Earlier this month, Mary J. Blige’s A&R Eddie Fourcell let slip that during a podcast interview that the world could soon expect a collaboration between her and Kanye West.
Now, we have even more detail coming from Blige herself who describes the upcoming song’s beat and breakdown.
The singer told The Hollywood Reporter, “I don’t want to give up the name of the song yet, but the album is mostly complete. But I absolutely got a chance to work with the great Kanye West. And the song is crazy—I can’t wait for people to hear it. The flavor of the track starts off with piano keys. It’s very dramatic in the beginning and it goes into a loud horn. That is, like an old sample horn. And then this gigantic beat kicks in and I sing. He rhymes after my two verses. It’s incredible. He kills it. I wish I could give you the title, you’d flip but I just can’t do it yet.”
Though a release date for her anticipated album has yet to be revealed, Blige said the LP, which features production from Hit-Boy, is “mostly complete.”
