Monica (Singer) Career
In 1991, at the age of eleven, She was discovered by music producer Dallas Austin at the Center Stage auditorium in Atlanta performing Whitney Houston 1986’s “Greatest Love of All”. Amazed by her voice, Dallas offered her a record deal with his Arista Records-distributed label Rowdy Records and consulted rapper Queen Latifah to work as Monica’s first manager.
After a label change to Clive Davis’s Arista Records, Monica’s mainstream success was boosted, when Diane Warren-written “For You I Will”, from the Space Jam soundtrack (1996), became her next top ten pop hit.
In 2000, Monica made her film debut in the third drama from MTV Films, Love Song, as Camille Livingston, a young woman torn between the life her parents have planned for her and the world she experiences after meeting a musician from the wrong side of the tracks.
The film debut the song “What My Heart Says” with the promotion of her third album All Eyez on Me (2002). The film was released on April 30, 2002, and in Felicity (2001) and American Dreams (2003) playing Mary Wells, singing “My Guy”.
After the Japan-wide release of All Eyez on Me, She was asked to substantially reconstruct the record with a host of new producers, and as a result, she re-entered recording studios to start work with songwriters Kanye West, Jazze Pha, Andre “mrDEYO” Deyo, Bam & Ryan and Dupri – replacing executive producer Missy Elliott.
Finally released in June 2003, After the Storm debuted at number one on Billboard`s Top R&B/Hip-Hop albums chart, and on top of the official Billboard 200, with sales of 186,000 copies emerging as Monica’s first and only number-one album to date. It eventually received a gold certification and has sold over one million copies domestically.
Towards the end of 2006, Monica released her next studio album The Makings of Me. Titled after Curtis Mayfield’s recording “The Makings of You”, it saw her particularly reuniting with producers Elliott, Dupri, and Bryan Michael Cox, all of whom had previously contributed to After the Storm.
In 2011, Monica joined the debut season of NBC’s reality talent shows The Voice as an adviser to musician coach Cee Lo Green. In April 2012, her seventh studio album, New Life, was released.
