All hail the Queen! Today, singer Mary J. Blige released her highly anticipated thirteenth studio effort “Strength Of A Woman.” The project was a  long time coming and arrives just as the songstress is dealing with a nasty divorce from former husband/manager Kendu Isaacs. The 14 track project features guest appearances by Kanye West, Quavo (of Migos), DJ Khaled, Missy Elliott, Prince Charlez, KAYTRANDA and BadBadNotGood. The album is lead by the singles “Thick Of It” and “U + Me (Love Lesson)”. Blige wrote on Instagram that this is one of her most powerful albums and is pleased to share it with fans. Referring to the album previously, Blige stated that the project’s title is meant to symbolize power in the mist of tribulations. In addition to the album, Blige will also chronicle the emotional journey toward completing the album with the documentary “The Making Of: Strength Of A Woman.” The documentary will air on May 2 at 11 pm on VH 1. One of the most mysterious new R&B artist of 2016 has returned. H.E.R. released her self-titled debut EP in September and it quickly rose to the No. 1 spot on iTunes. It was discovered that the woman behind the voice is actually singer/songwriter Gabi Wilson, who continues to hide her appearance behind the new persona. That may change, as she has just released the single “Say It Again”, taken from her highly anticipated follow up EP “H.E.R. Vol. 2” The sleek, soulful slow jam is incredibly sultry as Gabi rides the track with a seductive delivery, promising to show her lover how naughty she can be when she wants it. “H.E.R. Vol. 2” will be released on June 2. “Say It Again” will be received when fans pre-order the EP on iTunes. A week after releasing his “That’s What I Like” remix pack, singer Bruno Mars receives a feature from rapper Ludacris in addition to PARTYNEXTDOOR and Gucci Mane for an all star remix for his latest smash single. This week, “That’s What I Like” helped Bruno tie singer Justin Timberlake for the most No. 1 singles on the pop chart as a male solo artist. Congratulations Bruno.
