It’s Mary J. Blige season as the queen releases a new album called, The London Sessions.
Blige traveled abroad to record her 13th album, which includes collaborations with some of today’s most celebrated U.K. musical talent, including Disclosure, Eg White, Emile Sandé, Jimmy Napes, Naughty Boy, SAM ROMANS and Sam Smith. The entire album was born in a whirlwind 20 days – 10 days writing and 10 days recording.
One of the album’s strongest tracks is, Whole Damn Year. A transparent ballad about domestic abuse and bullying.
“Winter took most of my heart/ And spring punched right in the stomach,” she sings. “Summer came looking for blood/ And by autumn, I was left with nothing.”
