American recording artist Mary J. Blige began her career as a backing vocalist for Father MC in the early 1990s. Her discography as a solo artist began in 1992 and consists of eleven studio albums, two live albums, two remix albums and over eighty singles—including more than 20 as a featured artist. Blige has sold over 50 million albums and 15 million singles worldwide.[1] In 2009, Billboard magazine ranked Blige as the most successful female R&B artist of the past 25 years,[2] while listing her 2006 song "Be Without You" as the top R&B song of the 2000s, as it spent an unparalleled 15 weeks atop the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.[3] In 2011, VH1 ranked Blige as the 80th greatest artist of all time.[4] Moreover, she was ranked 100th on the list of "100 Greatest Singers of All Time" by Rolling Stone magazine.[5] In 2012, VH1 ranked Blige ninth among "The 100 Greatest Woman in Music" listing.[6]

Blige started her own musical career in 1992, releasing her multi-platinum-selling debut album, What's the 411? on MCA and Uptown Records. The album gave Blige her first Billboard 200 top ten album, and all of her subsequent studio albums have charted in the top ten on this chart, up to and including her most recent album, My Life II... The Journey Continues (Act 1) (2011). Among Blige's most popular songs to date are "Family Affair", "Real Love", "Not Gon' Cry" and "Be Without You". Blige has had four Billboard Hot 100 top-ten singles as a lead artist in the United States, and has had a total of sixteen total top-forty charting singles in the United States. She has had thirty-three singles charting inside the top one hundred on the Billboard Hot 100, making Blige one of the best-performing R&B artists to date on the chart.
