Mary J Blige channels post-divorce heartbreak into new song “Thick Of It.”
Blige is sweeping the negativity surrounding her head-tilting interview with Hillary Clinton under the rug and getting back to doing what she does best: performing. The R&B Queen took the stage at her show in Newark, New Jersey over the weekend to sing an emotional new song titled “Thick Of It” about the events leading up to her split from soon-to-be ex-husband Kendu Isaacs.
“Love ain’t just black and white, it’s not that simple / It’s hard to tell who’s wrong or right,” she sings. “When it’s dark, I swear I can see the light / Should I stick it out? / Are you worth this fight, are we worth this fight? / You know I deserve more than this / So tell me who’s gonna love you like I do?”
Blige is putting the finishing touches on her forthcoming album out later this year. She’s also planning a world tour to promote it.
