New Song: Mary J. Blige & Nas – ‘Thriving’

Published: Wednesday 8th May 2019 by Sam


Mary J. Blige and Nas are pairing their newly announced live show with new music.

The regal duo are embarking on the ‘Royalty Tour’ this summer and have unleashed anthemic single ‘Thriving’ to trumpet the venture.

Take a listen to the hard-hitting cut after the jump…

A bop.

This is easily one of the strongest efforts MJB has delivered in years. Its message is no doubt mirroring of her revitalisation after personal hardships, yet also functions as a universal anthem of empowerment for the masses.

Her established chemistry with Mr Illmatic remains intact and this has ample potential for Urban radio.

Kudos to both!

    LOVE it and FINALLY some good flavour back in music!
    Imma need MJB bring some heavy beats this time around! ‘The One’ was beyond amazing and should of done better!!!

    I hate this flavourless music ‘artists’ are bringing out now!

    It’s just ok. Mainstream radio won’t play the song unfortunately.

      She’s past radio playing her songs they don’t support her so may as well just come out with whatever lol

    Not very catchy

    The message is definitely needed but the song itself is just ok. Hopefully this is a warm up to the main course.

    I was trying to decide if I wanted to go and see the tour. This song just made the decision for me… I won’t be going.

    I like the beat. Need to listen to it a few more times. Might grow on me…The art cover is great though. MJB looks great for 48.

    These comments are why music sucks now. these mouthbreathers dont know good music. they only like nursery rhymes by someone who can barely speak at first grade level. This song is hot but it wont get any play because the stupid have taken over America. I think for the first time in awhile stupid people I mean real dumb people outnumber normal people.

      Honey you are soooooo right. People are so brainwashed nowadays. I feel sorry for them, but I will stay woke and continue to pray for them. IMO this song is radio friendly & I immediately liked it. For some it may take a few listens, but I love it!
