Well, wonder no more. The Queen of Hip Hop Soul sat down with Mutha Knows of Philly’s Power 99 and spilled the tea on the project.
“You know I did the remix of “F For You” with Disclosure and they released it over there (the UK) and it blew up really big … we started getting a really good response so, the whole idea was to go to London and do an EP with them,” Mary J. said inthe interview.” And during that time I was getting out of my contract with Interscope, I was speaking with Steve Barnett, the head of Capitol records where I’m signed now . I was speaking to him about the whole Disclosure EP idea. He said, ‘Mary that’s a great idea, but let’s scrap that whole Disclosure idea because you’re bigger than that kind of music. Let’s put you in London with writers like Emily Dande, Sam Smith … producers like Naughty Boy, Jimmy Napes and call the album “The London Sessions.'”
