Last week Mary J. Blige took to Twitter to give us our first taste of her 13th studio album, Strength of a Woman. She announced it would be packed with appearances by some of the biggest names in music — including, Kanye WestKaytranadaMissy ElliottDJ Khaled and Migos' Quavo.

While we have to wait until 28 April 28 to hear the whole thing, the legend has shared Love Yourself — her collaboration with West. As the title suggests, it's about looking out for number one, featuring life advice such as, "you gotta love yourself/ if you really wanna be with someone else/ you gotta feed yourself/ before you feed somebody else." You really couldn't ask for a pep talk from two better people.
