Mary J. Blige's THE LONDON SESSIONS - Music Review for One2One Network
I have always been a Mary J. Blige fan. I have loved her music since the 90's. "What's the 411?" and "My Life" launched her career into the global superstar she is today. "What's going down?" was one of my favorite songs! She has always had a very emotional element of style in her music and as a woman who has gone through hardship and heartbreak, I connected to her music on a deep level. Her music has gotten me through some tough times! So I was happy to get the opportunity to receive her new album "The London Sessions" before it officially comes out on December 2nd.
"The London Sessions" includes classic Mary J. Blige style, heavily passionate and sentimental songs, like "Therapy", "Not Loving You" (which is my favorite in this album) and "Worth My Time". "Not Loving You" is my favorite because it just reminds me of the days when I listened to Mary J. Blige's songs back in the 90's. The kind of songs that touched you deeply and were perfect for those intensely emotional moments you experienced in your life.
This album is also filled with faster tempo songs like "Right Now" that are still very therapeutic and soulful.
The hip-hop industry wouldn't be the same if Mary J. Blige wasn't a part of it. She has created a great following of loyal fans who have followed her since the beginning of her career for a good reason. I realized after watching her perform "Therapy" on the AMA's last night that although she seems to be the same Mary J. Blige I grew up with (the hip-hop & soul superstar that she is) she is a happier version of her older days and I am happy for her. Although I prefer her slow songs much more than the fast ones, I am still very much a fan!! You will not be disappointed in her new album. There's a little something for everyone. Make sure to purchase "The London Sessions" when it comes out December 2nd!
