Mary J. Blige’s Stronger with Each Tear is out today (Dec. 21), just in time to make a last-minute holiday gift for R&B fans. Blige showed up on Jimmy Kimmel’s show on Friday night (Dec. 18), where she performed a version of the Stargate-produced “I Am” from the record.
“The album represents who and what I am right now,” Blige said in an interview with Rap-Up magazine. “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.”
