VIDEO: Mary J. Blige – 25/8

Mary J. Blige’s new album, “My Life II: The Journey Continues, Act 1,” is due November 21.

The set features guest appearances by Beyonce, Nas and Rick Ross, and the deluxe version adds a track with Lil' Wayne and Diddy.

Blige has just issued the video for the track “25/8,” and has offered up some behind the scenes footage of the making of the video, as well.

“The meaning behind 25/8,” says Mary, “is to have a 25th hour in your day, and a 8th day in your week. The song is about not having enough time to spend with someone; it’s like the ultimate love…like when you’re having fun, time just seems to fly.”

Mary will be featured on VH1 Divas this December, with an all-star cast that includes Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Jill Scott, Florence + The Machine and Jessie J.

"VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul" happens at New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom and premieres Monday, December 19 at 9 PM ET/PT on VH1.
