You've Got The Gift, Now Here's Your Rapper

With over 2 decades in the music industry it is somewhat surprising that it has taken until 2013 for R&B star Mary J. Blige to record a Christmas album. By the sounds of the personnel who are working with Blige ‘A Mary Christmas’ will have been worth the wait. Confirmed collaborators include Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony as well as Barbara Streisand who has recorded a duet with Mary for ‘When You Wish Upon A Star’. ‘A Mary Christmas’ will be released just before the holidays in tandem with her Christmas movie ‘Black Nativity’. Christmas 2013 is shaping up to be a very Mary one.

Although ‘A Mary Christmas’ will be Mary J. Blige’s first Christmas album she has recorded several festive singles over her distinguished career. The first appeared in 1997 when she duetted with Angie Martinez on ‘Christmas In The City’ for the charity compilation ‘A Very Special Christmas 3’. Blige co-wrote the urban/rap ‘Christmas In The City’ which on the face of it wasn’t particularly Christmassy sounding but told a December tale all the same. 2 years Mary J. Blige really did get into the spirit with her splendid cover of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Someday At Christmas’, which again appeared on a compilation – this time called ‘My Christmas Album’. ‘Someday At Christmas’ was slick, wholesome and contained some of Blige’s signature R&B sounds.

It would be full decade later, in 2009, before Mary J. Blige donned the red garments again and this time she joined up with tenor Andrea Bocelli on his album ‘My Christmas’. The pair collaborated on the popular 19th English Christmas carol ‘What Child Is This?’ which they would go on to perform live on the Christmas edition of the Oprah Winfrey show that year. It’s easy to see the appeal as the 2 contemporary greats creatde festive magic with a classic standard. Joining Rod Stewart on ‘We Three Kings’ for his 2012 album ‘Merry Christmas, Baby’ would prove to be another winning performance from Blige. At that point she had probably made up her mind that is was high time that she was next up for having her name in Christmas lights. Let's hope 'A Mary Christmas' lives up to its billing.
