Mary J. Blige is one of the most productive celebrities when it comes to business. Aside from upcoming sunglasses and past fashion deals with other brands, the R&B diva is currently partnering up with the Home Shopping Network in selling her fragrance, “My Life”. And who knew that the pairing would beat P.Diddy on his collaboration with the network?
The launch of “My Life” on HSN was aired Saturday, July 31, and during her live premiere, Oprah called in to congratulate Ms. Blige. And to add more good news, “My Life” gave a whopping 50,000 bottles sale worth $2.7 million, instantly becoming the fastest-selling and most popular fragrance in network history.
That is not all, Mary J. is always about doing good, so for every bottle sold, $1 will go to her organization, FFAWN, to help support women’s development, empowerment and education by giving scholarships.
Ms. Blige was also excited about the success of her fragrance, created by beauty line Carol’s Daughter, and she tweeted:
You saved so many lives and dreams tonight with your purchase!!! So many women will be getting the second chance they deserve!!! FFAWN
