Perez was discovered in Fort Wayne by a talent scout and signed to the independent record label Powerhowse/Silverstone Records in 2001.[2] Her debut album Where U At? was released in 2002 and included the singles "Never" and "Angel". "Never" peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 sales chart, but the album itself did not see much success until it was re-released by Virgin Records to a wider distribution area under the new title, "Angel". Perez's most popular single to date, "Angel", peaked at #20 on the Hot 100 sales chart and #3 at Top 40 Radio.

Mighty Mike Quinn of Silverstone/Powerhowse Records directed and produced four music videos for Perez, which all aired on MTV, VH1 and BET. The album was produced by Quinn and co-produced by Powerhowse producer/DJ Tony Palacios. DJ Tony P. was Perez touring DJ during her initial rise to popularity and a former radio employee-friend of Quinn.

Perez notably charted at #7 on the popular MTV viewer request show Total Request Live. She has had moderate success since departing from the original producers in 2005.

Subsequently, she took time off to care for her mother who was diagnosed with cancer. In 2004 Quinn's Silverstone/Powerhowse label partnered to released her second album, this time with Virgin Records, as a joint effort.

"I Pray", the title track, was the first single off the album, and would prove to be the last time writer-producer Mike Quinn would work with Perez on an album. The second single, "Dedicate (Remix)", featured Layzie Bone of Bone Thugs under the direction of Quinn.

Shortly after its release, Perez parted ways with her original label and the writer-producer. Her next album, The Hand of Fate, was to be released on Virgin under Perez's direction, but she was soon released from her contract due to legal conflicts and Virgin's unwillingness to effect Quinn's original agreements.

In 2007 Upstairs Records released a special album dedicated to Perez's mother's death. The lone single from that album, "Candy Kisses," did not break any records, but it had success on the Top 40/Rhythmic Chart, peaking at #17.

In 2013, Perez and A-Hype Records released the single "Freak For The Weekend", the first single from the album Unexpected.

On October 21, 2016, Perez announced that she was working on her sixth studio album in an interview with Power 98.3 & 101.9. She intended for a December 2016 release but the album was later announced to be released in early 2017. She has posted many clips of material she is working on via her official Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.

In February 2017 Perez announced that she will release a Greatest Hits album entitled 15 Years of Greatest Hits that will only be available for purchase at her live shows.
