When I think about some of my favorite songs from my teenybopper years, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Monica[/lastfm] immediately comes to mind.

We already relived the glory of “The Boy Is Mine” in our Throwback Thursday segment, but that’s in the past!

The R&B singer is still making her mark in the industry in 2011.

So what has [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Monica[/lastfm] been up to lately? So glad you asked!

[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Monica[/lastfm] has been keeping busy as both a singer and an entrepreneur.

Besides gearing up for the release of her latest album, New Life, she’s also been appearing on NBC’s The Voice as an advisor to [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cee Lo Green[/lastfm]‘s team.

She told Carson all about what it’s like to work in this unique role on the show:

[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Monica[/lastfm] and Cee Lo go way back.  She met the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Gnarls Barkley[/lastfm] front man when she was only 12 years old!

Him [Cee Lo Green] being a judge on the show is so fitting because he is one that breaks boundaries.  I mean, he’s immensely talented. He’s very confident and self-assured and very knowledgeable about music, so it really gives all of our team, the 8 we started with, a great person to learn so many things from and I’m just thankful that he called me on to be an advisor.

But the job isn’t as easy as it looks. Things get tense when it comes to the competitive battle rounds:

I guess I get a little emotional when we have battle rounds like with did with Niki and Vicci. That was hard for me to let go of.  I mean, Cee Lo and I were still talking about it every day almost a week later.
