Mary J Blige

R&B Diva Mary J Blige dropped the music video for her woman scorned song titled "Thick Of It".

Mary pours her raw emotions into this breakup song about her bitter divorce from estranged husband Kendu Isaacs.

Isaacs outraged women everywhere when he demanded $129,000 a month in spousal support from Mary.

Many of Mary's fans begged her to drop a new breakup song, and she didn't disappoint.

"If I make it through hell / and I come out alive / I got nothing to fear," she raps.

    "No more crying and trying to bring back the lovin'
    When nothing is here
    Let me be clear: I wasn't perfect
    But this shit ain't worth it
    I'm done with the mess
    I confess under stress
    And I know I'm gonna look back
    And call it a blessing…"

  • @djangothegod

    Those background vocals...

  • Irony

    I don't want her sad, but this sucks balls. That damn key change with transitioning (posing). The rapping, struggling mezzo its a no go! Apparently she didn't love him like she did that Haley boy.

  • NegroHummus

    I love that blonde bob cut. Go ahead MJB and do your thing. Sucks that this happened to her but I called it years ago when he was managing her finances and she had folks coming for her legally. Walk away with the lesson and press forward. You can never truly know anyone.

  • hi-liter

    Yeah I agree the instrumentals are all over the place.

  • Irony

    Not if you're really feeling them. In this time I guess you have to live life with no regrets.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Whether its soon or not my ass gotta go too. And its only been 5-6 months. I aint looking forward to it. He on other hand is excited like hell.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    He always gave me a shady vibe. Didn't trust his ass from jump.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I don't think so. Go for it

  • Sucker Free

    The rules are...there are no rules

  • 88

    Blonde hair is a plaque.

  • NegroHummus

    im not to sure if i want to go yet. she isn't pushing the issue too much, but i think she'll be disappointed if i don't go.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Love, love LOVE this album!

  • Irony

    Take your ass if you like her. What other plans do you have?

  • NegroHummus

    I always thought the invites would come after a year or two. im not in the mood for all the grilling when I dont even know her that well myself.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    If you guys are getting serious, I think you should go.

  • Irony

    I know how classy of a lady you are please leave the Colt at home.

  • NegroHummus

    never one to do that but they got a big ass fam. that dinner gonna be too traditional for my tastes. still undecided

  • NegroHummus

    last week she told me her mom made a comment about bringing that new guy friend of yourn up to meet me. so she figured x-giving would be the best time to go cause of the time off. im not really feeling it tho

  • Irony

    Is that Monica's intro to "Mustnta been paying atension..." That beat belongs somewhere.

  • Karma WhO

    i was not rooting for mary's relationship to fail in ANY way..but i KNEW some bomb ass music was gonna come out of this! Prayin God heals your heart mary! <3

  • Lisa daniels

    Because ninja was suppose to pay the taxes, he spent it.

  • @djangothegod

    Sounds a little dated.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I dont do well with the fom-lees of men. Esp. the females. I try to avoid meeting anyone of substance for a long long time. You can meet mine. But I dont FEEL like being bothered with the opinions of your auntie nem. Your female cousins. Your granny. In this case my boo mom is deceased.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Go with your gut. First mind never leads wrong.

  • DeeFromLA

    I love when she puts this wig on. Mary I pray you are working with someone who will steer your career back on track, and that you find a man with his own. If it doesn't work, do a Mariah and get paid for "inconvenience". You deserved better.

  • hi-liter

    It definitely sounds familiar.

  • iWasteTime

    I wish Jasmine would have kept this song for herself.
    I see where it's going Mary and I'm ready for it

  • @djangothegod

    We always played Spades and drank Budweiser at my stephather's family house.

    Real country, like Little House On the Prairie.

    Kerosene heat and all that.

  • Irony

    Well take your Colt 45 and enjoy yourself, because no one else's opinion matters. #DrunkFamilyGatheringsMadder

  • Irony

    Date and have fun! Don't take this or yourself too seriousy!

  • NegroHummus

    i just wanted to go to the crib and chill with fam...which means doing naythin but eating, watching the game, lounging and sleeping. for some reason that sounds like the better option

  • Cares4uWishElectionwasover

    Well if you not feeling, you should not go, because your spirit will give off bad energy.

    Why arent you feeling it..curious

  • Irony

    Eat at both places! Stop thinking too much into it. Then when its over take herto the crib and plow that thang.

  • NegroHummus

    i just feel like we should get to know each other more before we mingle with relatives. dont want a situation where she turns into a different person around them and i get turned off. thats gone be a long ass drive back home.

  • NegroHummus

    im trying to really consider her feelings, but im so set in my ways. but i got 2 weeks so imma brain storm it out tho.

  • NegroHummus

    i dont but damn im so torn.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Only question is who made the tata salad?

  • NegroHummus

    her people live in hampton va so imma be way outta my element

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    She looks like a madame

  • NegroHummus

    isn't anything negative, just really dont want to go. may sound selfish or immature but thats how i feel about it

  • NegroHummus

    hopefully somebody over 60 lol

  • Irony

    Use it as a learning experience. Show them saddity folks how to have a good time!-Bernie Mac

  • NegroHummus

    dont get me started on that booshee ish..i pick on her all the time about it, but she hood where it matters lol

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Make your next move your best move.
    Have a discussion about it.
    If you truthfully see yourself with her, I say give it a shot and go.

    If she's displayed behavior which made you look at her with a different perspective, fallback homie.

  • NegroHummus

    nah she pretty solid, but meeting the family is pretty serious especially around mainstream holidays. its not gone leave much room for playing around with her after this, so im a lil nervous.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    That's the whole point.

    Get right or get left.

    If she's a good catch, don't let her go!

  • KcoolMuziq

    She's going back to her ghetto fabolous days.....

  • Darkandlovely617?

    And this is exactly why I ain't told my mama about the gentleman I'm seeing.

  • Cares4uWishElectionwasover

    Keep ur hindpots home, said with a smile.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Cause he know he got a good catch ?????

  • Li

    Sometimes I wonder why singers put out a heartache song, a breakup or revenge love song so quick after the two split. Seems like a record company money grab and they should wait MONTHS before singing about their heartache or whatever happened.

  • Finding Forever…

    Wellllll...I soooo very THANK YOU for this Saturday's show. My sister & I rocked wit'cha a$$ for the whoooole hour plus. No disappointment. Now Maxwell I think...well know I could have enjoyed in a more intimate setting. Beautiful voice but yup, I'd take it a lounge of sorts. Not mad at Thick Of It either...my mom (nephews) on thee hand, wellllll...

  • iscream

    Can't wait to see her Thursday at the Garden. Hurry up and drop that album. Only A legend can go on tour with no new album out.

  • NegroHummus

    im talk to her tonight and make sure she serious about me going. Dont want to make a move, when she may just be throwing it out there on a whim

  • NegroHummus

    aint it cray, they must really want her ass married w/ children if moms this excited after 4 months...at my age this got me feeling like im 23 again in my first serious relationship lmao

  • NegroHummus

    in a past life i was able *le sigh*

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Honestly:

    1) to shut her mama up

    2) it would not be polite to not ask you

    3) she thinks that you're the one and she wants to let everyone know

  • NegroHummus

    sounds about right..ill keep yo posted iffen i decide to................not go lmaooo

  • yelpforhelp

    I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Renee26

    Needs a different producer for sure

  • Full Monty

    $129,000 per month and no little feet running around. Negro what! He just as ridiculous as Mariah wanting 50 Mil and was never even married to the man. LOL! You wasn't shooting in the gym though!

  • Renee26

    dude just break it off now....reading all your comments sounds like even if you do like her you are afraid of commitment or even taking things to a different level. You don't want to go and if you tell her you're not going you are going to get "attitude" and you don't like women with attitudes (all of them) so you will stop dealing with her anyway. Just cut the cord now and stop playing mind games with women. There's apparently something being said by you to her that makes her feel comfortable enough to mention you to her mother. We don't tell mommas about the D...so either sh*t or get off the pot.

  • Renee26

    They're coming to my city in a few weeks....I can't wait! Pulling out my blonde wig and thigh high boots...I don't even care about Maxwell being there lol

  • Renee Bee

    I do too. I feel her pain. I need to hurry up and learn the words.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I want to give Mary a big cyber hug.

    Sorry that she's going through this but maybe something good like an album can be produced from all of the pain.

  • Tynamight

    No time for healing... Str8 to the studio...

  • IAmLegend

    This is her hottest song in YEARS! Its already flying up the charts.

  • IAmLegend

    They said her album is going to flop. 35k is what its projected to sell. Thats sad.

  • Renee Bee

    Slayage! ?

  • YES I SAID IT…

    All I gotta say is, I like Mary J but I do not like this song, ok now bye!

  • CapricornIce

    This my jam.

  • CapricornIce

    She said she already had recorded this song, she changed a couple of lyrics.

  • Joshua McDowell

    I wish Mary would stick to alto. She tries too hard to be an soprano.

  • Joshua McDowell

    She was vulnerable and was trying to overcome some personal demons. He came along like he was her knight in shining armor. He took advantage of her and the state that she was in at the time

  • CapricornIce

    Me either Dub. I am not kissing your mom/sister/cousin/aunt ass to date you.

  • Joshua McDowell

    Jazmine Sullivan wrote this song. I didn't know that.

  • Joshua McDowell

    The song is alright but it's not her best. I know she can come way harder than this. She needs to link up with Babyface again and do another song like Not Gon Cry.

  • Michelle

    She still the Queen

  • NegroHummus

    it isnt that deep. im just tryna find a way to make not going easier is all.

  • Rain

    You should just talk to her about it and y'all decide on another time maybe after the holidays for you to meet some of her family. I mean, I think it is okay to ease in to meeting them. Seems like a lot at once, immediate and extended family especially when you have not even gotten to meet the immediate family and spent a little time with just them.

    I want Mary happy. I don't wish pain or hurt on anyone. She's going through so much right now. Probably never thought at this age or season in life she would be getting divorced. Life is so hard sometimes, i pray she overcomes this and not succumb to drug and alcohol abuse.

  • Tonia Hannah

    Videos are so boring to me. Love Mary but hate that hair.

  • Finding Forever…

    Do gooooo & enjoy yourself too. I SURE did...LOL. Crazy that you should mention that about Maxwell because soooo many people (more than I would have ever expected for a non-free concert) got up & bounced after her performance. She rocked the ISH outta some boots & a blonde wig so you'll fit RIGHT in :). Ro James did EXCELLENT. I saw her last with Jay-Z & she was even better NOW. She did about an hour & 20 of straight HITS. I Never Sat. Sadly on Maxwell I sat thee ENTIRE time :(. As I mentioned, he would probably be better in a more intimate setting other than an arena. Someone commented on Mary's ig that he forgot his words, LLS. We didn't have that problem here but he kept saying BALTIMORE...
    BALTIMORE. Like huuuh we know where we are, sir. I think he was just excited (grateful) to be on tour again after the hiatus, I guess. Pleasssse keep me posted tho, on your show & your likes/dislikes. Sorry for the length...

  • JackieBrown

    Right, classic NY Mary !

  • Allihave2say

    Mary's music, message and image have proven she is stunted. She hasn't matured or grown in any way. She is another Beyonce without the glitter. Mary is too old to be dressed in club chic and throwing hip hop hands in videos. Her music really never has an uplifting message.

  • Blue

    Kinda late with this post but I'm glad to see it. Jazmine Sullivan co-wrote this. Good track. I heart Mary.

  • kekeb

    I hope he doesn't get any money from this song. . . I like MJB, and I wish her well
