Mary J. Blige Debuts At The Tribeca Film Festival With A Peek Into ‘The London Sessions’


Queen Mary J. Blige knows how to ensure her reign will last. After wowing us last year with the release of her 13th studio album, The London Sessions, she continued to impress us well into 2015 with videos, televised performances and a guest spot on FOX’s Empire. Although Mary has always been raw and emotionally transparent in her music, her continued growth as an artist never ceases to amaze us.
