Mary J. Blige and Nas have collaborated on a single titled, “Thriving.”

The new single is said to be the first song from Blige’s upcoming 14th studio album.

The album is rumored to drop right before Blige heads on the road with Nas for the Royalty tour.

The Royalty tour will take the duo across North America, kicking off in West Palm Beach, Florida, and bowing out on Sept. 10 in Toronto.

Despite having worked together before, this is the first time that the R&B and hip-hop icons have toured together.
