Success

In 2001, Perez released her first single which was entitled "Never." "Never" became Perez's first charting single of her career and it peaked at number 79 on the U.S Billboard Hot 100 sales chart.
Where you at This successful start was followed by the release of Perez's first album in 2002 which was entitled, "Where you at?" The album was produced by the Los Angeles radio DJ and A and R music producer Mighty Mickey Quinn who is more famously known by his stage name as Mike Q. Unlike before, when her single was released under the Upstairs record label, Perez's album was released under Powerhowse Records in Beverly Hills, California. The co-production of the LP also included a strong influence from Los Angeles based producer Tony Palacios.
