Blige went straight back to his home studio following their show on Sunday. “We went downstairs to the studio and she was playing me samples and we were just vibing out,” Dre said. He also admitted, “we’re talking about working together on her next project.” However, he was premature in making the announcement and apologized to Mary for leaking the news!
