There have been quite a few R&B divas in the past decade who made a splash on the music scene, but none have done it quite like this gal in the above Guess Who. In addition to hitting the scene under the tutelage of Tupac Shakur, this Oakland singer won over audiences with her raw talent and true-to-life music.
This former redhead wasn’t shy about putting her life out there, and to prove it she even brought audiences into her home in 2006 with a reality TV show that followed her singing career and somewhat strained relationship with her birth mother.
In 2008, this Cali performer would go on to receive her first Grammy nomination for her work with Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott and rapper Lil’ Kim. About a year later, she began dating her NBA player boyfriend-turned-husband, and the couple welcomed a son in 2010.
Again, this gal brought the cameras into her life in 2012 with a reality show, which followed her as she worked on her fifth studio album.
Unfortunately, this gal has also seen her share of troubles — including a riff with Beyonce and a very public spat with her own hubby and singer Michelle Williams — but she’s definitely keeping it moving with her shoe collection by Steve Madden. She also recently released singles off her sixth studio album.
