Diddy and Blige obviously have tons of history together, in face he even produced her debut album.

"I am feeling like a proud musical father", said Harrell, who founded Uptown Records, the label that signed Blige in 1989 when she was 18 years old.

Blige's other hit singles include "Not Gon' Cry", "Love Is All We Need", "Seven Days", "All That I Can Say", "Family Affair" and "Just Fine".

Blige won her first Grammy in 1996 for best rap performance by a duo or group for "I'll Be There For You/You're All I Need To Get By", a collaboration with Method Man. "Whatever she is going through, she knows she has a responsibility for those going through the same thing". On Sunday (Jan. 7), she attended the Golden Globes Awards where she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her work in Mudbound and Best Original Song for "Mighty River". And we learned how to survive. 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. But I thank God for this moment.

"There were times when I didn't want to step outside my house because I had been hurt so bad", she told the crowd during her acceptance speech. Everything happens for a reason.
