When she was 21 years old, Mary J. Blige was crowned the queen of hip hop R&B soul.

On August 15, 1992, her first single, "You Remind Me," climbed to #1 R&B and #29 pop.

Who says karaoke doesn't pay? Mary J. recorded Anita Baker's "Rapture" as a demo at a suburban New York City shopping mall on a karaoke machine.

Like so many artists, a church choir was her calling while living in Savannah, Georgia.

Between 1992 - 1997, three of Mary's five albums reached #1 R&B ("What's the 411," "My Life," "Share My World").

Her latest release is the well received "The Breakthrough." At peace with herself, there's no more drama for Mary J. Blige.
