has learned to love and appreciate herself by reminding herself of her beauty and her worth. Her self-care routine includes relaxing baths and listening to music while sipping a glass of her Sun Goddess wine.

The "No More Drama" singer recently launched her own wine brand, which was birthed during the pandemic. Blige said she was inspired to create Sun Goddess Wines to lighten the world during a difficult period.
