NEW MUSIC: Mary J. Blige’s Single “Thick of It”

Mary J. Blige‘s new single “Thick of It” is her first single off her upcoming album Strength of A Woman.  Mary has a catalog filled with breakup songs.  A few that come to mind are “Therapy”, “No More Drama”, “Be Happy” and of course there was “Not Gon’ Cry” from the Waiting to Exhale soundtrack. “Thick of It” is another powerful one to add to the list.  One has to believe that “Thick of It”, like many of the others, is a song that some how mirrors Mary’s life.  Back in July, I was sad to hear that after 13 years of marriage, Mary J. Blige filed for divorce from Martin Isaacs.  As I listened to this emotional song, co-written by Jazmine Sullivan, I could hear these words echoed by so many other women.

So tell me who
Who’s gonna love
You like I do
Who will you trust
I gave you too much
Enough is enough
Now we’re in the thick of it
So tell me
Who’s gonna love
You like I do

Mary is on tour with Maxwell on the King + Queen of Hearts World Tour.  Get out and support live music when she comes to your city.  You can see her touring schedule at  Be sure to add Strength of A Woman to your Libro Musica when it drops later this year.

In this video as Mary pours out her heart as she rocks a Yanees fitted, a couple of mink coats, some killer boots and leather shorts.

With looks, style and a voice like that she is the envy of many other 45 year olds.  I know that this sista will bounce back soon ’cause I know the fellas still are saying “I got a Love Jones for your body and your skin tone.”

Mary J. Blige – “Just Fine”

The best message that I can give to Mary and any other of my sisters out there suffering through an ugly breakup can be found in one of Mary’s other break up songs.  You will be “Just Fine!”
