Mary J. Blige is hitting the road this summer in support of her new album, Strength of a Woman. She'll be joined on the road by veteran Grammy-winning singer, Lalah Hathaway.

The trek kicks off this July, when she'll headline the Essence Festival in New Orleans and from there she'll head across the country to Atlantic City. She'll head across the pond for a few dates, in Italy, France and Switzerland among others before returning stateside and closing the tour in San Francisco on September 9.

Mary's latest explored the heartbreak she experienced during her recent split with ex and former manager, Kendu Isaacs.

“[Divorce] is not something I wanted to do, but I had no choice,” said Mary in a trailer for the documentary, The Making of A Strength of a Woman. “I’m not writing an album preaching to anyone about what they should do. I’m literally trying to heal myself through writing, singing, through some kind of way. Getting it out of my system.”
