Blige revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that she does have a song with Mr. West, but wouldn’t reveal the title.
Blige said, “I don’t want to give up the name of the song yet, but the album is mostly complete,” she continued, “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.”
The news of the song came about when Blige’s A&R rep, Eddie Fourcell said that it could be a new song with the duo. Mary has not had an album out since her 2014’s London Sessions.
Some of the other artists that will be on the new album are Hit-Boy, DJ Camper, B.A.M. and Jazmine Sullivan.
Mary also talked about the sound of her upcoming song with ‘Ye, saying, “The flavor of the track starts off with piano keys. It’s very dramatic in the beginning and it goes into a loud horn. That is, like an old sample horn,” she said. “And then this gigantic beat kicks in and I sing. He rhymes after my two verses. It’s incredible. He kills it. I wish I could give you the title, you’d flip but I just can’t do it yet.”
Mary and Kanye on a track is insane! Hopefully, we’ll hear it soon.
