On the path of releasing her frustrations behind the abrupt ending of her 12-year marriage to Kendu Issacs, Mary J. Blige unleashes a new song entitled “Thick Of It.” The official single was co-penned by artist-songwriter Jazmine Sullivan.
In the song, Mary details her feelings saying:
And I be damned if all these years I let you diss me babe
I was there when no one wanted to stay with you baby
You know I deserve more than this
Mary recently told WDAS 105.3 FM:
“If you know me, you know what I’m dealing with right now. The “Thick of It” is the divorce and all this stuff that’s going on right now. It’s the heaviness of it and the whole thing…that’s where I am. I’m in the middle of a divorce and it doesn’t feel good. It feels terrible, but I have strength to get through and I get through by any means necessary.”
Mary is now working on her upcoming album Strength of a Woman, which is the follow-up to the 2014 project London Sessions. Also, Blige has been reaching out into other ventures and now has a new Apple Music program titled The 411 where she recently interviewed Hillary Clinton.
