Olivia Longott from "Love & Hip Hop" stars in the VH1 reality docu-soap series.

Olivia Longott is the former first lady of G-Unit. She is done living in the shadows though and is determined to make it on her own as a solo artist.

Olivia is not only a singer/songwriter but also a composer, producer, arranger and much more. While most little girls were playing with dolls Olivia was using her playtime to write music and poetry. She realized very early that she truly had a passion for the arts. This Jamaican born beauty first poetry work was published in the book "Shadows and Light" and was then inducted into the National Library of Congress just four years later. Even though she loved poetry her passion was to pursue music. Olivia always knew she wanted to be a vocalist and singing at her parents church on Sundays made her appreciate the beauty of sound. Her family decided to allow her to explore her musical abilities by taking guitar, piano and vocal training lessons. After a very short period of time they realized she was a natural! Olivia was ready to pursue her dream of becoming a recording artist and a songwriter. Even though Olivia's vocal ability was almost impossible to ignore her parents believed that a quality education came first.

She graduated from Bayside High School in Queens, New York, and immediately continued her education at Hofstra University. She then transferred to Five Towns College to pursue her passion for the music that she so loved. When she wasn't attending classes or studying she was working hard in the studio writing and recording music. It took her no time to complete her very first album. Olivia then signed a production deal with Tallest Tree and got an opportunity to work with one of her favorite artist's, R&B Crooner Joe. To Joe's surprise her professionalism and work ethic was already that of a super star as she worked tirelessly in the studio.

Olivia's reputation quickly landed her 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 mold her into a super star. 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.

Although she greatly respected and admired Mr. Davis, her debut album caught the ear of many other music executives, including Jimmy Iovine, who enticed her to sign a new record deal at Interscope Records. Super Producer Dr. Dre and Rap Icon 50 Cent both expressed extreme interest in Olivia once she was on Interscope. 50 Cent prevailed and she soon joined him as The First Lady of G-Unit. With Chris Lighty and the entire Violator team behind G-Unit's only female R&B artist she quickly flourished. Hits like "Candy Shop" and "Best Friend" brought the versatile artist to radio around the world.

Wanting to expand her musical gifts beyond the hooks of rap records, the now seasoned Olivia has chosen to take command of her own career. She is more focused than ever before, touring and creating her new album "Show the World," which showcases her harmonious vocal and writing talents. The album includes up tempos, mid tempos, and ballads that incorporate collaborations with Missy Elliott, Neyo, Bryan Michael Cox, Rockwilder, the incomparable Miss Betty Wright and many more. Olivia is not only busy touring and working on her album but she's also feverously in the studio writing new hits for a variety of artists, creating a clothing line with Victoria's Secret as well as producing her very own recording artists. Rapper Bingo aka "Midnight Chris" and Reggae artist Boneyman. Since leaving G-Unit, Olivia has been focused on creating a new persona that has expanded beyond just hip-hop.

Based off of the hypnotic first single, "Take It Off," Olivia Is forging a new flame in R&B. Her pursuit and love of music will cement her within the industry for years to come. She will continue to prove that she has numerous talents to "Show the World."
