*“Who’s gonna love you like I do?” Mary J. Blige belts in the video for her new single, “Thick of It.”
Sporting a tilted leather Yankees hat, the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul pours hurt and anger into the Jazmine Sullivan-penned first single from her forthcoming album.
The song about overcoming heartbreak includes the lines: “I be damned if all these years I let you dis me babe / I was there when no one wanted to stay with you baby/ You know I deserve more than this,” she sings.
Blige recently filed for divorce from her husband and manager Martin “Kendu” Isaacs, after 12 years of marriage.
Since the split, MJB has interviewed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for her Apple Music talk show The 411, scored an appearance on ABC’s “How to Get Away with Murder” and is currently on tour with Maxwell.
