  • She is best known for her solo work, as well as numerous collaborations with other artists and her brief stint as part of hip hop group the Firm.
  • Brown was raised in Brooklyn, New York, where her father, Winston Marchand abandoned the family at a young age to pursue his career at ERAC records.
