R&B legend Mary J. Blige has announced the dates of her highly-anticipated “Strength of a Woman” tour, which comes on the heels of the release of her 13th studio album of the same name.

“Strength of a Woman” debuted April 28 at the top of Billboard’s R&B chart. Blige, who reportedly is going through a divorce from her longtime manager, has long written songs about her own personal hardships. The new album has already been hailed by critics as empowering, and a reflection of Blige’s staying power in the music industry. It was produced by DJ Camper, Bam, Hit-Boy, and KAYTRANADA, and includes guest appearances by Quavo (of Migos), DJ Khaled, Missy Elliot and Kanye West, who lends vocal support on the single “Love Yourself.”
