Though Monica just turned forty, the singer has made a name for herself since the release of her debut, “Miss Thang” in 1995.


Bryant’s luxurious gift to her friend comes as no surprise because the two have an 11-year long friendship and have been there for each other in the most challenging times.

Apart from receiving gifts, the singer was also serenaded with sweet words from some famous friends. Taking to Instagram, actress Niecey Nash shared an adorable photo of herself with the birthday girl. She wrote:

"Screaming Happy Birthday @monicadenise ?❤️?? , I miss you, friend!!!"


Snoop Dogg’s wife, Shante Broadus, was also one of the people to wish Monica a happy birthday. She shared a throwback picture with the singer and accompanied it with a sweet birthday note.

Though Monica just turned forty, the singer has made a name for herself since the release of her debut “Miss Thang” in 1995. 

With achievements such as a Grammy Award and several other nominations, Monica has rightfully earned her position as one of the most beautiful soul singers of her time.
