Mary J. Blige ‘Stronger’ Than Ever on New Album


What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Mary J. Blige has been through the storm and is singing about it on her new album.

The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul will release her 9th studio album Stronger on November 24. The first single, “The One,” features Drake and can be seen in a new AT&T ad airing now.

“The album represents who and what I am right now,” MJB said on set of the commercial. “I’m a stronger human being after all the growing pains. It’s about life, love, change, strength—mostly really knowing who you are and being confident in that.”

The follow-up single will be the title track, “Stronger,” which can also be found on the soundtrack to More Than a Game. The documentary about NBA star LeBron James’ high school days in Akron, Ohio, opens October 2 in select theaters, while the soundtrack arrives September 22.

A version of “Stronger” featuring vocals from Chris Brown leaked last month. Listen below.

    Who sang the song better .. Mary J Blige or Keri Hilson ???
    Hmmmmm let me guess !!!
    A 9 time Grammy winner and Golden Globe nominee who invented a musical genre every one do today and a consistant platinum seller for the past 18 years ..
    Or a new chick in the game who biggest record relyed on Lil Waynes hot 16 bars .. Hmmm

  16. Jay

    Nobody can sing this song like Mary J period! She sings with so much power and passion…I get chills!

    and don’t make me laugh, oh to late lol I’ve heard both versions and Mary sings this waaaay better. not just vocally, but with more CONVICTION! When she says I’m stronger, I believe her. And I know for sure SHE would kill it live!!!

    This is one of my favorite MJB records! Can’t wait for the album!

    nah keri is class. her version is more chilled whereas mary j’s is just hoarse and painful to listen to.don’t get me wrong, she’s legend but on this track keri takes it.


  20. TRACIE

    This song makes me cry. Mary just has a way of singing from her soul. We don’t know who wrote this song….does it matter, it’s beautiful regardless.
