As lovers of all things R&B, we can’t believe that we’re saying this… but the R&B Queen, Mary J. Blige is going to deliver her thirteenth studio album, Strength of a Woman.
This will be Mary’s first album since 2014’s and it has been a much anticipated wait.
Following Mary’s divorce from her husband and manager Kendu Isaacs, it is already apparent this album will draw inspiration from the turmoil and heartache of the parting of ways.
Previously speaking about the album title, Blige explained that it is meant to symbolise power in the face of tribulations. “We find that strength in us to not just survive these trials, but to thrive, to live, to get something out of it to not make the same mistakes again,” she said.
