(PIX11) -- She's the Brooklyn native, R&B singer that emerged into the game as a teen.
Olivia Longott became the first artist signed to Clive Davis' record label: J Records. She also became the first woman to sign to 50 Cent's label: G-Unit Records.
With powerful vocals, many wondered why she left both labels.
While singing, Longott also took to acting. She was an original cast member on VH1's "Love and Hip Hop."
After that role ran its course, Olivia returned to her passion: writing.
Looking back on her experiences and documenting it, Olivia writes a tell-all book dishing on her journey through music, life, experiences, and more.
"Release Me: My Life, My Words" is currently in stores.
