It appears Mary J Blige has taken her talents across the pond to record her forthcoming studio album.

After a string of collaborations in the last year with two of London’s hottest acts, Disclosure and Sam Smith, the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul has apparently embarked on a month long pilgrimage to London culminating in the release of “Mary J Blige: The London Sessions.”

During a recent interview with British newspaper The Guardian, Blige opened up about her creative process for the 10-track opus.

“Our idea was to become part of London,” she revealed, “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 in it the way I have this time.

“To make records from the London-scene perspective…The music is free over here the way it used to be in the States. Artists are just free to do what they love. Listening to the radio you can hear the freedom. The music is living and breathing – you can hear that from Adele’s last album. It was massive – a big deal. But she did what she loved.”

    I am not a fan of her music but I have always admired her hustle and grind and her dedication to her fans. She has earned the right to be considered iconic and labeled as the Queen of Hip Hop!
