Mary J. Blige - "When You're Gone"
Mary J. Blige delivers another acoustic-driven ballad with her latest single "When You're Gone" off the forthcoming The London Sessions LP. It isn't exactly the powerhouse treatment I'm sure most of you were holding on to the edge of your seat for, but it does strut the effortlessly soulful nature of MJB's velvety croon, injecting the minimal construction with squalls and runs reminiscent of the "Real Love" years. The track serves as our latest taste of her forthcoming LP, following the studio-clad clip for "Right Now" with this cooled-out balladry. The London Sessions is slated to arrive on December 2nd with a star-studded roster of the UK's finest, including Sam Smith, Disclosure, Emile Sande, Jimmy Napes and more, following collaborations with each of them on their own respective projects. How could we forget her harrowing duet with Sam Smith or the genre and generation defying team-up with the wonder-twins AKA Disclosure? Its been a long time coming, but you can prep yourself for Mary J. Blige's latest album with some easy listening from the r&b royalty and put your ears to "When You're Gone" down below.
