The London Sessions by Mary J Blige are deep and soulful

I loved this album. It was such an eclectic mix of tracks, that each time I played a new song I felt like it was coming from a different artist. To be honest reminded me of something between blues and motown in several places,  but also played on the R&B scene of the '90s. The deep beats and the soulful singing keeping me pumping throughout my workday. I loved it.

 Mary J Blige is a staple in my household already, her beautiful voice accompanying me through my teenage years, all the way to the end of my twenties.

This album is no different.

 According to Capitol Music Group Chairman Steve Barnett, “Mary J. Blige created a one-of-a-kind blend of hip-hop and soul that has excited fans for more than 20 years, making her one of the most successful and acclaimed artists in any genre of music. The London Sessions is a fantastic album; another step forward for this great and enduring artist, and I am thrilled that she is now an important member of our Capitol Records family.”

 It is fantastic. I loved every bit of it.  From the deep bluesy "Therapy,"  all the way to the soft piano pieces like, "Not Loving You." Each track feels like a completely different experience.

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 my own.
