(New York, NY; May 16, 2012) - Multi Grammy award winning My Block/Columbia Records duo Mary Mary makes a splash on top Billboard charts. For the fourth time in their career, the duo's new release Go Get It debuts at #1 on the Billboard Gospel Chart. Go Get It hit # 3 on the Billboard R&B Chart, and makes the top 20 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums charting at #16. The album, composed of two brand new songs and classic remixed and remastered versions of some of the duo's greatest hits, has taken off as a fan favorite with the infectious lead single and title track, 'Go Get It' debuting on the top 10 Gospel singles chart since it's April release, where it still remains, currently at #7. The album, heralded as a soundtrack to their current self-titled WE tv reality series, has been widely received by fans and critics alike.

Mary Mary kicked off their album promo week with an interview on ABC's Good Morning America with host Robin Roberts and an exhilarating in-studio performance, backed by their live band of 'Go Get It.' The ladies rounded out their promo week with appearances on nationally syndicated morning show, The Better Show, Trinity Broadcasting Network's Praise the Lord, and NYC's PIX 11 Morning News.

Pundits agree; Go Get It proves that Mary Mary is here to stay. USA Today states "Sisters Erica and Tina have been delivering faith-inspired positive messages for more than a dozen years…Go Get It is a stirring call to improve your life…Can't Give Up Now and Shackles are reminders of their broad appeal." Billboard Magazine notes Go Get It as "an insinuating groove and a gloriously uplifting lyric that urges the listener to "Go Get It…" Billboard goes on to say that "sisters Erica & Tina have managed to enjoy a devoted following in the gospel market while expanding its fan base in the mainstream thanks to the duo's funky energetic style and signature soaring vocals."

The duo, sisters Erica and Tina Campbell have been keeping up a tremendous pace. In the past year the ladies have been nominated for every major award and have taken home many - receiving the prestigious ASCAP Golden Note Award, a BET Award, Soul Train Award, two Stellar Awards and double Grammy nominations. In addition to filming the first season of their reality series which takes a personal look at their lives as singers, mothers, wives, and siblings - trying to balance it all; both sisters experienced pregnancy within the past year. Erica and husband/producer Warryn Campbell welcomed their third child in February 2012 and Tina and husband/Tonight Show Band drummer Teddy Campbell, are currently expecting their 5th child due August 2012.

Having just announced Season 2 of their WE tv series the ladies are showing no signs of slowing down. The duo will be honored at this year's 2012 Essence Music Festival and will be touring in the coming months. The album Go Get It was released, May 8th 2012 and is available now in stores and online.
