Monica Denise Brown (née Arnold; born October 24, 1980) is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and entrepreneur. Born and raised in College Park, Georgia, she began performing as a child and became part of a traveling gospel choir at the age of ten. 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).

The album focuses on hip-hop and contemporary urban cuts, including a pair of R&B chart-toppers. The first is "Don't Take It Personal," also a massive pop hit, propelled by a heavy bottom bass with Monica's indelible vocals ringing as she embraces an introspective lyric. The second, "Before You Walk Out of My Life," is a bittersweet lyric with unwavering vocals. Like This and Like That" has that pocket beat; the song's flow is dictated by Monica's vocal chorus and an animated rap by Mr. Malik.

Monica rose to prominence after she signed with Rowdy Records in 1993 and released her debut album Miss Thang two years later. Throughout her career, several of Monica's singles became number-one hits on the pop and R&B record charts, including "Don't Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)", "Like This and Like That", "The Boy Is Mine",.

Miss Thang is the debut studio album by American R&B recording artist Monica. After signing a recording contract with Rowdy Records, at the age of 12, Arnold released her 1995’s debut album Miss Thang; under the Arista record label. Guided by Rowdy-head Dallas Austin and developed by his protégés Tim & Bob. It debuted at number thirty six of the Billboard 200 and reached the top ten on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. Four singles were released for the album; Don’t Take It Personal, Before You Walk Out of My Life, Like This and Like That, and Why I Love You So Much.

Monica made music for every girl who has ever been slapped in the mouth by their mama for being "too grown. More often than not, I got that slap not for the actual text of what I said but for the tone/delivery. I literally used to spend my entire allowance in high school just to get a new CD and Miss Thang was definitely an album that I went a week without getting pizza at lunch for. Monica just reminded me so much of myself. Skinny as hell and short hair don't care and her voice was so soulful yet sassy for her age and I definitely was a sassy something in middle and high school.
