Monica Naranjo biography (bio):
Monica Naranjo is a Spanish singer born in Figueras, a village in Catalonia near Cadaques, Spain.
She started singing at a very young age. Cristobal Sansano became her first producer. After signing with Sony Music, she recorded her debut album, Mónica Naranjo, in 1994. The album resulted in the hit songs Sola, Solo Se Vive Una Vez, El Amor Ccoloca, and Oyeme.
In April of 1996, the artist received acclamations during a performance at Mexico City's Metropolitan Theater. Taking advantage of her popularity, a second album, Palabra de Mujer, was issued. The album was a hit, managing to sell more than 2.5 million copies in the United States and Spain, thanks to songs such as Desátame, Pantera en Libertad, Las Campanas del Amor, Entender el Amor, and Empiezo a Recordarte.
In 2000, she released her third album, Minage, a homage to the great Italian diva Mina, which included the songs Sobreviviré, If You Leave Me Now, and Enamorada. They were all a complete success. After having achieved widespread acceptance in Europe, she managed to sing with Pavarotti and Mina herself.
In 2001, she released Chicas Malas, an album with several amazing collaborations, among them Diane Warren, Gregg Alexander, John Reid, and many more. It was an excessively commercial dance album that did not achieve the success hoped for.
In 2003, as claimed by her fans, she recorded the English version of Chicas Malas, Bad Girls.
In 2005, after a long musical rest, Mónica returned with a greatest hits album, Colección Privada, a big success that only contains one new song, Enamorada de Ti. With this album, Mónica closes a stage in her life and career. In December, she sang Punto de Partida with Rocío Jurado in a TV homage titled Rocío... Siempre.
She is currently working on a new album that is expected to be released at the beginning of 2007.
