Canela - Canela (2001)
In 2000, Canela was featured on Jennifer Lopez's multi-plantinum selling single, "Love Don't Cost a Thing". Though Canela was uncredited for her work on Lopez's song, she performed as Lopez's background vocalist for numerous tours and new songs. While performing with Lopez at a Los Angeles concert, her talent was recognized by Rodney Jerkins, who brought her to DreamWorks Records' attention, and was immediately signed to the label in 2001.

In early 2001, Canela began to record for her self-titled debut album, which featured production by Darkchild, Lil' Mo, The Funktwons, Fred Jerkins III, Brycyn Evans, & DJ Clue. She and Dreamworks announced at the time that it would be released sometime in December 2001.

Her buzz single, "Sponsor", was released to radio during the process of the recording for her album. In addition to its release, a DJ Clue remix, featuring Fabolous, was released to mixtape circuits, which received heavy underground play. Both versions of the single, however, failed to chart.

Months following the failure of Canela's previous single, "Everything", produced by Darkchild, was released to radio as the official lead single for her debut. A music video was shot for the song, and was able to be viewed on BET's 106 & Park. However, "Everything" suffered the same failure as her buzz single. Because her single failed to chart, Dreamworks Records put a hault on Canela's debut.

In December 2001, just days before Canela's debut was to be released, DreamWorks Records was bought by Universal Music Group, which caused the label to fold, thus her debut was shelved.
