Regal and strong: Mary J. Blige releases “Strength of a Woman” cover art, confirms release date

ABC/Fred WatkinsThe date is set. Mary J. Blige‘s highly-anticipated 13th album, Strength of a Woman, officially comes out April 28.

Not only did the “No More Drama” singer confirm the release date, she’s also unveiled the disc’s regal cover art on Instagram, featuring her sitting on a golden throne while dressed in all black.

Mary debuted the first single from the studio project, “Thick of It,” last November.  

Several big names are expected to appear on it, including Jazmine Sullivan — who told Billboard last May about their collaboration — and Kanye West
