26th Anniversary of Monica’s debut album, ‘Miss Thang’

Today marks the 26th anniversary of Monica’s debut album, ‘Miss Thang’, which has been certified 3x Platinum in the US.


‘Miss Thang’ was a nickname given to Monica by producer Dallas Austin during the studio recording sessions of the album because she had sass and acted wise beyond her years.

The album produced four hit singles: ‘Don’t Take It Personal (Just One Of Dem Days)’, ‘Before You Walk Out Of My Life’, ‘Like This And Like That’, and ‘Why I Love You So Much’.

At the age of only fourteen, Monica became the youngest artist to have two consecutive #1 singles on the US R&B chart with ‘Don’t Take It Personal’ and ‘Before You Walk Out Of My Life’.
