In the meantime, we reported previously Blige will executive produce an upcoming Lifetime Movie inspired by her iconic “Real Love” single.

“I wrote Real Love based on my real-life experiences, and my fans connected to it in a deeply personal way,” Blige shared in a statement. “It’s exciting to now use this song and my music to create a new story by way of film, continuing to build on a pillar of the foundation of my production company, Blue Butterfly. My passions for acting and music now include developing diverse stories with music as the backdrop. I am grateful to Lifetime for their partnership in the story of ‘Real Love.’”

The upcoming Lifetime movie – Madamenoir notes – is a romantic drama – a coming-of-age – featuring Kendra, a determined young woman who enrolls in upstate New York for her college studies. Her initial plans are to focus on her studies. Still, when she meets Ben, her film class partner, they fall hard in love, which teaches her the meaning of real love despite all the challenges she faces: financial hardship, competition for the top-class position, and disapproving parents.
