Mary J Blige To Receive The Billboard Icon Award

Written by on April 14, 2022

Here’s some great news to kick off your Thursday! Music legend Mary J. Blige will be honored with the Icon Award at this year’s Billboard Music Awards!

That’s right. It was announced this morning. The ICON Award recognizes entertainers who have achieved excellence on the Billboard Charts and have made a lasting mark on the music industry. Blige who has 10 BBMA wins in total, will join the elite class of honorees including Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Pink, Jennifer Lopez, Garth Brooks, Cher, Neil Diamond, Celine Dion, Prince, and Stevie Wonder.

Now, although this will be her first honorary award with Billboard, she has received many honors in the past. Back in 2019, Miss Blige took home the lifetime achievement award at the BET Awards. In 2021, the Bronx native and nine-time Grammy award-winning artist were honored at the Apollo Theater Walk of Fame.
