Stronger

Album: Music Inspired by More Than a Game (2009)
  • This is the title track from American R&B and Soul recording artist Mary J Blige's ninth studio album.
  • The song was originally earmarked to be the official second single from Blige's album until it was changed to "Good Love." However it was released as the lead single from Kristopher Belman's documentary about basketball star LeBron James More Than a Game. The track was described in publicity materials for the movie as a "heartfelt richly textured ballad that embodies the emotions that are revealed throughout this amazing film."
  • Blige said of Stronger in an interview with Rap-Up.com: "The album represents who and what I am right now. I'm a stronger human being after all the growing pains. It's about life, love, change, strength—mostly really knowing who you are and being confident in that."
  • Blige performed this on The Late Show with David Letterman in 2009.
