Bio

Olivia Longott, professionally known as Olivia, is an American R&B singer and reality television personality best known as one of the stars of the docu-reality series Love & Hip Hop, since 2011.

At 19, she landed a meeting with an Arista executive who then introduced her to the legendary Clive Davis. He was so blown away by the 19 year old's vocal ability and raw talent that he decided to sign Olivia immediately as the first artist to his newly established label, J records.

Clive took her under his wing mentoring her and showing her what the music business was all about; ultimately helping mould her. Her gold selling song "Bizounce" was the lead single for the release of her self titled debut album in 2000, which eventually sold close to 500,000 copies.

Later, after signing a deal with Interscope records, 50 Cent crowned her The First Lady of GUnit. With Chris Lighty and the entire Violator team behind GUnit's only female R&B artist, she quickly flourished. Hits like "Candy Shop" and "Best Friend" brought the artist to radio around the world.

Since leaving GUnit, Olivia has been focused on creating a new persona that has expanded beyond just hip-hop.
