Mary J Blige
Hi JEAN PAUL,
I hope you’re well and having a good week.
The reason for my email today is because Interview Hub has just secured an exclusive 1-2-1 transcript with one of the doyennes of the hip hop urban music scene, Mary J Blige.
The 43 year old from The Bronx has enjoyed a career spanning 25 years, with nine Grammy awards on the mantelpiece, and over 50 million album sales to her name.
This autumn sees the release of her thirteenth studio album, The London Sessions.
Blige spent a month in London recording the album with a host of young British acts, including Disclosure, Naughty Boy, Emeli Sandé and Sam Smith; the latter of which co-wrote the first single from the album, Therapy, after they worked together on his huge summer hit, Stay With Me.
In deep discussion with us ahead of the new album’s launch, Blige spoke about her liberating new direction, working with the rising top British music talent, the experience of recording and living in London, how she nearly quit the music scene before recording the new album, how she’s survived this long in the hugely competitive industry, the pros and cons of releasing music for free on platforms like iTunes, why she steers clear of social media, her thoughts on her ‘diva’ label and channelling Amy Winehouse.
Could you make good use of the transcript for a forthcoming issue in the near future? It is now available in full on a first-come, first-served basis, either as a raw transcript, or you can commission us to write a unique piece for you, to any brief you stipulate.
If you were to purchase it you can use and edit the text however you wish for your publication, and a selection of complimentary hi-res images can be provided to go with the text. Also, through our partnership with Press Association, we have additional photo-shoot images available too, for a small fee. A selection of which can be seen here:
