The Queen of Hip Hop Soul, Mary J. Blige, turned up the heat for her 50th birthday in a breathtaking gold bikini that left her fans awe-struck at her age-defying figure.
Singer and actress Mary J. Blige celebrated a huge milestone on January 11 as she marked her 50th birthday with some show-stopping photos that left fans begging for more.
The "No More Drama" singer showed up and showed out in the stunning beach snaps that she shared on her Instagram page.

In the first photo taken by a celebrity photographer, Robert Ector, Blige flaunted her mesmerizing curves and radiant brown skin, which looked stunning against the turquoise ocean and blue skies.
The "Be Without You" singer was clad in a sexy gold snakeskin halter-bikini that was tied around her slim waistline, exposing the cross tattoo on her shoulder and butterfly tattoos across her waist and hip.
To complete her beach vacation glam, Blige accessorized her outfit with gold bangles and matching unique hoop earrings, complete with a pair of chic gold-rimmed aviator sunglasses.
The actress' blonde hair, which she previously styled in fierce bangs, was braided and swept to one side, giving her an effortlessly goddess-like aura.
Blige posted a second photo of herself as she posed facing the camera, with her feet sunk in the sandy waters and showing off her single rose tattoo on her thigh. She captioned:
"Tough love is the therapy!"
Fans and celebrity friends took to the comments section to compliment the singer and wish her a happy birthday. One person said the actress was aging backward while another called her the queen of bodies.
The ocean blue and gold theme was carried through in a third post, an ad for Sun Goddess Wines, Blige's wine collection in partnership with Fantinel Winery.
"The Umbrella Academy" actress has been enjoying major success in her business and professional career. Her acting career took off with her critically acclaimed performance in "Mudbound."
Blige has been focusing on her career and living her best life as a single woman in Hollywood. The "Power Book II: Ghost" actress split with her husband of 13 years, Kendu Isaacs, in 2016.
The divorce turned ugly as Isaacs attempted to gain financial support from the nine-time Grammy Award-winner. While the experience was emotionally taxing on the singer, she is still open to finding love in the future.
