Mary J. Blige: Strength of a Woman Tour/Lalah Hathaway

When: Wed., Aug. 2, 8 p.m. 2017

In recent years, young pop stars like Hailee Steinfeld and Justin Bieber have taken to the airwaves with singles called “Love Myself” and “Love Yourself,” respectfully. But it makes a whole lot more sense for an artist like Mary J. Blige to tout a song titled “Love Yourself,” a track that can be found on her latest album, Strength of a Woman (also the name of her current tour). The track isn’t a thinly-veiled take on self-pleasure or telling others to get lost; here, you believe her advice that life is about learning to love yourself before anything else can come. She’s a grown-ass 46-year-old woman, after all. Ever since bursting onto the scene with 1992’s What's the 411?, Blige has grown and matured in her musicality. Yet this Queen of Hip-hop Soul remains, thankfully, as honest and as strong as ever. (Laura Morrison)
