Mary J. Blige reached new heights on Apple Music in 2022, with the release of her fifteenth studio album, 'Good Morning Gorgeous', and her performance in the Super Bowl LVI halftime show. The week following the halftime performance was her biggest week in Apple Music history, with 325% more streams than she saw the same week in 2021. Blige's saw songs new and old have reached the Daily Top 100 in countries worldwide.

"Family Affair" hit the Daily Top 100 in a number of countries, including the U.S., Canada, Norway, and Denmark. All told, Mary J. Blige has hit the Daily Top 100 in 38 countries, and her music has been featured across many major editorial playlists on Apple Music, including R&B Now, '90s Hits Essentials, Brown Sugar, and more. Blige is also a frequent guest on the Zane Lowe Show and Ebro show on Apple Music 1 where she regularly shares new music and connects with her fans around the world.

Launched this spring, Apple Music Live has previously featured exclusive live streamed performances from global chart-toppers Harry Styles and Lil Durk , available to watch on-demand on Apple Music.

Mary J. Blige is a figure of inspiration, transformation and empowerment making her one of the defining voices of the contemporary music era. With a track record of eight multi-platinum albums, nine Grammy Awards (plus a staggering 32 nominations), two Academy Award nominations, two Golden Globe nominations, and a SAG nomination, among many other accolades, Blige has cemented herself as a global superstar. And in the ensuing years, the singer/songwriter has attracted an intensely loyal fan base-responsible for propelling worldwide sales of more than 50 million albums.

Blige brought her own gritty, urban-rooted style-fusing hip-hop, soul and honest, frank lyrics-to the forefront on her 1992 debut album What's the 411? The multi-platinum set, executive produced by Sean "Diddy" Combs, quickly spun off several hits, including two No. R&B No. 1s: "You Remind Me" and "Real Love".

Blige helped redefine R&B and began forging a unique niche for herself on the more personal second album, 1994's My Life. She is loved for her passionate, chart-topping hits like "Be Without You", "No More Drama" and "Family Affair" all of which have made her a force in music.

Each subsequent album reads like a chapter from an autobiography: Share My World (1997), Mary (1999), No More Drama (2001), Love & Life (2003), the multiple Grammy-winning and hit-spewing The Breakthrough (2005), Growing Pains (2007), Stronger with Each Tear (2009), My Life II... The Journey Continues (2011), A Mary Christmas (2013), The London Sessions (2014), Strength of a Woman (2017) and Good Morning Gorgeous (2022).

Along the way, she's lined up a string of hit singles, including Not Gon' Cry, Love Is All We Need, Seven Days, All That I Can Say, Family Affair, Just Fine and U + Me (Love Lesson). In late 2021, Blige released the first two singles off her 15th studio album, "Amazing (feat. DJ Khaled)" and "Good Morning Gorgeous," followed by "Rent Money (feat. Dave East)" in January of 2022. This all led up to the release of her latest studio album "Good Morning Gorgeous," which dropped on February 11th.
