‘Thick of It’ Video by Mary J. Blige
Singer Mary J. Blige is back with the visual for her new single Thick of It. The track is the first to be released from the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul’s thirteenth solo album, Strength of a Woman, due out later this year.
The album comes in the midst of Mary’s divorce from her longtime manager Kendu Isaccs. Kendu has credits on several of Mary’s previous albums, and is currently seeking over 100k a month in spousal support from the singer.
Mary has been very vocal about her marital issues on tour, a theme she says will continue on the album. In a recent interview with Billboard, Mary says she’s always been honest with her fans about her life, and will continue to do so. She also revealed Strength of a Woman will feature contributions from Jazmine Sullivan, Kanye West and Hit-Boy.
