Mary J. Blige Honored With Icon Award at 2022 BBMAs’
May 16, 2022

Mary J. Blige, an indispensable voice in the history of R&B and hip-hop and a 10-time Billboard Music Award winner, was presented with the Icon Award at the 2022 BBMAs on Sunday night (May 15). Bestowed with the honor by former Icon Award recipient Janet Jackson, Blige brought the house down at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, earning ovations before, during and after an acceptance speech that touched upon her prolonged rise and emotional honesty.

“Mary J. Blige represents truth,” Jackson told the arena while describing Blige as an indisputable icon. “Her work has always given us comfort because she sings me, she sings you.” Artists such as Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott and H.E.R. also congratulated Blige in a taped montage before the Icon took the stage.

Before thanking a laundry list of friends, family members and supporters including BBMAs host Diddy, whom Blige described as her “big brother,” and Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine for asking her to perform at the most recent Super Bowl halftime show the superstar dropped the line of the night, which re-contextualized one of her biggest hits. “The message of my music has always been we are not alone in our struggles,” Blige said. “I finally found my real love, and that real love is me.”
