R&B leading lady Mary J. Blige has released a lyric video for the brand new single, "Suitcase." Watch it above.

The simple, straightforward visuals fit perfectly with her honest and stripped-down lyrics. It's Blige's brand of female-empowering soul music. Keep it coming, Mary J.

She sings about a man whose done her wrong and the courage it takes to move on. Unloaded over a heavy beat, her vocals are as clean and emotionally-driven as we've come to expect from her. The queen of hip hop soul is officially back with the latest material since 2013's A Mary Christmas. She never disappoints.

Earlier this week, Blige collaborated with Sam Smith on his alternate version of "Stay With Me." Watch the live performance and listen to the audio stream here at Zumic.

The very accomplished songstress has recorded all the tracks for the upcoming film sequel Think Like a Man Too, where the song will be featured. The movie hits theaters on June 20th, and the soundtrack is set to release on June 17th via Epic Records. Pre-order it on Amazon.


I wonder if I took these scars
And put dirt in 'em
Would I grow me a brand new heart
Will love work again
If I keep letting you hurt me
I might have to plead insanity
‘Cause everything in me is telling me to go

'Cause I can’t keep on crying when I see ya
Messing up my make up
Thinking you gon’ change
But everything’s the same
Started keeping secrets
Got my heart in pieces
I’m about to pick myself up, and go

You gon’ wake up in the morn
And find out that I’m already gone
Got a one way ticket, here's your goodbye song
And while you’re trying to explain
I’ll be zipping up my suitcase
While you’re trying to explain
I’ll be zipping up my suitcase
While you’re trying to explain
I’ll be zipping up my suitcase

Boy, you had everything
I never thought about another man
Gave you so much control of me
Your love really had me bugging me
If I don’t let you go, you’ll just keep on hurting me more and more
‘Cause everything in me is telling me to go



One foot out the door
You won’t hurt me no more
Got my things, I’m on my way
There’s no reason for me to stay
Cause I finally see the truth
And I refuse to be used
I’m so cool on loving you
Zipping up my suitcase
