Mary J. Blige is a seasoned R&B/hip-hop/soul songstress, with nine Grammy’s, four American Music Awards and eight multi-platinum albums sitting comfortably under her belt. Her rise to greatness started in 1992 with What’s the 411?, pumping out hits like “You Remind Me” and “Real Love.” From then on, she opened up to the world, letting us get to know the raw, emotion-filled Mary. Her third album, Share My World, became her first album to open up at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Over the course of her career, she has received accolades from some of the biggest names in music such as Rolling Stone, VH1, Time, Billboard, and VIBE of course. Like most musicians, she’s dabbled in other industries. She was in Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All By Myself and released her fragrance “My Life” in collaboration with Home Shopping Network and Carol’s Daughter. Although people can’t seem to erase the infamous ode to Burger King commercial from their minds, look out for Blige on Nas’ forthcoming album Life is Good and in theatres in the film Rock of Ages.
