With a career spanning over 12 years, Olivia has worked with some of the industry’s top labels. The first artist signed to Clive Davis’ J Records, the Queens native released her self-titled debut on April 17, 2001. Three years later, she signed to G-Unit as the first female on their roster. For years, she was featured on G-Unit’s hottest singles and released a few of her own, including “Twist It” and “Best Friend.” But when the label shelved her second LP, the R&B songstress took the independent route, making guest appearances while she sang, wrote and promoted her own singles and mixtapes. In 2011, she landed a role on VH1’s Love & Hip Hop, where her struggle to find a new label was documented. Later that same year, Olivia’s single “December” resonated with fans and rocketed her career to a new height.
