What has Christina Milian done since releasing her breakout debut single "AM to PM" in 2001? The actress and musician stars in the 2019 Netflix romantic comedy Falling Inn Love, but a lot has happened over the past two decades.
In 1999, Milian landed her first movie roles in The Wood and the teen comedy classic American Pie. She then starred as Tina Flores in the Disney Channel series Movie Surfers. As the 21st century began, though, Milian wasn't necessarily a well-known pop culture figure. That all changed when she landed a guest vocal spot on Ja Rule’s 2000 single "Between Me and You" and released her self-titled debut album for Def Jam Recordings. During the summer of 2001, Milian's lead single, "AM to PM", became an international hit, and was later featured in the 2002 comedy The Hot Chick.
Milian may be a well-known singer, but she hasn’t released a solo studio album since 2006. For her 2004 sophomore release, It’s About Time, Milian signed with Island Records and landed another huge international hit with “Dip It Low.” The complementary music video, directed by Matthew Rolston, further elevated Milian's visibility. She also starred opposite Nick Cannon in the 2004 comedy Love Don't Cost a Thing and portrayed Nina in Joseph Kahn’s racing film Torque. Unfortunately, neither of those films were box office hits, and Milian was later dropped from Island Records after the 2006 release of her third studio album, So Amazin'.
In the past decade, Milian has been all over television. She served as The Voice’s social media correspondent, competed in ABC’s Dancing with the Stars season 17 and starred in her own E! reality series. Milian even voiced the character Esther on Fox’s Family Guy. During the past five years, Milian has become more associated with her on-screen acting performances rather than for being a recognizable voice (or being the former girlfriend of musician Lil Wayne).
Now, Milian is probably best known for her role as Christine Parks in Sony Crackle’s crime series The Oath. Looking to the future, Christina Milian has a huge opportunity with Netflix, as she’s not only starring in Falling Inn Love but also landed a role in the upcoming music-themed series Mixtape.
