R&B legend Mary J. Blige recently graced the cover of Self Magazine, and she looks absolutely incredible.

The “No More Drama” hitmaker shared the cover — and the photoshoot inside — on her Instagram account, and what a spread it is.

For the cover shot, Mary is posing in sunglasses while wearing a black-and-white netted crop top alongside white hot pants of the same material. She is seen rocking sunglasses and huge hoop earrings while also showing off the rose tattoo on her thigh. Her toned body is on full display as she fiercely places one hand on her head and the other on her leg. Mary is sporting blond, wavy hair and has never looked better.

Other shots for the issue consist of her wearing a snakeskin garment while sporting a low-cut vest in addition to more athletic looks — both of which compliment her beautiful shape.

There are also some up-close beauty shots in black-and-white included, and these photos highlight how much of a natural stunner the “Real Love” songstress is.

Mary thanked Self for allowing her to be on their latest cover, and for giving her the opportunity to share herself with her fans again.

In the space of 20 hours, the post racked up more than 126,000 likes, proving to be a hit with her followers.

“You slayed these photos Queen‼️ That bawdy is SNATCHED‼️” one user wrote.

“Mary you look super amazing in those photos. Stay blessed and continue to let your light shine forth,” another fan shared.

“Yessss Mary give it to ’em!” a third admirer remarked, adding multiple heart-eye and flame emoji.

“Come through Mary!!!!” a fourth fan gushed.

Last month, Mary was photographed in an animal-print swimsuit, an ensemble which had her fans in awe of her. The Inquisitr reported on the look.

Her last release was two years ago, in 2017.
