Mary J. Blige and Nas have added new dates to their co-headlining "Royalty Tour". The superstars added new dates to the tour due to popular demand.

On Sunday night, Mary was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2019 Bet Awards at The Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The award was presented to the icon by pop singer Rihanna.

Afterwards, Mary changed outfits and performed a medley of her gold and platinum hits with stars Lil Kim and Method Man.

Mary and Nas previously collaborated on the 1997 single "Love is All We Need" and then again on 2012's "Reach Out". Last month, Mary and Nas released a new single titled "Thriving".

The North American tour added dates in Brooklyn, Baltimore, Newark, and Indianapolis, according to Yahoo News.

Tickets for the added dates go on sale this Friday, June 28th via LiveNation. Tickets are expected to sell out quickly.

Watch videos of Mary's performances below.

  • missmiami305

    There’s an old ROSE that used to font like this. Before auntie switched over. So when I see your font it takes me back about 10yrs lol.

  • missmiami305

    She and Nas are currently touring. Hoping they extend it.

    Edit to add: my bad I didn’t notice the title which indicates she is adding dates with Nas lol.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Mary picked the show up then shut it down!??????

  • Li-Wright

    Is MJB still paying the husband? All those performances money are going to him.

  • KcoolMuziq

    An NDA of the settlement between Mary(whom I met at a SAG screening) and her ex husband has been sealed.

  • Seldomseen

    Back down memory lane

  • IamAllnatural

    Mary J showed out last night. She dances better now than in the 90s. Her voice was a little sketchy but it didn’t matter because her songs are forever hits. I was tired of looking at her butt cheeks though, but that was nothing compared to the fat chick Lizzo who looked like a sumo wrestler.
    And Method Man looked goodt. I wonder if he still has that thumb sucking mouth on him.?

  • Renee26

    Same

  • Renee26

    She granted requests today

  • dontgetblocked

    I'm going to buy her new "pink" lipstick from MAC. I know she needs the money.

  • tia

    I'm in love with Mary Jane.

    Mary said, " fawck that shit, I'll do my own damn tribute." I'm more in love now than back in the day. She literally showed her cellulite ass cheeks ( which were oh so beautiful) last night. That body tho!!
    She showed out and I had my own concert here last night . August 2nd in Houston, I'll be waiting!!

    All hail the Queen!!

  • tia

    Well, we all know Mary ain't the best vocalist. But her resilience, swag and so many other things trump the voice tho. When she's gone, her music will still be here until infinity and will be timeless. It will never go away!

  • tia

    I know this is a Mary post, but Method Man tho? Lawd, he looked so delicious!! Lawd have mercy!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Dont be disrespectful. Method and I have been in a committed relationship for years. https://media1.giphy.com/media/IbUUbU4xUDJWcgGMGP/giphy.gif

  • tia

    Please forgive me!!! LMAO
    Well, you need to keep him locked up!! Lol!!

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Y'all need to fall back on my man. Thank you kindly

  • the guest

    I much prefer Mary J as an artist to Beyoncé any day. I’m only comparing to make the point of recognizing authenticity. Mary J’s performance was authenticity to fullest extent. I will be buying Royalty Tour tickets and going to my first concert in years.

    MJ has mastered the combination of humility and confidence. Also, not a fan of Diddy’s character deficits, but it was truly heartwarming to see him sincerely lit up like a proud father or brother watching MJ perform. Even Diddy was humbled.

  • Kimberly King

    Queen ! I heard lots of people say that Mary's performance was the only one that they liked.

  • OvertheMississippi

    I told my hubby that as we were watching Shaft. I didn’t see show last night though.

  • luVn_liFe…

    in me heydey.. there was NEVER A Mary concert I didnt attend and find every year!!

  • Kimberly King

    He looked sooooo sexy! The right amount of muscle. Him and my boyfriend are the same age. That's that SEASONED beef. Lmao

  • tia

    No! No! No!

  • Nunya Business

    Lol

  • luVn_liFe…

    just turned it to BET for the rerun and caught Rhi presenting her the award and her performance... MARY "muthaFawKinJay ladies and gentlemen!

  • tia

    Father Time is definitely in agreement with Method Man:)

  • Mielle Downey

    MJB has been an Icon to black women everywhere. So glad she was celebrated. This woman sings about what she knows and the pain is she feels is universal and this is why she is one of my favorite artists since the beginning of her career. GOD BLESS HER.

  • GinJen

    Lil Kim up there looking like tethered Michael Jackson... she's giving me the sads

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    IB love Mary she reppn for my era in style and graceB BUT SHE STILL CAN'T SING and Lil Kim outfitt was the bomb but BABY SOUNDED OUTTA BREATH. METHOD MAN CAN GET IT EVERY WITCHAWAY!!! AND RHI LOOKED AMAZING! PUFF LOOK DRYN. I HATE THAT CLITORIS LIKE TOP LIP OF HIS!!

  • Melanated Goddess??

    Y'all not gonna slander Mary Jane Blige in here! Not on my watch! Y'all better leave Mary alone! She did the damn thing at the BET awards. She deserves everything plus more. She's a living legend , an icon. Put some respect on her name. Side note Method Man is sexy! He's gotten better with age. Dude old enough to be my daddy and he can still get it. Sexy ass. Him and Nas are my 90's man crushes. Both aging like fine wine.

  • Melanated Goddess??

    You have a lot of nerve talking about anyone with your lumpy legs and dry bank account. You have an issue with black women that look better than you. So you tear them down. I don't understand how your racism goes unnoticed and unchecked in here. You praise the first tramp every chance you get. Typical trash. Now report this comment.

  • Satui Lerne

    Well deserved. Strength of a Woman proved to me that there is no end to her talent.

  • ImReallyCaitlynNotMelania

    I love Mary J but did not love seeing her butt cheeks in that white outfit. Don't know why she was trying to pull the ends down on the booty shorts after taking her coat off. She knew how short/short those pants were. Nevertheless, she did do her thang....Too bad Kendu, you had a good woman but you f************************** up.

  • Vonda K

    Mary J deserves respect just for the mere fact that she’s survived and thriving over 2 decades in a male dominated,cut throat Business intact.
    Salute to you Mary!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Method is still one good looking man. 48yrs old,never looked sew good on one man

  • Marlika

    Who is that gutter rough looking rat in the audience with the blond hair and gray Run DMC shirt?? ??????

  • T3

    I thoroughly enjoyed her set! I love Mary! Glad I tuned in when I did and caught it. #QueenMary

  • Wreckognize Game

    That’s the one that wanted to do Lil Kim’s part so bad?

  • Malificent

    I saw it! Her performance gave me life. I wish I had some extra cash to cop a ticket.

  • Malificent

    Sandra ? please do a ticket giveaway https://media3.giphy.com/media/tN1lvnT4M6nte/giphy.gif

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    dat bish know every word to every song circa 1983-1999

  • Joy King

    Mary J is a survivor. You feel that woman's pain in everything she sings. Her performance at the BET Awards was epic. And my girl Rhi Rhi looked beautiful. She's my favorite!!

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Her vulnerability has been one key factor in why many of legends like herself can be actually deemed as a true iconic and innovative gem of gems! Bey and her fake Becky’s and unsweetened lemonade was and still is a stunt (joke) for the all mighty Dolla instead of authentic artistry....bloop lol

  • Pamela

    Block it. Not worth the aggravation .

  • T Willis

    I thought it was Remy Ma ?

  • T Willis

    I wish Diddy had been the one to present the award to MJB. I love Rihanna and I’m sure MJB meant a lot to her and her career, but, Diddy has been with MJB from the start! Going back to Uptown Records. And I think he executively produced My Life (greatest f*cking album ??). Give that man (Diddy) respect ??. In the 90s he gave us some of the best artists of our time, and cultivated their talent. Put some respeck on both they names, okkkkur?

  • T Willis

    Omg he still looks so dayum good

  • T Willis

    Lizzo killt that sh*t! Omg I am now a fan... and big ups to BET for giving her the platform to showcase her talent! If I’m being honest, I would never seek out Lizzo because of her size and appearance. But I’m glad I saw her perform because she is the truth ?

  • yvette46

    Hi Ms. Sandra Rose off topic: Can you post the story of Lexus Stagg.. Thanks..

  • yvette46

    Rihanna reads like Floyd Mayweather!! Almost a billionaire if not and she sounds like she just got here..

  • Melanated Goddess??

    You sound ignorant and stupid. Since when does having an accent make one sound uneducated? I suggest you check out the educational system in Barbados before you run your stank mouth. Ignorant comments like yours are why Rihanna tries to hide/ tone down her accent. Worry about the backwoods American accents and leave Rihanna alone.

  • luVn_liFe…

    I hope the make it ti Broward County.. I cant do Palm Beach .. they're in an outdoor venue.

  • oshh16

    I've seen Mary before and the closest venue to me is Baltimore, don't want to go up there.

  • Jay

    Just read her story that chick is crazy and deserves to rot in jail.

  • IamAllnatural

    I’ll admit that she killt it but her outfit was a BIG no.

  • EasyBreezy

    Ouch!

  • EasyBreezy

    Headed to Google now....

  • EasyBreezy

    Just back from Google....rotting in jail is too good for this "mother."

  • Jennifer

    Words cannot describe how much I love Mary. I can still see my 11yo self holding that brush screaming Reminicse with all my ?. She is so important to our culture. The way we dress, wear our hair, do our makeup...has all been influenced by Mary. I feel about her the way our elders felt about ReRe, but for me, Mary is SO much more. She is a true trendsetter, Icon, and I cannot imagine my life without her music and style ?

  • oshh16

    Mary always been FLYyyy!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    You are so right about the educational system in Barbados!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Love, Love Mary, and when Lil Kim came out, it just added to this divine performance, and Method Man reminded people what real Hip Hop does, not hype, hits, but pure talent!

    Mary is such a soulful singer! Yeah, she wouldn’t always hit the right notes, but Andre Harrell and Puffy saw a niche and vision, and her sound came out of what she didn’t know!

    Check out Mary’s Christmas Album with legendary music producer, David Foster, Mary sings beautifully, even has a duet with Barbara Streisand! MJB CAN SING!

    All Hail to this Queen!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Yes cause those tickets are a lil pricey...

  • iWasteTime

    I did the Heart of the City Tour back in 08.
    We were turnt but it was hard to go from Mary to Hov and back ... lol
    I imagine it will be the same for this concert but I'm going cause I love Mary and I've only seen Nas once or twice

  • Renee26

    Imma go and throw my panties at him ?

  • Renee26

    They probably rehearsed a lot cause she was more hoarse than she usually is in concert

  • Renee26

    Plus she was reading a teleprompter... They need to get a grip

  • iWasteTime

    lolol!!

  • Karen Brady

    Chile cuz some of these ATL accents knock me out sometimes.

  • Parent

    Can't wait!!! God willing, I will be purchasing tickets to the Jersey show!

  • Connie

    BUT SHE STILL CAN'T SING
    ^^^^^
    HUH??!!

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    yes!!! Meth looked scrumptious *goes to follow him*

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    The Greatest!!!!

  • ???TheRider???

    Up there looking like a whole Sunday dinner, not a snack ?

  • ???TheRider???

    Shoot, I’ve been crushing on MM since the All I Need video. When he raised his head up from the concrete, cock eyed, braids half done, it was ova??

  • Soon2BWife

    Has Ri ever been to the BET Awards?

  • ALLMINE?

    "You're all I need" Wow that was such a dark song and video. As a kid that was hip hip.. lol very dark and scary..??? now its like sesame street theme songs. Smh

  • Soon2BWife

    Then Da Baby hit the stage with his weird body type, white belt and a large white baby mascot dancing sexually. Lord Jesus......

  • MsVAllDay

    I saw Nas in Atlanta a few months ago and the concert was da bomb!!!!

  • SpiceGirl

    So I JUST watched her part of the show on Youtube....GO MARY!!! What I wanted to say to Nicki,Cardi,Megan the Stallon (or what ever her name is) THIS is how you be CLASSY and NOT assy! Even tho....I seen a tiny bit of booty meat....Mary still SLAYED!! (Grown women ish) I guess these birds wouldn't now ANYTHING about that! js

  • Sassie

    Oh how I love me some Mary J. She got me through a LOT in my early years. Love her.

  • Sassie

    What was "dark" about it?

  • Sassie

    That was a whole mess, wasn't it? And he's built super funny...and the babies dancing on the stage looked creepy. Just a whole big NO.

  • Sassie

    Well said!

  • Sassie

    LOL

  • Melanated Goddess??

    People assume if the schools aren't in America they're bad. Yeah ok lol.

  • kboogie

    This is going to be off the flap..... I've loved both of them since my college days.... Their concerts are really ?...my question is "Have they added Chicago to their tour"?...Mary is performing an outdoor concert this summer by herself. .P. S I saw her last summer.... On the top of my list of best concerts I've seen.... So uplifting.... But I grew with Mary.... From what's the 411to the present.... I have truly matured with Mary and her music eras...What I also luv about Mary is that she does not try to put out music that does not match her age... So many artist do..... to stay relevant, but what they really look like is aunties and uncles looking like old ass I don't know whats .....?

  • ALLMINE?

    The lyrics sound the videos etc.. especially NY rap music.. "Mobb Deep" "Wu Tang" "black Moon" all that shit was dark.. it was scary. Lol

  • imright

    was mary sick ? she sounds terrible

  • Strappyheels

    I thought it was just me...

    I want her to get over this blonde stage, expeditiously!! https://media2.giphy.com/media/iJgOsRMaCKwxVRbDto/giphy.gif

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    She looked great the the production was awesome the surprise appearances was off the chain (i hate to say it) but mama didnt sound so good

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    That was my first time seeing her there

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Lil kim looked great. She reminded me of the Lil Kim from the 90s. Maybe shes getting her mojo back after reconnecting with Junior Mafia

  • tia

    Truth be told and we all know, Mama does not have the best vocals----never has. Regardless tho, she's done so much for the culture and beyond. She's resilient as hell and a bunch of other stuff. All that trumps the ''VOICE." I love Mary and she can do no wrong. But I hear you tho.

  • Wayup!

    Hope they coming to Philly ??

  • Sha

    You said that right, all they got is ass up face down. No class what so every but let them tell it.

  • SpiceGirl

    Right! That generation is off the hook! Sex ALWAYS did sell...but come on now!

  • Readytochokemothernature

    I'm a diehard only quit when the blue CD which I bought came out with Kendu in charge, Love and Life I believe it was called because I hated it. I started buying again tho. I hope she sounds better than Sunday.as she started off rough like she couldn't hear in the earbuds.

  • Marlika

    But what’s her name??

  • Logan Roberts

    I will always love ??? Mary. I understand the Capricorn struggle we have to go through in order for us to be great.

  • Wreckognize Game

    ????? beats me. Sorry, I don’t have the answers

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    I just love mary so much. I brought two tickets for my twin and I to get our boogie on at barclays center!! Can't wait!! Her performances always lit!!

    https://media.giphy.com/media/AASUQoMRbtjaw/giphy.gif

  • Marlika

    ? it’s okay

  • yvette46

    Sorry Sandra,

    Fuck u slut! Bitch my mom is from Turks and Caicos and she can read...and not sound like a five year old!!

    Dummy wasn't speaking on her accent speaking on her reading skills.. Matter fact just got back last week from Barbados and visited her home you skank..

    So suck my poon poon if you don't like America get the fuck out.. Stop your whining I'm pretty sure she's not sending you no check!!

  • yvette46

    Man, way under the jail..

  • yvette46

    It's just my opinion these fans of hers act like she's cutting.them checks...

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Those tickets are sold out, ma'am.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I won’t lie. I was thoroughly entertained by her. She had all the enthusiasm singing those songs as I had in my living room. ?????I almost started jumping on the couch like Tom Cruise.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Lil Kim STILL has it, SHEER ARTISTRY AND TALENT!

    I screamed, and Mary looked life she got some life from Kim’s throwback performance, the two of them onstage together, decades later, AWESOME!

    IDGAF what she did to her face, I would pay to see her over any of today’s female rappers, she’s undeniable!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    What people don’t realize is that Barbados (98% + literacy rates) as well of other countries that have national education, a high school education often surpasses US literacy rates! The last two years of H.S. is non-compulsory!

    Rihanna has always been articulate and expressive, an accent is a dialect, and not a speech impediment, nor a reflection of her intelligence!

    We Americans basically speak one language, and have an accent too!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Her vocals and energy was off, especially at the beginning! Maybe, a cold...but still outstanding!

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    What would REALLY be awsome as well is if Foxy could pull it together and drop something new. It would be awsome if eve and swizz got back together too

  • Rhyme and Reason

    It would be bananas to see a show like this with a reality docu-series leading up to the show!

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Yeah bit for some reason Kim kust ain't fukkc'n with Foxy no matter what smh. I wonder what happen between them for Kim to not like her that much

  • Rhyme and Reason

    They could make it work, if they could put aside dislikes, shots taken, wrongs, and have the backing of someone like Ava Duvenay at the helm.

    If the Backstreet Boys, N-Sync, Spice Girls or other 90s and 00s artists can tour, Las Vegas residencies, sellout shows, so can Hip Hop greats!

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Your right. I totally agree

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Lol.... I didn't read it either, so thanks for letting me know! :)

  • Melanated Goddess??

    Really? Do you hear yourself. Was all of that necessary ? You were wrong and this is what you do? You're an animal with no impulse control. No one wants to suck your old sour worn out frowsy cat. I know it stinks which is why you're mad. Leave America? You first. I was born here you imbicial. Why is that always the first thing you ignorant animals say whenever some one has an issue. That's how small minded and ignorant you morons are. This has nothing to do with her giving money. Your sour stank frowsy behind was wrong. Stay mad.
