Blige's second album, "My Life", released in 1994, featured the hits "I'm Going Down", "Mary Jane", "I Love You", and the title track, which became a signature song for her.
Blige began her acting career in 1998 with an appearance on The WB comedy, "The Jamie Foxx Show". Also, Andre said that since Mary was introduced as the queen of hip-hop and soul music on Soul Train, she has held that title.
