Mary J. Blige
A one-of-a-kind blend of hip-hop and soul that has excited fans for more than 20 years…
Nine-time GRAMMY® Award-winner, Golden Globe® Award nominee and multiplatinum R&B legend Mary J. Blige release her 13th studio album, STRENGTH OF A WOMAN, via EMI Music Australia. Featuring production by DJ Camper, Bam, Hit-Boy, and KAYTRANADA, the highly anticipated release will feature collaborations with Kanye West, Quavo (of Migos), DJ Khaled and Missy Elliot amongst others.
The album’s latest single, “Love Yourself,” features vocals from Kanye West as well as production by DJ Camper.
The single once again proves Blige to be at the top of her game, displaying the songstress’ signature R&B sound while delivering yet another powerful and soulful vocal performance.
“Love Yourself” follows the successful tracks “U + Me (Love Lesson)” and “Thick Of It.” The latter marks a career milestone for Blige. Co-written by MJB along with Jazmine Sullivan, the song spent 16 weeks at #1 on the Urban AC Chart, marking her longest running #1 single on that chart. What’s more, “Thick Of It” climbed to #1 faster than any other song since 1995, when Whitney Houston’s “Exhale (Shoop Shoop)” reached No. 1 in its second week. Only three songs have ever reached No. 1 in 4 weeks or less (including “Exhale”). “U + ME (Love Lesson)” is currently #6 on the Urban AC Chart.
