Mary J. Blige and Nas debut new collaboration Thriving ahead of their joint tour.
Previously teased on social media, the endurance anthem is here. Mary J. Blige prefaces the song on Instagram with a Maya Angelou quote and maintains the determined energy throughout the song.
Both artists use Thriving to remind listeners that although life may not have always been easy, they maintained. Mary J. Blige sings, “we’re not just surviving, we’re thriving over here” championing her can-do attitude.
Mary J. Blige and Nas are set to hit the road July 11 beginning the Royalty Tour in West Palm Beach, Fla. The 22 stop tour takes the two industry icons to Atlanta, St. Louis, Detroit and more.
