While working with Disney, Raven signed to their record label and released her third album, This Is My Time. She starred in the Disney Channel Original movie The Cheetah Girls. The group’s first album was certified double platinum and the group toured internationally. But Raven’s time in the spotlight proved uneasy.

The next year, she left the show to pursue a reboot of That’s So Raven. The reboot became Raven’s Home. The show has had four seasons with Raven serving as an executive producer.
