Mary J. Blige is back to give more lessons in love.
The R&B icon has unleashed her brand new single, “U + Me (Love Lesson),” off her forthcoming album Strength of a Woman.
Continuing with the inspiration from her divorce, MJB calls out her ex-husband on the mid-tempo breakup jam. Reflecting on the end of their relationship she sings: “Every time I think of the lies you told to me / Make it easy for me to leave … You plus me wasn’t the best thing / In too deep with our imperfections / Not always good but I stay on my feet.”
The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul is certainly back to the sounds and feelings that built her legendary brand or authentic, emotion filled songs in the ’90s. Her 13th studio album Strength of a Woman is due out later this year.
