Power's Tasha actress teases fiery clash with Mary J Blige as worlds collide in Book II: Ghost

POWER: Book II is just around the corner – and it sounds like two femme fatales are set to butt heads.

Tasha actress Naturi Naughton lifted the lid on working with Mary J Blige, who makes her show debut in the upcoming episodes as new character Monet.

Fans will remember that Tasha ended the main series going to jail in order to save her son Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr).

Tariq was revealed as James 'Ghost' St Patrick's (Omari Hardwick) murderer and managed to make an escape after his mother took the fall.

Naughton saif that while she was honoured to work with Blige, their characters don't exactly get on well.

"I think having Mary J Blige step in to this role of Monet is so exciting because it's adding another strong female character to our story base, and she's awesome – and so humble and ready to work, her and Method Man – but [it's exciting] for women out there who see a reflection of themselves in Monet's character and Tasha," she told Digital Spy.


"You know, it's really beautiful because I think we often don't get to see that as much, and I think the way that Monet is written, people really enjoy, she's a really good character and Mary J is iconic – so it's an honour to have this beautiful iconic female come into power and literally just kill it," she went on.

She concluded: "However, our paths may cross. And when they do. We will not be buddy buddy, not at first."

The comments come after Naugton teased that "more brutal murders" were around the corner in the upcoming spin-off.
