Biography

Jersey City, New Jersey, United States (2001 – present)

Christina Milian (born Christine Marie Flores on September 26, 1981) is an American and singer-songwriter, record producer, dancer, actress, and former MTV VJ.

Milian was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, United States, to Cuban parents Don and Carmen. She has two younger sisters, Dannielle and Elizabeth. Her family moved to Waldorf, Maryland soon after her birth and she set her heart on an entertainment career at the age of four. Milian shot commercials for (Wendy’s, Honeycomb) and played the lead role in the musical Annie before moving to Los Angeles at thirteen to pursue an acting career. Soon after the family’s move, her father divorced her mother. Milian graduated from Westlake High School in Waldorf, Maryland; and also attended Matthew Henson Middle School in Indian Head, Maryland.

In 2000, Milian made her first official musical appearance on Ja Rule’s second studio album Rule 3:36, performing guest vocals on his song “Between me and you”. Released as the album’s lead single in 2001, the track managed to peak at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and in the top 30 of the UK singles chart, building Milian’s reputation as a singer. Milian also appeared in Mýa’s video for “Best Of Me” playing a friend. In the meantime Milian co-wrote and provided extensive backing vocals for the track “Play” for Jennifer Lopez’s 2001 album J. Lo which became another success. Milian would later pass down the song to Lopez because of already having a club song with “AM to PM” as promotion. She also went on to co-write “Same Ol’ Same Ol”, the first single from girl group PYT’s debut album Down With Me.
