During the following year she made her co-songwriting debut for the track "Play" on Jennifer Lopez's J-Lo album and "Same Ol' Same Ol'" for the PYT Down With Me album. 2001 also saw the successful release of her own eponymous debut album, although it was not released in America as a result of 9/11.America had to wait until 2003 for a Christina Milian album, when It's About Time was unleashed. After all the waiting it proved to be something of a disappointment; the reviews were good but the sales were less than expected. Nonetheless, the single "Dip It Low" was a smash hit in several dance charts internationally. So Amazin' (2006) also failed to capture the promise of stellar sales though it performed well by most standards, reaching No.11 in the US and No.67 in the UK.Milian has maintained a successful acting career in parallel to her musical endeavors and has appeared in film and television.Christina Milian Official Fan Club:P.O.

From Wikipedia:

Christine Flores (born September 26, 1981), better known by her stage name Christina Milian (pronounced /ˌmɪlin/), is an American R&B singer-songwriter, record producer, actress, dancer and model. Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, Milian moved to Los Angeles when she was 13 years old, desiring to be an actress. By the age of 17, Milian had begun writing songs to help obtain a recording contract. Milian has released three studio albums, and has finished recording a fourth, Elope, which is scheduled for a 2010 release.

Milian's self-titled debut album was released in 2001, and features the singles "AM to PM" and "When You Look at Me"; both peaked in the top three on the UK Singles Chart. The singer's second studio album, It's About Time (2004), provided her first major US hit "Dip It Low". Milian's third studio album, So Amazin' (2006), produced only one single, "Say I". A month after the release of So Amazin', Milian's representative confirmed that she had left Island Records due to creative differences. Milian signed with Interscope Records in 2009, through which she will release her album, Elope. A single, ballad "Us Against the World", was released in October 2008.

Her first lead role was in the 2003 film Love Don't Cost a Thing, and subsequently had main roles in Be Cool and the horror film Pulse. Milian had a minor role in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, and starred as the lead role in the straight-to-DVD film Bring It On: Fight to the Finish.
