Christina Milian is a multi-talented phenomenon whose resume includes film, television, theater and music. Milian is poised to take the entertainment industry by storm.
You know her from the infectious single "AM To PM" which hit the top position on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart in 2001, yet that was just a taste of what this multi-faceted young woman is capable of. An accomplished singer, songwriter, dancer, TV personality and actress, Christina has become a star of international proportions. She?s gone platinum, written hits for a slew of international acts, hosted MTV?s 'Wannabes,' enjoyed two Top 5 hits on the UK charts, recorded a smash that was #1 on RadioDisney for 12 weeks, had roles in several feature films and brought her intoxicating pop/R&B grooves world wide.
Add to Christina's amazing list of accomplishments this; her long-awaited Island release It's About Time. Featuring production from some of the heaviest hitters in R&B including Warryn Campbell (Alicia Keys, Brandy), Corey Rooney (Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey), Polli Paul (Black Eyed Peas), Bryan Cox (Usher, Lil Bow Wow) and songs co-written by Christina, It's About Time is a sizzling indication of who Christina is and where she's at.
As Christina explains it, "Obviously the title refers to the length of time that it took me to complete this and finally have an album available in the US. But the other meaning is that I've learned that everything in my career has to do with timing. Clearly I could have rushed to put an album out two years ago when I first had a hit single, but because I had to wait, it worked out for the best. Everything happened for a reason, and it's made me who I am. Which means that this album is really a reflection of me."
Another track guaranteed to make you move is the rhythmic "Peanut Butta and Jelly," produced by KP and EZ Tommy. "I love that song," Christina offers. "It's got this real energized beat; it totally makes you wanna dance. Although Christina is one of the industry's most in-demand songwriters (she co-wrote Jennifer Lopez?s hit "Play"), sometimes she seeks out inspiration elsewhere.
Born to Cuban native parents in New Jersey and raised in Maryland, Christina has had her eyes on the prize since she was only four years old. "I remember as a kid watching TV and I'd try to get inside of the television. That's how much I wanted to be a star!"
While still young, Christina landed a role in a musical theater play and later parlayed that into a recurring part on the Disney Channel's 'Movie Surfers.' At 13 Christina and her mom (who she cites as a major support) moved to Los Angeles so that Christina could pursue acting. Christina landed guest spots on TV shows such like 'Charmed' and 'Sister Sister' and provided voice over work for the #1 film A Bug's Life.
In 2000 Christina gained worldwide fame when her girlish vocals were showcased on Ja Rule's #1 hit "Between Me and You". Soon everyone was wondering who was that girl singing the hook and Christina's star began to rise.
So get ready for her smashing debut album, because this talented young singer is about to descend upon audiences everywhere with her unique sound and style. Her music is cutting edge, with a wide range of influences, and with her distinctive sound and personality, Christina will inspire people everywhere.
