Mary J. Blige to Collaborate with Sam Smith, Disclosure & Emeli Sande on New Album ‘London Sessions’
Mary J. Blige’s previously announced album, The London Sessions, just got a little more British.
The British DJ, who currently has a hit with the Sam Smith-assisted track, ‘La La La,’ achieved his dreams thanks in part to the game show Deal or No Deal.
The first time Emeli Sandé heard herself on the radio she was in a taxi on her way back from a London studio. It was 4 o’clock in the morning and the city appeared to be asleep. Sandé, on the other hand, was wide-awake.

“It was nerve-wracking but I was so excited to be there and to be able to play such an incredible song in front of the person who created it,” she said.
Emeli Sandé is undoubtedly the reigning queen of new British soul.
