Remember I told you how miss Mary J. Blige was planning to release her very first Christmas album? Well we have the first offering from the album which is titled "A Mary Christmas". The album will drop next month and you can pre-order it from iTunes now and obtain the song.
But until then, you can enjoy her voice while she covers the classic Donny Hathaway's song "This Christmas". The entire project was produced by mister David Foster and will features other artists like Jessie J, The Clark Sisters and more. Listen to the song below.
I can't really put my finger on what was missing from this song. It felt as she was holding back. Like she was either uncomfortable singing this song, or really didn't know how to sing it and make it her own. It was very mediocre, karaoke-like if you will. I'm curious to hear some other tracks from it. What do you think?
