Mary J. Blige accepts the Icon Award onstage at Billboard Women In Music 2017 at The Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center on Nov. 30, 2017 in Hollywood, Calif.

Mary J. Blige will soon have yet another honor to check off her list. The hip-hop crooner will receive her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The ceremony will take place on January 11, with Diddy taking part in the unveiling, according to Variety. The Bronx native’s star will be in the recording category, despite her dabbling in the film and television sphere.

“Mary J. Blige is one of the most popular singers of our generation. Fans will be thrilled to see her star on the Boulevard as her career milestones are celebrated on this very famous sidewalk,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies.

The week will surely be busy for Blige, who will be attending the Golden Globes just days before on January 7. She’s up for best performance by an actress in a supporting role in any motion picture for her role in Mudbound.
