As promised, The Queen of Hip-hop Soul Mary J. Blige this past Friday (Feb. 17) dropped her latest single, "U + Me (Love Lesson)," off her forthcoming Strength of a Woman album.
The new single reflects on Blige's recent breakup and follows the part of "Thick Of It," Bliges first single that discussed the end of her 12-year marriage to Martin Isaacs. "The lies you told to me make it easy for me to leave,” she sings. "You plus me wasn’t the best thing."
"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."
