Mary J. Blige went straight to the source for her new cover of U2's "One," drafting Bono to join her on vocals. The recording will be found on her upcoming retrospective, "Reminisce," due Dec. 6 via Geffen. The album will also feature the new single "Be Without You" and "MJB Da MVP," which utilizes the Game's "Hate It or Love It" as its musical bed.

Although the full track list for "Reminisce" has not been announced, a spokesperson says it will feature such past hits as "My Life," "Seven Days," "Not Gon' Cry" and "Family Affair," plus selections from throughout her discography.

Blige sees "Reminisce" as a companion piece to her in-progress new studio album, "The Breakthrough," which will be released in February. According to the label, "Breakthrough" reflects "a newfound serenity" from the artist, who dubbed her last album "No More Drama."

Blige, who will receive the Vibe Awards' VLegend honor at this year's ceremony, is also expected to perform late next month on CBS' "The Late Show With David Letterman."
