For The Love Of Mary J. Blige
We are celebrating none other than the one and only “Queen Of Hiphop Soul” - Mary J. Blige this time around! There’s no artist in the hiphop soul genre whose music has rung true with such a tenacious and resilient spirit over the years. She’s worn her heart on her sleeve and hasn’t hidden the fact that her tumultuous past and struggles have contributed to the woman she is today. Over time, Mary J. Blige has used her music to share about overcoming her ups and downs and spanned glorious tracks full of freedom, redemption, triumph and inspiration for generations of women. Her songs have not only resonated with people from different backgrounds but have become anthems of hope, full of conviction that better days are yet to come.
From the 30 Grammy nominations she has garnered so far, Blige has won 9 and sold over 50 millions albums from the 11 studio albums she has recorded to date.
She’s has also received numerous awards and achievements in her time including being named one of TIME magazines’ “100 most influential people” in 2007. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked Mary J. Blige’s prolific “My Life” album as one of the “100 Greatest Albums of All Times” in early 2000. The list of accolades go on and on for the indisputable “Queen Of RnB”.
