Earlier this year, R&B great Mary J. Blige collaborated alongside British talentsDisclosure and Sam Smith on re-workings of tracks “F For You” and “Stay With Me.” Now, the three renew their chemistry on Mary’s latest single drop, “Right Now.” The pulsating groove features production by Disclosure and is co-written by Disclosure, Smith, and Jimmy Napes. “Right Now” is the first taste from Mary J. Blige’s forthcoming album, The London Sessions, due this fall.
Titled Mary J. Blige: The London Sessions, her 13th studio album follows the release of June’s Think Like a Man Too soundtrack, which the singer recorded in its entirety.
During an interview with British newspaper The Guardian, the Queen of Hip Hop Soul dished on the creative process for the highly anticipated album. “Our idea was to become part of London,” she said. “To really embrace the culture — to really live in it. Not that I haven’t been here before, but I’ve never had the chance to really soak it in the way I have this time.”
