Listen to Mary J. Blige's New Single "Thick of It"

Listen to Mary J. Blige's New Single "Thick of It"

Despite a few ups and downs, Mary J. Blige has certainly not stopped doing what she does best. And in addition to her new Apple Music talk show, "The 411," guest starring on "How to Get Away With Murder," and her other adventures, she has added a new single to the mix.

"Thick of It" details a rocky relationship with the lyrics:

"Who's gonna love you like I do
Who will you trust
I gave you too much
Enough is enough
Now we're in the thick of it."

"Being Mary J. Blige is real," she told Entertainment Weekly, "It's traumatic, and it's beautiful. Because my life, I actually have to live out what I'm singing." And this heartfelt ballad, as previewed above, certainly proves just that.

With a full album in the works, Blige has certainly kept busy. Listen to the full version of the single by streaming it on Spotify and Apple Music or purchasing from iTunes and Google Play.
