iTunes Review

Leave it to Mary J. Blige, the queen of emotive, edgy soul, to turn her first holiday album into a dramatic and often poignant affair. A Mary Christmas does have its share of cheer: backed by a live orchestra, as are many of the tracks, “This Christmas” is a bright rendition of the Donny Hathaway classic. Still, Blige’s take on “My Favorite Things” is hushed and delicate, and on her version of “Petit Papa Noël,” she sings in French over melancholy guitar.

Customer Reviews

Legendary J. Blige

Very solid, if not classic album. Mary's voice is unfiltered. She sings in both French & Spanish. The duet with Barbara Streisand is gold.These are songs God in merciful Heaven approves of.

MJB - Took it to another Level

I don't normally write reviews but MJB is showing off her skills with this CD. Her voice is so mature. MJB is in a class by herself. Great project.


I was expecting this cd to be another holiday album of Christms classics re-worked into a R&B synthesizer contemporary affair and that's it. I love Mary and while there's nothing wrong at all with her hip-hop style R&B the human fault is to pigeonhole which is what I've done and I'm so glad I'm wrong. This Christmas album will measure up to all the other holiday classics. Well well done ma'am, well done

Blige's Yonkers, New York childhood. Called alternately the new Chaka Khan or new Aretha Franklin, Blige had little in common stylistically with either of those artists, but like them, she helped adorn soul music with new textures and flavors that inspired a whole generation of musicians....
