W e can always count on the Queen of Hip Hop Soul to belt out a heart-wrenching tune that pierces through our souls.
That’s right! Mary J. Blige is back with a new single called, “Thick of It,” a soulful, revealing song about a troubled relationship.
Love ain’t just black and white
Ain’t that simple
It gets hard to tell whose wrong or right
When it’s dark with us
I swear I barely see the light
Should I stick it out?
Are you worth this fight?
Are we worth this fight?
Cuz I ain’t no quitter babe
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
The multi-Grammy winner is no stranger to songs with such strong and powerful lyrics. Do we not remember songs like, No More Drama and Not Gon Cry – just to name a few. Here’s what she tells EW about her songs:
Being Mary J. Blige is real. It’s traumatic, and it’s beautiful. Because my life, I actually have to live out what I’m singing.
We can expect Blige’s new album, Strength of a Woman, this year!
Listen. What do you think of the new song? Like it or love it?
