After contributing to the Think Like a Man Too soundtrack, Mary J. Blige is heading overseas to record her next album.
According to Hits Daily Double, the singer’s disc, tentatively titled The London Sessions, will be recorded in the U.K. with Naughty Boy, who will oversee the project. The producer is responsible for crafting hits from Emeli Sande‘s Our Version Of Events as well as Fantasia‘s “Side Effects of You” and Rihanna “Half of Me.”
Mary, who recently remixed Sam Smith‘s “Stay with Me,” is also expected to work with the top writers, producers and neo-soul singers in the U.K.
The upcoming effort will follow her David Foster-produced holiday album, A Mary Christmas, which sold around 500,000 copies, and her last proper album, 2011’s My Life II… The Journey Continues (Act 1).
