Mary J. Blige has had quite a career so far -8 multi-platinum albums, 9 Grammys (and thats from THIRTY ONE nominations!), a Golden Globe nom, and 4 AMAs! She has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide – and I had never listened to one of her albums in its entirety until I listened to The London Sessions.  And all I have to say for myself is – Why did I wait so long? She is phenomenal!  Mary J. Blige crossed the Atlantic to collaborate with some wonderful UK talents on this album – Disclosure, Eg White, Emile Sande, Jimmy Napes, Naught Boy, SAM ROMANS and Sam Smith.

The London Sessions will be released by Capitol Records on December 2nd – and I urge you to buy it (Here are some handy links to buy it on iTunes or Amazon!)  My favorite tracks on the album are Therapy and Right Now, but they are all really great songs and I am sure that if you like Mary J. Blige even a tiny bit – or if you’ve never even heard any of her stuff – you will enjoy this album.  It is definitely worth checking out!

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’s all about the London Music scene and I’m so excited to have been part of it, to record my album,” says Blige. “The songs are fun, therapeutic and soulful. This is a beautiful change for me and I’m proud of what we have done here.”

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.

You may know Idina Menzel as a Broadway great, or you may know her as the voice of Elsa from Frozen. Either way – there is no denying that she is a fantastic singer.  Holiday Wishes is a Christmas album recorded by the Tony Award winner and is now out on Warner Brothers.  (Check it out on iTunes and Amazon) The album has a bunch of classics on it – as well as Joni Mitchell’s Christmas-themed song “River”, which is one of Idina’s favorites.  The highlight of the album though, has to be the Baby It’s Cold Outisde duet with none other than Canadian crooner Michael Buble.

I am of the belief that one can never have too many Christmas albums – and this one is a great addition to my collection. (One of these days I’ll see just how many hours of Christmas music I have, but today is not that day.)  I simply love Idina’s voice (I saw her in Wicked 10 years ago!) and this is a great collection of tracks.
