The legendary singer announced that she will collaborate with some of the biggest talent out of the UK.
She’ll team up with her Capitol Records label mates, Sam Smith and Emeli Sandé, and with the DJ duo Disclosure. Blige has collaborated previously with Smith on his track “Stay With Me” and made a guest appearance on Disclosure’s “F For You” remix and video.
As reported before, Blige will work with producer Naughty Boy, with songwriters Sam Romans (Naughty Boy’s “Home”), Jimmy Napes (Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me”) and Eg White (Adele, Florence & the Machine) joining in the fun.
“It’s all about the London music scene and I’m so excited to have been part of it, to record my album,” says Blige in a press release. “The songs are fun, therapeutic and soulful. This is a beautiful change for me and I’m proud of what we have done here.”
