Disclosure: I received a digital copy of Mary J Blige's The London Sessions in order to facilitate the review. The options expressed are my own!
I didn't know much about Mary J Blige's music until a recently, when I heard a Christmas song of hers, to be quite honest. (I think that the song had been offered through a particular coffee shop that shall remain nameless in this post.) I figured why not review a singer that I was not familiar with, and the review would not be jaded in any way! Mary J Blige newest collection of songs is out on the market as of yesterday! I love this album, I can relax to her music!
Mary J. Blige has once again confounded expectations and ventured into a new musical territory by
crossing the Atlantic to collaborate with some of this decade's most celebrated UK talent - including Disclosure, Eg White, Emile Sande, Jimmy Napes, Naughty Boy, SAM ROMANS, and Sam Smith - and recorded a new studio album, The London Sessions. I had a hard time picking just one song that I liked! I seriously enjoyed the whole album, and if you asked me which song was a favorite----I would have to tell you "Therapy" and "Nobody But You". I was playing "Nobody But You" for my Dad yesterday, and I told him that he could have dedicated "Nobody But You" to Mom.
Mary's music is "Therapy"to my my ears.
