Mary J. Blige Is In the ‘Thick of It’ On Soulful Single

Mary J. Blige is back and serving up that “Not Gon’ Cry” goodness with a slightly upbeat tempo on her new single “Thick of It.”

The song delivers a nice bounce while Mary laces the beat with lyricism that addresses the trials of a relationship at its breaking point.

She sings: I ain’t no quitter babe/and I’ll be damned if all these years, I let you diss me baby/I was there when no one wanted to stay with you baby…/em>

And more good news, the single will most likely appear on the vocal powerhouses upcoming album Strength of a Woman, which is slated to hit sometime later this year. “Thick of it” also marks the first musical release since news broke about her filing for divorce from husband, Kendu Isaacs.

The single is already receiving loads of love, which is a good look for Mary after mixed feelings erupted after this political move.

But, folks are still going to ride with the Queen of Hip Hop Soul!
