Mary J Blige "Breaks Through" SoundScan

Mary J Blige's aptly titled, "Breakthrough" became the highest selling first-week release for a solo, R&B female artist according to SoundScan. If anyone doubted that Queen Mary reigns supreme, the figures speak for themselves: With 727,000 units sold, "Breakthrough" becomes the 5th best selling release for a woman--of any genre.

Mary J. Blige joins Britney Spears, Norah Jones, Shania Twain and Mariah Carey as one of the few female artists to enjoy such phenomenal success.

Long live The Queen!
