It’s not quite time to load up your Christmas shopping list, but singer Mary J. Blige is already planning a gift for fans.
The Queen of Hip Hop Soul has announced that she will release her first ever holiday album, A Mary Christmas, in October, USA Today reports.
It’s also the singer’s first new project since 2011’s My Life II: The Journey Continues Act 1.
You can read the rest over at Essence.com.
Do you think she’ll record some new Christmas tunes to go along with some covers of ones we already know and love? Mariah Carey has longtime been the “Christmas album queen,” but I’d definitely be interested in hearing what Mary does for a holiday album.
What about you?
