Mary J. Blige reunites with Jazmine Sullivan, Darhyl Camper on new single “Thick of It”

7 Oct


Mary J. Blige has liberated her new single online.

“Thick of It” is now available for download via iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, Tidal and all other digital streaming platforms.

The track was co-written by Jazmine Sullivan, who previously teamed up with Blige on the Jerry Duplessis and Arden Altino-produced “I Want You.”

Sullivan’s songwriting resume boasts further works with Christina Milian (“Twisted”), Jennifer Hudson (“I’m His Only Woman”), Monica (“Until It’s Gone”), Jessica Sanchez (“Drive By”) and Tamia (“Still Love You”).

Production duties on “Thick of It” were handled by Darhyl “DJ” Camper, who also teamed up with Blige on the Sam Dew-assisted “Self Love.”

Other notable credits by Camper include Tamar Braxton’s “Raise the Bar” [Epic], Keyshia Cole’s “Trust and Believe” [Geffen], Mariah Carey’s “Dedicated” [Def Jam] and Nicki Minaj’s “Favorite” [Cash Money].

Blige, on the other hand, is expected to release her upcoming album “Strength of a Woman” later this year via Universal Music Group / Capitol Records.

The highly-anticipated project – featuring additional alliances with Kanye West and Hit-Boy – serves as the follow-up to 2014’s “The London Sessions,” which peaked to number nine on the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart.
