Mary J. Blige filed for divorce from her husband of 12 years, Kendu Isaacs, and now, the first post-breakup single from the Queen of Hip-Hop soul has been released. Take a listen to “Thick of it” here.
Mary talked about the song in a recent interview:
“If you know me, you know what I’m dealing with right now,” she said. “The ‘Thick of It’ is the divorce and all this stuff that’s going on right now. It’s the heaviness of it and the whole thing…That’s where I am. I’m in the middle of a divorce and it doesn’t feel good. It feels terrible, but I have strength to get through and I get through by any means necessary.”
