Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, Mary J Blige has been on tour with rap god NAS but has been able to squeeze out time to hit the studio and record new music. The new song, “Know” was released on Thursday reminds us why Blige is the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul.
We may eventually know whether she wrote that song during the tour or if it was in the archives of unreleased music. For now, we look set to enjoy her iconic vocals that take us back to her 1994 album My Life.
Mary J Blige voices in powerful testimony of triumph and struggle in “Know”. Singing the lyrics “My snapback’s real / Still thick in these jeans / I ain’t missin’ no meals… / They just don’t know how many times I lost just so I could win,”
For some time now, we have known that she has been preparing an album “My Life II (Act 2)” to be released pretty soon. She categorically said “July” the last time she was quizzed on when the album would drop.
While on the summer Royalty Tour with Legendary NAS, the duo collaborated on a single “Thriving”. J Blige is just on rampage right now. The Bronx actress is also going to hit the screens in new season of TV series Power.
As Mary J Blige continues to lose some street vibes, her music remains personal, emotional and spiritual. So while you recline waiting for her new album you could whet your appetite with “KNOW”.
