As fans continue to cry foul for the lack of full on promotion afforded Mary J. Blige‘s late 2016 bop of a single, ‘Thick of It,’ the Queen of Hip Hop Soul has seemingly left the Jazmine Sullivan-penned number in her rearview in favor of its follow-up, ‘U+Me (Love Lesson).’
‘Lesson’ leans on a number of themes found in ‘Thick,’ including what appears to be peeks into the end of her nearly 13-year marriage to ex-husband Kendu Isaacs. Listed on the singer’s forthcoming album, ‘Strength of a Woman,’ rescheduled from its December 2016 release to a yet-revealed date, get into the new tune below and weigh in:
Man, f*** what you heard! Mary J. Blige is coming with pure heat this era. This + ‘Thick’ was everything we’ve been missing from MJB. And, for as much as we are sorry to hear of her personal problems, we’ve learned that the best of her art is birthed from heartbreak.
Here’s hoping this single receives the promotional treatment it deserves and that the rest of ‘Strength’ sounds just as good!
