Next week, Mary J. Blige’s “The London Sessions” is set to be released, much to the excitement of music lovers everywhere. Talk of her 13th studio album is trending this Sunday, November 30, 2014, the Idolator News reports, with the track already called a “soulful” installment. Fans have been waiting months to hear her songs — with new details being provided this afternoon — while the brilliant diva noted that London is simply a wonderful place to be when it comes to writing music.
This December 2, U.S. retailers will have Mary J. Blige “The London Sessions” available for purchase. The new album, which is the 13th from the star, is expected to be a massive success. The iconic R&B singer has been working closely with studio artists Emeli Sande and Naughty Boy. Together, the group is combining their talents to create “Pick Me Up,” one of the most anticipated tracks.
Some details are still being kept for release day this Tuesday, but “Pick Me Up” is expected to be perhaps Blige’s most buoyant numbers from the project. The soulful star has allegedly made such an upbeat song that listeners were recently caught jamming to the music at a London club. Needless to say, the crowd seemed quite excited to hear it, and it stands as an ideal track for a party night out with friends.
“London is always fun,” Blige goes on to add after featuring the song for audiences for the very first time. “‘Pick Me Up’ is all straight English club scene.”
According to the Huffington Post on the Mary J. Blige “The London Sessions” album, the skillful diva is working with a number of writers and producers. In addition to the aforementioned Emeli Sande, even Sam Smith is said to have added in his musical expertise for the studio listings. While “The London Sessions” will include dance numbers like “Pick Me Up,” the press release notes that it is certainly not a fully upbeat music record.
Fans of Blige will be hearing a lot of the singer’s soulful, R&B voice on the album as well. With help from Sam Smith, who helped write “Therapy” and “Not Loving You,” the new songs featured on “The London Sessions” is said to present listeners with a brand new way to appreciate Mary as an artist, a woman, and a visionary. “Whole Damn Year” and “Right Now” are also collaborations made with the help of Naughty Boy, and expected to bring out a personal side of the star.
Are you looking forward to listening to Mary J. Blige “The London Sessions?” The album is set for official release this Tuesday, December 2, so fans of the R&B diva should be sure to pick up a copy for themselves.
