Mary J. Blige Announces Tour With Jazmine Sullivan

Outing, which kicks off October 2 in Atlanta, also includes R&B singer Miguel.

[artist id="854"]Mary J. Blige[/artist] and [artist id="1875398"]Jazmine Sullivan[/artist] first teamed up at BET’s “SOS Saving Ourselves: Help for Haiti” telethon earlier this year, and now the two singers will join forces once again, as they’re set to hit the road together for a fall tour.

Blige announced the trek — also scheduled to include Miguel — during an appearance on BET’s “106 & Park.”

The tour will begin October 2 in Atlanta and feature stops in New York (October 11 and 12); Atlantic City, New Jersey (October 8); and Virginia Beach, Virginia (October 3).

Blige told the “106 & Park” studio audience that Sullivan was “one of the most amazing female singers out right now in this generation, and of course, she’s got to be a part of my generation.” She added: “She’s my sister. I love this girl’s voice and spirit. Jazmine Sullivan is for real, and she’s going on the road with me.”

The Philadelphia-born Sullivan’s Missy Elliott-produced “Holding You Down (Goin’ in Circles)” remix, which features Blige and Swizz Beatz, dropped Monday. The track samples several hip-hop and R&B hits, including Slick Rick’s “La Di Da Di,” rap supergroup the Firm’s “Affirmative Action” and Blige’s “Be Happy.”

Sullivan is set to release her sophomore project, Love Me Back, in October; Miguel is finishing up his debut, All I Want Is You, for release next year.
