With over 40 million albums sold worldwide, nine Grammys and just as many albums not to mention the unequivocal title «Queen of Hip Hop Soul»: Mary J. Blige is a true diva in the best sense of the word. Her music is a big as her personality and like any true diva this native New Yorker is also a style icon. Justin Nozuka is an exceptional talent. On his debut album «Holly», he was compared with greats such as Marvin Gaye, Jeff Buckley and Ben Harper – even though Nozuka was only 19 years old at the time. His following album «You I Wind Land And Sea» was released in spring 2010 and it shows: Justin has got even better.
