New Song: Mary J.Blige – ‘This Christmas’

Published: Thursday 19th Sep 2013 by David

October 15th may mark the release of Mary J.Blige‘s new Christmas album, ‘A Mary Christmas’, but that hasn’t stopped the ‘Be Without You’ belle from releasing one of its numbers a little early to date.

A cover of Donny Hathaway‘s classic ‘This Christmas‘, some may agree that Blige’s vocal lacks the feeling of joy and euphoria the cut’s lyrics should have forced out of her, but will still make for an enjoyable listen for any hoping to get in the Holiday spirit well before December.

Listen below!

    The only Christmas album I’ll ever buy is Mariah Carey’s.

    Christmas music never goes out of style cuz artists can do so many renditions with the classics. Black ppl do Christmas music justice.

    Mary has a great voice. Always has but this right here seems a bit bland. I think she coulda made it her own instead of just sounding like a karaoke cover. GREAT Christmas covers have standards that have been set by Destiny’s Child, Mariah Carey, and the Jackson 5…

      Girl bye, Mary J is the only one who sings about struggles whilst struggling to sing. Those flat notes are not it.

        Who are you to talk about vocals when you stan for Kathy Perry ?
        Mary is a f****** legend ! She gives raw emotions everytime… Something you will never know

        …and Britney Spears, Justin Bieber and Rihanna. LOL
        Loveshit has no room to comment on vocals. Her whole music collection is comprised of off-key notes and autotune.

    Very bland. I know everyone doesn´t have Mariah´s brilliant musicianship, even when it comes to Xmas music, but this right here sounds like a good karaoke session. I´m not that familiar with Xmas albums apart from MC´s and a few more, but damn, for example Celine Dion´s one that I bought back in the day is stunning too. Mary is the type of artist-voice that is good in her genre, but can´t do other genres justice. I bet Kelly Clarkson´s will sounds way better (and I don´t care about her).

    Mariah is so overrated
