Mary J. Blige has been teasing “Thick Of It” for a while now, and today it’s finally here — along with the announcement that it’s part of her new album Strength Of A Woman.

The track was co-written with Jazmine Sullivan, and it’s a return to form for the diva, who demands the love she deserves over a beat that alternates between rich soul and modern trap.

“This song is so personal it’s almost painful to let it out,” says Blige in the press release. “I don’t hold back though, it’s not who I am and there’s no way I am going to start changing now.”

Her 13th LP is due later this year, and it might even have a Kanye collab on there. Hear the new cut below.
