“Working with Mary J. Blige is one of the biggest highlights of my career so far. I remember holding her album in my hands in the car when I was a young boy,” the 22-year-old English singer shared in a statement. “To meet your idols is a magical thing, but to work with them is truly a dream come true.”
Mary added, “I’m so honored to have had the chance to work with Sam Smith. Sam’s true soulful voice… is the first of this kind I have heard since Luther Vandross, Freddie Jackson and all the great soulful male voices from the ‘80s. I’m completely blown away by his talent, soul and the sincerity.”
Mark your calendars, In the Lonely Hour drops on June 17. We can’t wait!
