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.
As I have stated before with album reviews, I rarely know what is out there in the music field and just know when it comes on that I like it. I rarely go out of my way to find music or find that song that is catching my attention. I like music though, quite a bit. Which is why I was thrilled to be able to review the upcoming album from Mary J. Blige: London Session, releasing the 2nd of December. I know I have liked a few songs of hers in the past, but again never went out of my way to find more of her or anything.
According to Capitol Music Group Chairman Steve Barnett, “Mary J. Blige created a one-of-a-kind blend of hip-hop and soul that has excited fans for more than 20 years, making her one of the most successful and acclaimed artists in any genre of music. 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.” “It’s all about the London Music scene and I’m so excited to have been part of it, to record my album,” says Blige. “The songs are fun, therapeutic and soulful. This is a beautiful change for me and I’m proud of what we have done here.”
I enjoyed this album, but wouldn’t say I’d go out my way to listen to it or buy it for someone else. Does that make sense? I’d be more than happy to have it come on the radio for me to listen to or my pandora, but owning the album wouldn’t be something I’d go for, personally.
My favorite song though from the album was Therapy (hence the title of this post). I’m including it just below here, for your listening pleasure. Its catchy and reminded me of someone, but didn’t know if I should share it with them or not. When I say it reminded me of someone, it was in a good way, they just enjoy their therapy and seems like something along the lines that they’d say.
Included in this album are the following songs:
3. Not Loving You
4. When You’re Gone
5. Right Now
6. My Loving
7. Long Hard Look
8. Whole Damn Year
9. Nobody But You
10. Pick Me Up
12. Worth My Time
