At the tender age of 14, Monica raised the bar for female singers when she became the youngest female artist in history to have two consecutive #1 hits on the Billboard R&B chart with her debut single "Don’t Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)," followed by "Before You Walk Out of My Life" from her debut album Miss Thang. Monica’s 1999 sophomore release, The Boy Is Mine, scored double-platinum status on the strength of three #1 R&B and pop hit singles spanning a year on the charts: "Angel of Mine," "The First Night" and the Grammy-winning "The Boy is Mine," her double-platinum duet with Brandy. After a brief hiatus, Monica returned in 2003 with her third platinum driven release, After The Storm, which spawned the #1 R&B/Dance/Pop crossover "So Gone" and its follow-ups, "Knock Knock" and "U Should’ve Known Better." The recipient of top honors throughout her career, including American Music Awards, Billboard and Soul Train, Monica continues to remain relevant in a forever changing musical climate.
