The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul is holding court as she returns with her new video for her emotional track “Thick Of It” (fun fan fact, the track was co-written by fellow R&B chanteuse Jazmine Sullivan). The video is simple, fashionable and direct. Mary is not here to play with Kendu or any of her fair weather on the fence fans who were fake happy for her newfound happiness but silently have jumped back over the fence to her revisited pain (we collectively see you all) talking about “I hate you’re getting divorced Mary but this joint fire”. I kind of wanted a little more from the video in terms of a story line but I get it, in the current state of music videos why invest so much for a video that pretty much will only get played online and Revolt TV.
If there is one thing Mary knows it is fashion, she is serving that good metallic vibe and you know this era is going to be lit because she broke out the NY fitted and glossy lip. I can’t wait for this album if this song is any indication its going to be her most vulnerable since the underrated ‘Mary’. Look for her full length album Strength Of A Woman to drop before the year ends.
