“It means so much, man, I work really hard.

It feels good, it’s humbling, man,” she had said after the announcement of the nominees.

Blige also discussed the inspiration behind Good Morning Gorgeous in an interview and said, “It was something that I had to say to myself when I was in a very dark situation to move myself away from the lies that were being told to me and uplift me.”
“I had to believe in something that was way more powerful than what I believed about myself and manifest it in my heart and in my life and it made me see myself as a pretty good person, you know? So, it’s not just about vanity but it’s how it manifested me seeing who I truly was, who I truly am,” she explained further.
