Mary J Blige is no stranger to the acting game, but it's her latest role that, perhaps, the singer most relates to.

Blige will play Florence Jackson in the upcoming film Mudbound. The film is about a family who relocates to rural Mississippi. It premiered to rave reviews at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and will premiere on Netflix and theaters on November 17, 2017.
