Monica rose to prominence after she signed with Rowdy Records in 1993 and released her debut album ‘Miss Thang’ two years later. She followed it with a series of successful albums, including the global bestseller ‘The Boy Is Mine’ (1998) as well as the number-one albums ‘After the Storm’ (2003), ‘The Makings of Me’ (2006) and ‘Still Standing’(2010). Throughout her career, several of Monica’s singles became number-one hits on the pop and R&B record charts, including “Before You Walk Out Of My Life,” “Don’t Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days),” “Like This and Like That,” “The Boy Is Mine,” “The First Night,” “Angel of Mine,” “So Gone,” and “Everything to Me”.
Monica’s popularity was further enhanced by her roles in television series such as Living Single, Felicity, and American Dreams, and films including Boys and Girls (2000), Love Song (2000), and Pastor Brown (2009). A contributor to the NBC talent show The Voice, in 2008, she appeared in the Peachtree TV reality show special Monica: The Single which tracked the recording of the song “Still Standing” along with her personal life and resulted in her own highly rated BET series Monica: Still Standing, containing a similar concept.
Monica has sold 5.3 million albums in the United States and she is recognized as one of the most successful urban R&B female vocalists to emerge in the mid to late 1990s. According to Billboard, she is the youngest recording act to ever have two consecutive chart-topping hits on the Billboard Top R&B Singles chart, as well as the first artist to top the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart over the span of three consecutive decades (1990s, 2000s, and 2010s). In 2010, Billboard listed Monica at number 24 on its list of the Top 50 R&B and Hip Hop Artists of the past 25 years. A four-time nominee, she won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for “The Boy Is Mine” at the 41st awards ceremony and has been the recipient of one Billboard Music Award, one BET Award, and two BMI Pop Awards.
Dru Hill recorded seven Top 40 hits, and is best known for the R&B #1 hits “In My Bed,” “Never Make a Promise,” and “How Deep Is Your Love”. The group consists of lead singer Mark “Sisqó” Andrews (who went on to have a successful solo career), Tamir “Nokio” Ruffin, Larry “Jazz” Anthony, and James “Woody Rock” Green.
Signing to Island Records through Haqq Islam’s University Records imprint, the group released two successful albums, ‘Dru Hill’ and ‘Enter the Dru,’ before separating for a period from late 1999 to 2002, during which time Sisqó and Woody released solo albums. While Woody’s Soul Music LP was a moderate success in the gospel music industry, Sisqó’s debut album, ‘Unleash the Dragon,’ and its hit singles, “Thong Song” and “Incomplete,” were major pop successes, and established Sisqó as a household name outside Dru Hill.
In 2002, by then part of the Def Soul record label, the group reunited and added fifth member Rufus “Scola” Waller to the lineup for their third album, ‘Dru World Order.’
Jagged Edge signed through Jermaine Dupri’s So So Def Recordings. Their biggest hit singles are “Let’s Get Married” and “Where the Party At,” many of which were produced by Jermaine Dupri. The group’s members include identical twin lead singers Brandon and Brian Casey as well as Kyle Norman and Richard Wingo.
Wingo was a late addition to the group, added after a recommendation from Kandi Burruss of Xscape. Burruss was also the one who brought the group to the attention of Dupri, who signed them to his Columbia Records distributed imprint, So So Def Recordings.
