The ‘90s produced some great music and while some of these artists like Beyonce, Britney Spears and Gwen Stefani have stuck around, there are a number of others that faded from the spotlight and were subsequently forgotten. Below, we have tracked down 12 popular but forgotten singers from the ‘90s and found out what they have been up to!

12. Macy Gray

Macy Gray was catapulted to fame when she released her first album On How Life Is, which featured the hit single “I Try.” While she won a Grammy for that single, her subsequent albums failed to garner the same type of success. Since the early 2000s, she has been appearing in film and television roles, including Training Day, Spider-Man, For Colored Girls, and The Paperboy, which also starred Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, John Cusack and Nicole Kidman. The last album she released was in 2016.

Monica rose to fame when she released her debut album, Miss Thang, in 1995. Featuring two hit singles “Don’t Take It Personal” and “Before You Walk Out of My Life,” the album went multiplatinum. Her second album, The Boy Is Mine, produced two other chart toppers, “The First Night” and “Angel of Mine.” After her success with music, she appeared in the movie Boys and Girls and in episodes of the TV shows Felicity and American Dreams. She also had her own reality show, Monica: Still Standing and appeared in the debut season of The Voice as an advisor to coach Cee Lo Green. Her most recent album, Code Red, was released in 2015 and debuted at number 27 on the US Billboard 200 chart.
