MARY J BLIGE – THE LONDON SES­SIONS

DNA Magazine - - MUSIC -

If Amy Wine­house could sing about Re­hab, why can’t Mary J sing about go­ing to Ther­apy two times a day? That’s the open­ing track to this al­bum that ef­fec­tively restarts Mary’s ca­reer after she fell into a slump of dull-songs-sung­well for her last few records. On lucky al­bum #13 she has en­listed the help of chart-wel­come Brit kids like Sam Smith, Emile Sandé and Dis­clo­sure and boy did MJB bring it all. Not Loving You is a power bal­lad to match No More Drama from her back cat­a­logue, while Right Now has Dis­clo­sure’s post-mod­ern dance prints all over it, which is a great thing. This is eas­ily the most ex­cit­ing and in­no­va­tive record of her ca­reer yet.
