Mary J. Blige To Record New Album ‘The London Sessions’
Mary J. Blige is headed across the pond for her new project. After teaming with British staples Sam Smith and Disclosure, the Queen of R&B is working with their collaborator Naughty Boy for her upcoming album, reportedly titled The London Sessions, according to Hits Daily Double.
Naughty Boy is no stranger to working with powerhouse vocalists as he wrote and produced for Emeli Sande and appeared on her 2013 LP Our Version Of Events. He’s also worked with Fantasia (“Side Effects Of You”) and Rihanna (“Half Of Me”).
The soul sanger has been making her rounds. She’s clocked in the Think Like A Man Too soundtrack with “Suitcase” while her 2013 holiday album A Mary Christmas was certified gold by the RIAA with sales upwards of 500,000 copies.
