On Disclosure‘s acclaimed debut album, Settle, the song “F For You” was the only track that didn’t feature a guest vocalist. That is until now.

The brotherly duo revealed that the guest vocals will be sung by Mary J. Blige, who will take the lead on the new version of the track, set to drop tomorrow (Jan. 23).

The collaboration was initially teased by Blige herself, who tweeted out a picture of Disclosure’s signature “face” logo superimposed over her own. Early this morning (Jan. 22), Disclosure released a :13 second clip of Mary doing her thing.

Disclosure closed their three-night run of shows at New York’s Terminal 5 last Sunday night (Jan. 19) by bringing out Blige for a spirited rendition of “F For You,” much to the delight of the lucky fans in attendance.

During the band’s time in New York, they also connected with legendary A Tribe Called Quest rapper Q-Tip for a studio session, with Q-Tip posting a photo with the brothers to Instagram.

Blige also showed Disclosure love on her Instagram, posting a backstage photo with the Lawrence brothers as well as Sting, who was in the house for her performance with the emerging dance music stars.

Disclosure are nominated for the band’s first GRAMMY this year as they compete against Daft Punk, Kaskade and Calvin Harris for the Best Dance/Electronica Award during this Sunday’s ceremony (Jan. 26).

The duo is also set to hit this year’s festival circuit, already booking dates at the 2014 editions of Coachella and NYC’s Governor’s Ball.
