Monica Brown has always been one of my favorite Atlanta artists and just a few days ago, she celebrated the 20th anniversary of her first album, Ms. Thang!
Producer Dallas Austin, who is hailed as the driving force behind TLC’s rise to stardom, saw Monica do a rendition of Whitney Houston’s “Greatest Love of All” and was so impressed that he took her under his wing and signed her to his Arista Records-distributed label, Rowdy Records.
It was on July 18, 1995, that Monica’s debut album hit shelves to much fanfare and acclaim for her strong vocals and feisty swagger. Ms. Thang peaked at No. 7 on Billboard‘s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and produced multiple hit singles, like “Don’t Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days),” and the double A-Side single, “Before You Walk Out of My Life” and “Why I Love You So Much.” Both singles peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, making Monica the youngest artist in history — she was 14 at the time — with consecutive No. 1 songs.
Both Dallas and Monica hit the net recently to reminisce about the album that started it all for the talented songstress.
