ICYMI: Listen to Mary J. Blige Bare It All ‘Strength Of A Woman’

Mary J Blige

It has been 25 years since the release of Mary J. Blige‘s 1992 debut masterpiece What’s the 411?  The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul returns today with her 13th studio album titled Strength of A Woman. Featuring a series of heavy-hitters including Quavo, DJ Khaled, Missy Elliott, Kaytranada, Kanye West and more, Blige bares it all on the this album which she is no stranger to doing. For decades, Mary has been blessing us with relatable and vulnerable music based on her trials and triumphs.

“My mom raised us by herself, my dad wasn’t there. And I never really seen this woman cry. I seen her work really, really hard. I see her love hard and take care of her children. We didn’t live in a great environment, but she was so strong” she shared in an interview with NPR on who she attributes her strength to.

Literally putting it all in her music, Mary has decided that she will not be broken by her trials on tracks like “Set Me Free” where the songstress bluntly croons “I was loving you/And you were playing games.” Each track evokes different emotions. Stream Mary J Blige’s highly anticipated Strength of a Woman below.
