Monica visits BMA

We had the pleasure of having R&B singer Monica on Better Mornings Atlanta recently…
She took a break from the studio as she was putting the finishing touches on her seventh album, New Life, set for release on February 21th.
Monica has joined forces with Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger relief charity, to raise awareness about child hunger in the U.S.

Monica entered the music scene at the tender age of 14 and quickly established a track record of history making accomplishments. Monica became the youngest female ever to have two #1 back-to-back hits with “Don’t Take it Personal (Just One of Dem Days)” and “Before You Walk Out of My Life” on Billboard’s R&B chart her from 1995 debut album Miss Thang. Her 1998 album, The Boy is Mine garnered pop success when paired with Brandy on the album’s title track that spent a record breaking 13 weeks at #1 on the charts and earned the duo a Grammy Award. That album also boasted two more #1 hits, “The First Night” and “Angel of Mine.” In 2003 Monica’s chart-topping success continued when her third album, After The Storm, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album chart and spawned her sixth #1 single “So Gone.” Monica’s follow-up album, 2006’s The Makings of Me, entered at #1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Album chart and added yet another achievement to the songstress’ extraordinary career. Monica’s fifth studio album Still Standing debuted at #1 on the R&B Album chart, #2 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 and was certified Gold in just three weeks! The album’s first single, “Everything To Me,” reached the #1 spot on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and became Monica’s seventh #1. The success of “Everything To Me” also placed Monica within an elite group of history making superstars that have garnered #1 R&B singles in three decades – Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, James Brown and Marvin Gaye.
