Mary J. Blige is most certainly back with a new album and music video with the same name, Strength of a Woman!
As for the inspiration behind the album, Mary credits her bitter divorce battle with husband Kendu Isaacs. “It made me cry, and then I had to go sing it and cry and get through it,” Mary 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.”
