Tune in and turn up

Mary J. Blige has just shared some huge, huge news. The multiple Grammy-winner took to Twitter to share the release date of a new album titled Strength of a Woman, along with the fact that it is “one of [her] most powerful albums.” It also has a tracklist that is truly out of this world.

First and foremost, Blige has revealed that there is a track with the one and only Kanye West set to appear on the record. And if he weren’t enough, the list of featured guest artists is rounded out by Missy Elliott, Kaytranada, Migos’ Quavo and DJ Khaled. So yeah, you could say it’s a high-profile album.

Strength of a Woman will be Blige’s first full-length since 2014’s live compilation The London Sessions. It is out on April 28 via Capitol Records.

If you feel like getting it “percolating while you’re waiting,” revisit the majesty of “Family Affair” below.
