Mary J. Blige Shares Artwork, Announces Release Date for New Album ‘Strength of a Woman’
If you were hoping for some new Mary J. Blige music following her divorce last year, then you’re in luck.
The veteran singer has announced that she will be releasing a brand new album, Strength of a Woman, which is set for release on April 28. Blige also shared the official cover art for the new project on Instagram. This will be her first full-length project since The London Sessions, which dropped in 2014.
After she filed for divorce last year, Blige released two emotional tracks— “Thick of It” and “U+Me (Love Yourself)”— which were a reflection of her feelings on the breakup of her longtime marriage with Martin “Kendu” Isaac. Reports say that things have gotten nasty between Blige and her ex-husband, as he has reportedly demanded $126,000 monthly in spousal support and has refused to return her Grammys and cars.
While we hope that Blige is doing better following the ongoing divorce proceedings, we know that fans can hardly wait for the music to come. The singer is known for having some great heartbreak music, and this album will likely capture that sound once more.
