Monica’s music careers spans more than 20 years, she’s sold over 30 million albums worldwide, with seven albums and a Grammy under her belt. As impressive as those numbers are, the Grammy-winning R&B singer takes pride in knowing a more surprising set of figures:  her blood pressure numbers.

And she wants millennials to do the same.

“Millennials are young, passionate and cool, but we say things like, ‘It is what it is,’ but when it comes to your health this does not apply,” she shared in a new video as part of the American Heart Association’sEmPOWERED to Serve initiative.Having high blood pressure isn’t only a concern for older adults.
