Monica Early life
Monica is the only daughter of Marilyn Best, a Delta Air Lines customer service representative and former church singer of African American descent, and M.C. “Billy” Arnold Jr, who is African American with Indian and Irish ancestry and was a mechanic for an Atlanta freight company.
She has a younger brother, Montez (born in 1983), and a half brother, Jermond Grant, on her father’s side. Monica also is a cousin of record producer Polow da Don, and is related to rapper Ludacris through her mother’s second marriage to Reverend Edward Best, a Methodist minister. She attended North Clayton High School with rapper 2 Chainz.
At the age of 2, Monica followed in her mother’s footsteps with regular performances at the Jones Hill Chapel United Methodist Church in Marilyn’s hometown Newnan, Georgia.
While growing up in the modest circumstances of a single-parent home after her parents’ 1984 separation and 1987 divorce, Monica continued training herself in singing and became a frequent talent-show contestant, winning over 20 local singing competitions throughout her early teenage years.
When she was 10 years old, she became the youngest member of “Charles Thompson and the Majestics”, a traveling 12-person gospel choir.
In 1991, at the age of eleven, Monica 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.
Shortly afterwards Dallas and then staff producers Tim & Bob entered the studio with Monica to start writing and producing her debut Miss Thang, which was eventually released in July 1995 and reached number thirty-six on the U.S. Billboard 200 and number seven on the Top R&B Albums chart.
It was certified triple platinum by the RIAA for more than three million store-shipped copies and produced three top ten singles, including debut single “Don’t Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)” and “Before You Walk Out of My Life”, which made Monica the youngest artist ever to have two consecutive chart-topping hits on the U.S. BillboardHot R&B Singles chart.
Miss Thang subsequently won Monica a Billboard Music Award and garnered her an American Music Award nomination in the Favorite Soul/R&B New Artist category.
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
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; they had previously contributed to After the Storm.
In 2011, Monica joined the debut season of the reality talent show The Voice as an adviser to musician coach Cee Lo Green. In April 2012, her seventh studio album, New Life, was released.
