Mary J. Blige Discusses First Collaboration With Kanye West

(AllHipHop News) The Queen of Hip Hop Soul has yet to release a song with Yeezus. That is about to change.

Mary J. Blige is working on her next studio album, and the LP will include a collaboration with Kanye West.

“I don’t want to give up the name of the song yet, but the album is mostly complete,” Blige told THR. “But I absolutely got a chance to work with the great Kanye West. And the song is crazy — I can’t wait for people to hear it.”

Blige describes the track as starting off with piano keys and leading into a horn sample. Kanye later joins the song with his own verse.

“It’s incredible. He kills it,” said the Yonkers, New York born singer.

The so-far unnamed MJB project will also feature work by Hit-Boy, DJ Camper, B.A.M., and Jazmine Sullivan. Blige’s last album was 2014’s The London Sessions which included an appearance by Disclosure.
