July 18th saw Monica celebrate the 25th anniversary of her debut album ‘Miss Thang’.
Released in 1995, the set saw the-then teenage sensation step out onto the scene with a sound filled to the brim with sass, soul and authentic “flava”.
It has sold over 2 million units worldwide to date.
Now watch the ‘Like This and Like That’ performer celebrate the album’s birthday when a release named ‘The Story of ‘Miss Thang’.
25 Years of Miss Thang! I still play play this album like it just dropped today!

Dallas Austin produced the commanding album for Arista Records who watched it permeate Pop culture with the singles ‘Before You Walk Out of My Life‘ and the aforementioned ‘Like This’ which peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Monica’s ascent to fame would open several doors for a number of artists and musicians who would soar into the scene on the wings of her success.
Arguably the biggest? Her former backing vocalist Michelle Williams.
