R&B singer Mary J. Blige is up for eight Grammy awards this year — more than any other artist. Her single from the album Breakthrough, "Be Without You," is nominated for record of the year.

We take a closer look at the career of a woman many consider to be the "queen of hip-hop soul." The Grammy ceremony will air Feb. 11 on CBS.
