No one sings pain like the Queen of Hip Hop Soul. Mary J Blige’s career took off nearly 25 years ago with classics like “Real Love,” “Love No Limit” and her rousing rendition of “I’m Goin’ Down”. Since then, she has evolved into a modern day legend. A large part of her appeal is her willingness to share her struggles. Her musical transparency is what people love about her. Some fans have shunned her for being so positive in recent years though; particularly when she married former manager Kendu Isaacs. However, that was then and this is now. Several recent accounts state that some fans may got a dose of her pain once again..
Mary J Blige is currently on tour with Maxwell, co headlining their King and Queen of Hearts tour. During one of her recent performances, she gave fans a taste of her new music. “Thick Of It” is her new single, rumored to be written by Jazmine Sullivan. In a nutshell, she’s angry here and hurting over a love gone wrong. She’s bold and confident here though, knowing she did all she could to make it work. Supposedly, Kendu Isaacs was caught cheating on Mary J Blige with Karrine “Superhead” Steffans. If you don’t know who Superhead is, just Google her.
Fans have been going wild over “Thick Of It”. Mary J Blige is clearly back and in full effect. Check out the song for yourself below. Would you Bump It or Dump It? I think it’s safe to say Mary J Blige will have some interesting content to sing about on her upcoming CD.
