Must Read: Mary J.Blige Readies Move To The UK / Calls On British Talent To Build New Album

Published: Tuesday 8th Jul 2014 by David


Ever keen to ensure her name stays above water in foreign markets, Mary J.Blige has taken the unprecedented move in plotting a move to the United Kingdom, it has emerged today.

For, after collaborating with Brit superstar Sam Smith and watching producer Naughty Boy craft chart-topping magic with ‘Next to Me’ Emeli Sande, the ‘Be Happy’ singer has set her sights on UK writing muscle to create her new album…’The London Sessions.’

Exciting news below…

‘HITS Daily Double‘ reveals:

Mary J. Blige will head to the U.K. to record an album bearing the working title The London Sessions, with Naughty Boy overseeing the project. Word is that a who’s who of the U.K.’s finest new writers, producers and neo-soul singers will be involved, though no specific names have yet been revealed. It’s unclear at this point what U.K. and U.S. labels will be releasing the album, but given the fact that Blige has spent her entire career at UMG—starting with her mega-selling debut LP, 1992’s What’s the 411?, originally released on Uptown/MCA—it would appear that a Universal label or labels will be involved.

    Global queen.

    This is why Mary is where she is today, she thinks globally. How is she doing so many wonderful things twenty years in while these other girls are being so lazy after five, six or seven?

    WeeerK Mary!

  6. Beygency July 8, 2014

    Yes! All these artists who have been in the game for years such as her need to take notes! This is how you do it! Work Mary!

      You said it all, lazy R&B artists are where they are because they are f****** lazy and will forever stay where they are because they don’t want to do the work. Even though it’s clear that not a lot of them have the huge budgets that Mary has they still can create and imagine things yet .. ugh

    The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul extends her reign.

    Something is going on with Mary ever since her “Im just Mary”(deep inside)video it seems like she has been trying to escape them they even tried to “blood oath” her during “the breakthrough” era .She would always talk about the devil trying to steal her or take her during the “no more drama”era she just said Sunday at the essence music festival “the higher the level the bigger the devil”. And I noticed how everything Mary done now musically is overlooked but yet her negative personal problems always makes headlines ie: debit, evictions, repos,lawsuits etc. And now this move either Mary like f*** it salvage what you can of this career while you can before they get me or she’s actually already down with them and this just is a plow for them to pimp or in different markets either way love Mary and wish her the best and all she does as long as she carries jesus christ with her !!!!!

      Not that deep & Mary hasn’t been musically overlooked. She’s won 3 Grammys and other awards since “the breakthrough” era & scored a multiplatinum and platinum album after that. And two gold albums, still outselling others that have #1 hits. I think it’s a matter of someone being after her and she needs to upgrade her management, but that’s a topic of discussions for another day.

    Sounds like this album could be great and push Mary back into the mainstream spotlight, I love seeing artist try different things.
