Mary J. Blige, one of the most commanding R&B vocalists of the ’90s, is out to reclaim her legacy. After a string of irredeemably bland albums over the past decade, the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul is on tour in support of her latest release, “Strength of a Woman,” an album recorded amid the turmoil of her recent divorce. She performs at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland on Saturday, Sept. 9, bringing with her the bold heartbreak tracks “Thick of It” and “U + Me (Love Lessons).” This year also marks the 25th anniversary of Blige’s breakthrough album, “What’s the 411?,” bringing things full circle with classic jams like “Real Love” and “You Remind Me.
