Mary J. Blige
Year Eligible: 2017
Debut Record: What's the 411? (1992)
Why She Should Be Inducted: If the infectious, enduring 1992 single "Real Love" doesn't warrant her inclusion alone, maybe her four other Number One R&B singles — produced by the likes of Babyface and Dr. Dre, among others — will make her case. Blige has also won nine Grammys, four American Music Awards and four BET Awards. Convinced yet?
Possible Drama: "No More Drama"
