Mary J Blige’s new album releasing 12/1//14 The London Sessions #TheLondonSessions #O2O

Disclosure:  I participated in the Mary J Blige The London Sessions album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided a free album to review but all opinions are my own.

Aaaah, Mary J.  She is just a legend. I remember listening to her music as far back as the '90s and she just made some amazing music. Summers down by the beach with Mary J are amazing memories for me. I have to say I love it when one of the world’s most talented artists like Mary J. just shake it up a bit and create something you would never expect, but just totally LOVE?

I can't believe that it is almost already here. December 2, 2014 is the day Mary J Blige’s The London Sessions will be released so everyone can hear it. I was so excited that I had the opportunity to get a sneak peek and listen to it early since I got a private download of this amazing album.  Mary J Blige recorded this album in London, collaborating with some of music’s hottest new stars including Sam Smith, Disclosure, and Emeli Sandé.  Mary’s trademark emotional, strong, uplifting messages are delivered to her fans with a novel and modern touch.

Over the years she has released eight multi-platinum albums, received nine Grammy Awards + 31 nominations, a 2012 Golden Globe nomination, and four American Music Awards. Mary J Blige, the songmistress is truly a superstar around the world. If you are reading this, you know she has a super loyal fan base.  Once you listen to Mary J, you love her forever. 

Ooops, she did it again. She has another amazing album. But not just another album....Mary J. Blige has done it different this time by hopping on a plane to London to collaborate with some of this decade’s most amazing UK musical talent – including Disclosure, Eg White, Emile Sandé, Jimmy Napes, Naughty Boy, SAM ROMANS and Sam Smith. Then she went and recorded a new studio album, The London Sessions. This unbelievable new collection will be released December 2 on Capitol Records.  Capitol Music Group Chairman Steve Barnett says, "The London Sessions is a fantastic album; another step forward for this great and enduring artist, and I am thrilled that she is now an important member of our Capitol Records family.”  As for Mary J, she says, “It’s all about the London Music scene and I’m so excited to have been part of it, to record my album.” The songs are fun, therapeutic and soulful. This is a beautiful change for me and I’m proud of what we have done here.”   

Mary is an open book with her emotions and experiences to her fans and that is one of the reasons we love her so much. The London Sessions is, number one, the bravest thing, and number two, just so honest,” says Smith, who co-wrote lead single, “Therapy,” with Blige and Eg White (Adele, Florence + The Machines, James Blunt). Disclosure adds, “It’s the reason that people like Mary are so successful – they’re just not afraid to change what they do completely.”   This fearlessness propelled Blige to London’s thriving musical community, who embraced her fully and helped her create an album that displays the true evolution of an artist.  Each of the collaborators worked with Blige to create a new body of work driven by her one-of-a-kind voice. The results are altogether thrilling.
