It was confirmed in June of 2013 that Blige had been working on a Christmas album, in an interview with Charleston Scene. In that interview, Blige revealed featured artists to be on the record would be Jessie J, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony and Barbra Streisand, with whom she duets a “jazzy version” of “When You Wish Upon a Star.”
This album is the first collaboration between legendary producer and hit-maker David Foster and Blige. The album will also be released on The Verve Music Group, in which Foster is the chairman of. Foster is also the producer of multi-platinum Christmas albums by Michael Bublé, Rod Stewart, Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban and Celine Dion. Chris Walden wrote two arrangements for the album.
It might still be five months away, but it’s beginning to look at lot like Christmas in Mary J. Blige‘s world. The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul announced that she’s releasing her first-ever Christmas album, cleverly titled A Mary Christmas.
Blige paired up with acclaimed producer David Foster for the first time to create A Mary Christmas. Foster’s work on previous holiday albums from adult contemporary acts like Michael Bublé, Josh Groban, and Celine Dion suggests that Blige’s album will be more traditional, with a touch of the singer’s soulful flare. The album will also feature duets with a handful of big-time singers from Jennifer Lopez to Marc Anthony to the rather unexpected Barbra Streisand.
The album will hit stores in October, a solid season for Christmas albums, in order to capitalize on all the glee and festivities of the approaching holiday season. Blige has made appearances on holidays albums in the past from the likes of Andrea Bocelli and Rod Stewart.
