Nom de naissance Monica Denise Arnold
Nationalité Etats-Unis
Naissance 24 octobre 1980 (39 ans) à Atlanta (Etats-Unis)

Monica Denise Brown, simply known as Monica (née Arnold; born October 24, 1980), is an American singer, producer, and actress. 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. Guided and developed by record producers Dallas Austin and Tim & Bob, Monica signed with Arista at age thirteen and released her debut album Miss Thang in 1995. It sold 1.5 million in the US, while its first two singles "Don't Take It Personal" and "Before You Walk Out of My Life" made her the youngest recording act to ever have two consecutive chart-topping hits on the Billboard Top R&B Singles chart. She also released her fourth Top 10 hit from the album titled, "Why I Love You So Much".

In 1998, Monica's second album The Boy Is Mine earned her major international chart success. Pushed by its Grammy Award-winning number-one hit title track, a duet with singer Brandy, it spawned two further Billboard Hot 100 chart-toppers, "The First Night" and "Angel of Mine", and established her position as one of the most successful of the urban R&B female vocalists to emerge in the mid to late-1990s. The album also featured the Top 10 platinum selling hit "For You I Will", which originated from the film starring Michael Jordan called Space Jam and it's soundtrack.

Monica also ventured into acting, with a supporting role in Boys and Girls (2000), and starring roles in television film Love Song (2000). During the production of her third album, All Eyez on Me (2002), Monica experienced personal struggles and her career went under hiatus. In 2003, her fourth album, After the Storm, was released, and after an unsuccessful period, she scored her fifth number one single on the US R&B/Hip Hop, "So Gone". The album also included her Top 20 Billboard Hot 100 hit "U Should've Known Better". Her sixth album, Still Standing, which recording was tracked by her BET reality show Monica: Still Standing, was released in 2010 and produced the hit single "Everything to Me", which became her sixth number one hit on the US R&B/Hip Hop.

Monica has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, including over 10 million units in the United States alone. With a career lasting over 15 years, she became the first artist to top the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in the 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.


Monica's career came to a slow down in 1999 due to relationship problems with her ex-boyfriend Jarvis Weems. On July 2000, the couple were together at the graveside of Weems's brother, who had died in an automobile accident at age 25 in 1998, when Weems, without warning, put a gun to his head and committed suicide. "Afterward, I felt, 'What else could I have done?' You replay that situation over and over and you switch it around: Maybe if I had said this, or if I would have done that,'" she said in an interview with the The Cincinnati Enquirer the following year. "It's just something that it's never possible for me to go back and change."

Monica met rapper Rodney "Rocko" Hill, a former SWA officer and real estate manager, shortly after her ex-boyfriend Jarvis Weems's suicide in 2000, a time which she described as her "weakest." While the couple soon began dating in fall of the same year, they ended their relationship in 2004. A few months later, Monica and Hill revived their relationship and she became pregnant with their first child. On May 21, 2005, she gave birth to their first son, Rodney Ramone Hill III. Monica and Hill became engaged once again on Christmas Eve 2007, just a few days prior to the birth of their second child on January 8, 2008. The son was named Romelo Montez Hill, named after Monica's younger brother. The two later parted ways.

In June 2010, Monica met NBA player Shannon Brown when looking for someone to play the love interest in her video for "Love All Over Me". Monica later announced her engagement to Brown via her Twitter account, posting a photo of a rose-cut diamond ring. On November 22, 2010, the couple married in a secret ceremony at their Los Angeles home. The marriage, however, did not become a matter of public record until January 21, 2011, when Brown told the Hip-Hop Non-Stop TV-Show. They had a second wedding ceremony for family and friends in July 2011. On September 3, 2013, Monica gave birth to her third child, Laiyah Shannon Brown.
