R&B diva Mary J. Blige will be heating up the holidays with a Christmas album titled, “A Mary Christmas,” and she has released the first song from the album, “This Christmas.”
As reported by idolator.com:
“‘This Christmas,’ an earthy cover of the Donny Hathaway classic, could have been recorded in the ’70s. It has a raw, live feel that will resonate deeply with fans of old school soul. This project raised a lot of eyebrows, but if the rest of the David Foster-produced set is this good, Mary could prove us all wrong. ”
Although most people aren’t ready for Christmas, but Mary fans can’t never get enough her even if she’s preempting the season.
” A Mary Christmas” is scheduled to be released on Oct. 15 and features big name collaborators such as Jessie J, Marc Anthony and Barbra Streisand.
