Billboard Music Awards 2022: Mary J. Blige receives Icon Award
What’s up? The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul is going to be honoured. Mary J. Blige will receive the Icon Award at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 15.
Her 11th Billboard Music Award includes album of the year, nine R&B/hip-hop artist of the year and nine Hot 100 artist of the year.
Pink, Garth Brooks, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, and Cher have all won the Billboard Icon Award.
The singer-songwriter has been busy this year releasing her 14th album, “Good Morning Gorgeous,” and preparing for her 2022 Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and Kendrick Lamar.
Blige has branched out into acting, producing, and entrepreneurship, but she always returns to her roots – music.
“My career has taken many unexpected twists, including acting, producing, founding companies, and now even my own music festival,” Blige said in a statement.
“Throughout it all, I kept returning to my first passion, music. Receiving the Icon Award at the Billboard Music Awards is a tremendous honour and I am genuinely humbled.”
As she gets her historic honour, Blige is expected to wow the crowd. Fan-favorite two-step stomp and classic tunes are expected.
It will all be OK.
