Mary J. Blige Readies Her Glow Up
Singer Mary J. Blige is readying the release of two new singles from her recent Strength of a Woman album. Earlier this week the Queen of Hip Hop Soul took to Instagram to share the cover art for both singles, which include Set Me Free, and Glow Up, a collaboration between Mary, Missy Elliot, Quavo and DJ Khaled.
During a recent interview with Billboard, Mary confirmed that both Set Me Free and Glow Up were recorded after her marriage to Kendu Isaacs fell apart. “We had to go back and re-record a huge portion of the album,” she told the magazine. “I didn’t set to out to share so much of my struggle, but in the end I knew I could not put out music that wasn’t in keeping with where I was emotionally and spiritually.”
Fans not familiar with either track can check out Mary performing them both during a recent concert stop at Madison Square Garden in New York Vity.
