What It Do Boo…… You already know sunglasses have been part of Mary J. Blige’s signature style since her debut back in the 90s. As such it should come as no surprise so it come as no surprise that the hip-hop queen of soul is designing her own line of shades to make you look just as fly in your own day to day life.

Mary J. has been part of two other recent business ventures outside of the music that include a line of t-shirts and her own fragrance, so Melodies by MJB is another power move for the multi-platinum artist.

Blige isn’t working solo on this big venture. No she’s pulled in heavy weight music mogul and Chairman of Interscope Jimmy Iovine, to push the premium eyewear company Orange 21 to develop a sunglasses line called — Melodies by MJB. MJB will feature four styles with 20 different color options that all represent a specific facet of Blige’s life.

“To reach out beyond music, an artist has to become involved with something they’re already associated with and truly feel passionate about and not just stick their name on someone else’s product. As her fans know, Mary loves fashion and she especially loves sunglasses, making Melodies by MJB a natural fit for her,” said Jimmy Iovine. The music exec also helped execute the successful venture with Monster for the Beats By Dr. Dre headphones.
