Hands down Mary J Blige has proved she can handle being the Queen of Hip- Hop Soul. It’s been anything but easy holding on to her crown. The transition from the PJ’s in Yonkers, New York to the music studio was not the life of a princess. She had bouts of depression while dealing with the guilt of being molested at the age of 5 and was suffering from low self esteem. Nothing could suppress her powerhouse, soulful voice that landed her a record deal at Uptown Records at the age of 17. Her reign had seen its ups and downs. Think back to 1994, the My Life album. MJB’s lyrics grew to be more raw than ever before. Soon our heroine began battling with drugs and alcohol.

That journey is over. Currently she’s nearing 8yrs of sobriety. When it comes to willpower we know Mary’s got it.  Within the sneak peek of tonight’s episode of Behind the Music you’ll see how the Queen grabbed on for dear life, and with the help of her husband and faith she never let go.  

See the full episode of VH1’s Behind the Music featuring Mary J Blige tonight at 10pm ET/PT.
