Song of the Day - Therapy - Mary J Blige

I am very excited about Mary J. Blige's newest project, The London Sessions.  The concept of the album is simple: delve into the famously talented and unique culture that exists on the other side of the Pond. specifically London, and to mine the local talents that do their thing over there and create a whole new MJB sound.  Intriguing, right?  Well, for the project, the singer lived and worked in London for about a month over the summer and collaborated with the likes of, as you can see above, Disclosure, Emeli Sandé, Sam Smith, and others.  Judging from this first single, I am eager to find out what the rest is going to sound like.

The debut single to from the project, which is due out late November/early December, is Therapy, co-written by Sam Smith. I liked it the first time I heard me it's got kind of a beatnik vibe to it and of course Mary's vocals, which can do just about anything great, make it a killer of a tune and quite different from other things she's done.The song was released last Tuesday and you can get it on iTunes by clicking the link to the left.  In the meantime, check out Therapy...
