Mary J. Blige’s Seoul-ful Performance

Just days after celebrating her 40th birthday with friends and family in New York City, singer Mary J. Blige was back on a plane and continuing on with her “Music Saved My Life Tour.” Landing in Seoul, South Korea, Mary played to a packed house of 22,000 fans at the Kyunghee University Peace Hall. Decked out in a black sequin outfit and thigh high leather boots, Mary thanked her fans for coming out in force to support her first show in the country. The singer also announced that she hoped to be back soon in support of her new album, which she said was almost done. The singer’s last album, “Stronger With Each Tour,” was released in 2009 and to date has sold just over 2 million copies in the United States.


  1. Her album has only sold 900,000 copies in the US.

  2. Mary has come a long way. I admit I never thought she would last this long. She is a true soul legend.

  3. Her album has only sold 900,000 copies in the US.

    Nielsen Soundcsan has the album certified double platinum.

  4. Mary has become a good singer, but let’s be careful when we say legend. You have to be on a certain stratesphere to be called legend. A legend: Diana Ross, Whitney Hlouston, Janet Jackson. They have sold more than 150 million records and counting. Because if Mary and others in the industry can be given that title, surely Sade who has sold over 50 million copies is a legend.
