Mary J. Blige is ready to talk about it.  And by 'it', you know we mean her divorce drama!  Check out her new song "Thick of It" inside...

With the circus that was that Apple sit-down with Hillary Clinton behind her, MJB is focusing on her brand new single.

Y'all know she's at her best when she has some drama to sing about.  And after this ish with Kenduthat just went down, we know she's about to be on one.

"This song is so personal it's almost painful to let it out," says Blige. "I don't hold back though, it's not who I am and there's no way I am going to start changing now."

"We all deal with love and the emotions that we get tangled up in, and we gotta survive, grow and remain honest to our best selves,"
she says. "I feel that with this song and it's the first one off this album I've been immersing myself in for 2 years now. Music just saves me no matter what in life is happening."

"Thick of It" -- which is co-written by Jazmine Sullivan -- will appear on her forthcoming full-length album, Strength Of A Woman, landing later this year.  Get the full song HERE, and a snippet of her performing it live recently below:

 

Mary's also set to hit the road on the King + Queen of Hearts World Tour with Maxwell in November. Until then, get into the hurt-but-pushing-through-that-ish Mary we all love with the "Thick of It" lyrics below:

Mary J. Blige

"Thick Of It"

---

Love aint just black and white

Aint that simple

It gets hard to tell who'S wrong or right

 When It's dark with us

I swear I barely see the light

Should I stick it out?

Are you worth this fight?

Are we worth this fight?

 

Cuz I aint no quitter babe

And I be damned if all these years I let you

diss me babe

I was there when no one wanted to stay with

you baby

You know I deserve more than this

I do

 

Chorus

So tell me who

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

 

So tell me

who'S gonna love

You like I do

Who will you trust

I gave you too much

Enough is enough

Now were in the

Now we're in the thick of it

 

What a hell of a year

If I make it through hell and I come out alive

I got nothing to fear

No more crying and trying

And bring back this loving when nothing is

here

Let me be clear I wasn't perfect

But this shit aint worth it

I'm done with the mess

I confess on the stress

And I know Ima look back and call it a blessing

 

Cuz I aint no quitter babe

But I be damned if all these years

I let you diss me babe I was there

when no one wanted to stay with you baby

You know I deserve more than

this I do 

 

Chorus

So tell me

who 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

 

So tell me who

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

We¹re in the thick of it

 

 

 

 

Bridge

Boy you had someone who really loved you

(boy you had someone who really loved you)

Should have held on held on real tight now

 (held on tight)

And she placed no other one above you

(and she placed no one above you)

But you didn't want to treat her right now

 

Should've let her go

Should've let her go

Oh no oh, oh no oh

Now I'm letting go

Now I'm letting go

Oh no oh, oh no oh

 

Chorus
