Mary J. Blige has shared a new song, “Thick of It,” along with news of a new album. The track, a co-write with Jazmine Sullivan, heralds the announcement of Strength of a Woman, which is due this year on Capitol. Listen to the track via Spotify below, or hear an Apple Music preview.
In a press release, Blige said:
This song is so personal it’s almost painful to let it out. I don’t hold back though, it’s not who I am and there’s no way I am going to start changing now. We all deal with love and the emotions that we get tangled up in, and we gotta survive, grow and remain honest to our best selves,” she says. “I feel that with this song and it’s the first one off this album I’ve been immersing myself in for 2 years now. Music just saves me no matter what in life is happening.
