The reports of Mary J. Blige’s demise were greatly exaggerated. Despite the fact that both of her two 2014 album releases, “The London Sessions” and the “Think Like a Man Too” soundtrack went widely overlooked, the Queen of Hip Hop soul has proven she’s still got it.
Evidence of that fact is that her current single “Thick of It” has just reached the number 1 spot on Urban A/C radio. She’s had plenty of number one singles in the past, but this one must be extra special. Additionally, the song has broken into the Top 30 on the even more challenging Urban Radio format.
The DJ Camper produced and Jazmine Sullivan written “Thick of It” will be the first single from her upcoming thirteenth studio album “Strength of a Woman”. The project is set to release this December.
Additionally, Blige is currently out on the road touring alongside Maxwell for “King and Queen of Hearts” World Tour set to take them through the rest of the year.
