Mary J. Blige is kicking off 2018 on one of the highest notes of her career. The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul is set to receive one of the industry’s most prestigious honors— her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Mudbound star will be honored on January 11 in Hollywood and her longtime friend Sean “Diddy” Combs —who will join Hollywood Chamber president and CEO Leron Gubler to unveil her star— will usher the festivities in.
Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies had this to say about this iconic moment, “Mary J. Blige is one of the most popular singers of our generation. Fans will be thrilled to see her star on the Boulevard as her career milestones are celebrated on this very famous sidewalk.”
The ceremony will follow this Sunday’s Golden Globes, where we’ll be rooting for MJB, who is up for Best Supporting Actress, for her role in Mudbound, and where her song “Mighty River,” which she wrote for the movie, is also up for nomination.
