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 100% my own.
Music is an important element in all of our lives whether we care to admit it or not. During the good times, the bad times, the happy times and especially during the sad times. I am sure we can all remember a time in our lives when a “name that tune” soothed our minds or comforted our souls.
My kindred spirit, my sister from “another mother’ and all time favorite female recording artist is Mary J. Blige. She understands the many challenges that women oftentimes must go through and her music is definitely a reflection of that. Mary is an artist who is not afraid to step out of her comfort zone and do something completely different.
In this new album entitled “The London Sessions” which is being released on the 2nd of December there are some great cuts, however, ‘Therapy‘ is one that really speaks to my soul. The words in that song, “why would I spend the rest of my days unhappy…when I can go therapy two times a day” is poignant.
This is Mary’s 13th studio album, however, it was created entirely in London where she worked with artists who understood her greatness, and together they unleashed 12 tracks of awesomeness!
Mary J. Blige is a blessed soulful songstress with longevity so I know she will always create a song that will become an important element in my life.
You can pre-order the album now from iTunes and Amazon.
