"What a challenge and adrenaline rush it was to shoot this scene all in one day, but in the end I'm so proud of the finished product," shares Monroe. "'Hurricane' is the final scene of 'Book of Love.' My character, which in a way is a depiction of my real life shown through an artistic fictional approach, has been beaten and battered on this long winding journey. He meets a Bedouin man in the middle of the desert to forewarn him of the winds to come and the mystical woman with powers I will meet soon enough."

Monroe got his start in the entertainment industry when he landed the role of Chip in the first national tour of the Broadway production of Beauty and the Beast. He went on to star in other productions including, The Sound Of Music, Oliver, and The Prince And The Pauper. Monroe signed to Warner Bros. Records, under which he released his first top 40 single "Love Struck" as lead singer for the boy band V Factory. He went on to star in multiple prime time TV and film roles including Parenthood on NBC, the MGM remake of Fame, and The Mentalist on CBS.

Monroe then signed as a flagship solo artist to the music label N*E*R*D Empire Entertainment. The singer was named one of MTV's Top Ten Artists, alongside other artists such as Frank Ocean, Lana Del Rey, and Avicii. Singles "Here With You" (co-written by Monroe and produced by One Republic frontman Ryan Tedder) and "Hush Hush" quickly broke the top 10 on the Billboard Dance charts as Monroe began recording collaborations in with Chris Brown and Sean Kingston. His video for "Memory," featuring Brown, garnered over 2.6 million YouTube views. In 2018, he released singles "My First Lady" and "Forever," which premiered with PerezHilton.
