Mary J. Blige is making her way back on the scene. The hip hop princess just recently released her Christmas album and now she’s showing off her sexy abs on the cover of Shape magazine for their December 2013 issue.

Inside, the 42-year-old songtress dished on how she is feeling sexier than ever and what encouraged her to lose weight and get healthy. She also credits cardio for being her main source of staying in shape, talks learning how to swim and how the death of Whitney Houston encouraged her to cut out alcohol.

Check out excerpts from the interview below:

On how she keeps her body in shape:
My main exercise is cardio. The treadmill is fine but running outdoors gives me the best results. I try to jog 6 to 8 miles a week. I could be in the worst mood, but when I do my cardio I feel much, much better.

On learning how to swim to increase her cardio workouts:
At first it was very hard, but once I got in the water and figured out how to breathe, it was so liberating.

On cutting alcohol out of her diet:
Others may be able to drink and have a great time, but it doesn’t work for me at this point. I haven’t had a drink in a year and three months. I had quit for a long time but started again about five years ago. I’m off it completely once more, and now I feel stronger than ever.
