    The manor's large courtyard.

Known as the Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul, Mary J. Blige has cemented her musical legacy with a string of chart-topping hits. Now the queen is abdicating one of her thrones -- she's put her $13 million mansion in Saddle River, NJ, on the market, reports the North Jersey Record.

The eight-bedroom mansion (complete with six-car garage) was the perfect royal lodge for the influential vocalist, whose numerous hits -- including "Be Without You" and "No More Drama" -- innovated the stylistic trappings of modern R&B.

After examining her extensive discography, we found three tunes to sum up the story behind the potential sale of this palace.

Sure, you could add more to this luxurious estate, but why would you want to? Already 13,000 square feet in size, this home features a grand foyer with a gleaming floor and an intricate iron-and-wood bannister on the curving staircase. In the spacious sunroom, the lofted ceiling enhances the 180-degree view of the surrounding foliage.

Even if you stayed in and didn't hit the club every night, boredom wouldn't be an issue. The manor's endless amenities include a half-size basketball court, pool, gym, sauna, screening room, and wine cellar with tasting room. The kitchen features two islands, an espresso station, top-of-the-line appliances, and two dining rooms.
