WATCH: MARY J. BLIGE SOARS IN ‘STRENGTH OF A WOMAN’ VIDEOApril 28, 2017
Mary J. Blige is in the spot tonight!
The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul is back and reaching new heights in the brand new video for her latest single “Strength of a Woman.”
It’s the title track off her new album which dropped today. This is Mary’s 13th studio album and comes 25 years after her debut record, What’s the 411?, in 1992.
In the new clip, the 46-year-old dons dark shades and a fierce patent leather coat while serving voice on the top of the U.S. Bank Tower in downtown Los Angeles.
The song deals with Mary’s resilence in the wake of her high-profile divorce from her husband of 13 years Kendu Isaacs.
“It made me cry, and then I had to go sing it and cry and get through it,” she told NPR. “But I believe that there’s a purpose for me here on this earth, and I think it’s so I can live and become these things so people can heal from them. I don’t mind the pain. I don’t mind it all, because it hurts so good. It hurts so good.”
Preach, Queen Mary! Preach!
