Mary-J.-Blige-on-The-Breakfast-Club

Mary J. Blige has been in the game for over 20 years and has seen the ups and down of the industry. Through all of her struggles though, one thing remains the same: the fact that she’s still on top.

Sitting down with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club to discuss the release of her upcoming album The London Sessions early Monday morning, the Queen – who prefers that over being called ‘The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul” – made the crew feel as if they hit the big time.

Taking time to discuss her now legendary collaboration with Jay Z on his debut album, her past troubles and how it effected her music, who’s she’s listening to now, and the infamous Burger King commercial, it’s good to see Mary still catering to her fans.

She also premiered the brand new singles “Whole Damn Year” and “Therapy,” which are the first official U.S. releases off The London Sessions, due out December 2.

New Music: Mary J. Blige – Whole Damn Year + Therapy

mjb-whole-damn-year

They say it can take a whole year to fully get over a bad break-up, and Mary J. Blige can relate to the painful struggle on her brand new song “Whole Damn Year.” The Queen of R&B has fans patiently awaiting the release of her anticipated new album The London Sessions, and today we get the second taste of the project with the heartfelt piano ballad.

“I can feel you getting impatient, but I really can’t let you inside / Bad how deep the pain is / Oh you just couldn’t believe / Yea I seem good on the surface, but I’m a mess underneath,” sings Mary on the new single, which was written by Emeli Sande.

Earlier this month she released the progressive song “Right Now,” which is acting as a UK single from the project, which she recorded this past summer in London.

“It’s all about the London Music scene and I’m so excited to have been part of it, to record my album,” said 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.”

Scheduled to hit stores in the UK on November 24 and December 2 in the U.S., the album, which is executive produced by Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, will be released via Capitol Records.

Take a listen to her brand new single below:

UPDATE: Mary had more than one new song up her sleeve to kick off the week. You can also listen to another new single, “Therapy,” below. The doo-wop song was co-written by Sam Smith and inspired by Amy Winehouse.
