Watch Mary J. Blige’s Video for ‘Thick Of It’

The Queen of Hip Hop Soul is back with a soulful new song and a video that feels like vintage MJB.

Though her divorce has been making headlines, Mary J. Blige once again slayed the music scene with her latest effort, “Thick of It,” which earned the singer her fifth number one single on the Adult R&B Songs airplay chart. According to Billboard, the song had the “fastest climb to number one is over 20 years.”

Blige pours her heart into the her music and “Thick of It” is no exception.

“This song is so personal it’s almost painful to let it out. I don’t hold back though, it’s not who I am and there’s no way I am going to start changing now. We all deal with love and the emotions that we get tangled up in, and we gotta survive, grow and remain honest to our best selves,” Blige said in a press release about the song. “I feel that with this song and it’s the first one off this album I’ve been immersing myself in for 2 years now. Music just saves me no matter what in life is happening.”

The song was co-written with Jazmine Sullivan and seems ripped from MJB’s current relationship drama.

In it she sings:

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
Who will you trust
I gave you too much
Enough is enough
Now were in the
Now we’re in the thick of it

Though heartbreak is sad for everyone involved, MJB has a knack for turning it into great music–and she delivered again.
