If you saw last night’s Grammys, you probably noticed that Mary J Blige gave a very long acceptance speech the first time she took the stage to receive a trophy. Apparently, MJB didn’t expect to win again that night, hence the endless list of shout-outs. Well, it turns out Blige would dominate the R&B categories. She won for “Best R&B Album” and “Best R&B Song.”
