New Song: Monica – ‘Everything’ (New 1st Single)

Published: Friday 8th Jan 2010 by Sam

After initially announcing that ‘Love Over Me’ and ‘One In A Lifetime’ were to serve as dual lead singles from Monica’s forthcoming ‘Still Standing’ LP, her label J Records have done a 180 and revealed that the track ‘Everything’ will instead now be the record’s first single. The decision was made after the 29 year old’s fans bombarded label execs with requests for the song to be the lead single, a want shared by Monica herself – as highlighted on her BET reality series also titled ‘Still Standing’.

While ‘Everything’ is undoubtedly a great track, it most certainly doesn’t strike me as single material in the slightest. It’s not because it’s not a good song (though the ad-libbing is a bit much and all over the place at times). However it just doesn’t possess that certain something Monica so clearly needs right now – a radio/chart-friendly track, which manages to sound contemporary, yet also incorporates her trademark sound. She’ll no doubt appeal to her fans with this one, yet as history has taught many an artist, sometimes  fans just aren’t enough to ensure a well-selling record. Ever-important to capture and convert is the casual listener. It’ll be interesting to see how this fares nontheless.

    Great song! But its NOT a single!!!!! Whats wrong with todays labels!!!!!?????? having been away for 5 years plus… this is not the right choice for a single!

  2. kenney January 8, 2010

    How many single changes have there been?

  3. therealthing January 8, 2010

    This era is starting to get messy. the label seems to prefer the first choices so if it’s flop, they are saying it’s on her.

    SAM, THIS SONG SAMPLES DENICE WILLIAM’S ‘SILLY OF ME’ RIGHT DOWN TO THE ‘OHS, OH, OHHH0H’

    I don’t know, this song is nice but its a bit too churchy for me. I think that the prior choices may hgave been better especially Love all Over Me

  4. Lovher January 8, 2010

    What strikes me as shocking and disapointing is that we can tell this is a classic and great vocal and art peice that has been presented yet we are still only concerned with her putting out something that is like a Beyonce or Rihanna or COMMERCIAL. This is why r&b is going through what its going through and why urban music is deteriating as a whole. Because we don’t respect what is to be respected. This is what music is about. Agreat vocal filled with passion. Delievering an emotion. Instead of us getting behind it and saying lets ride for this real vocal and make these artist compete on the basis of what this artistry was built on….TALENT! We nit pick at it. Sam come on now this is stupid.

  5. Graduation2009205251 January 8, 2010

    I’m sorry but this is my JAM. I LOVE LOVE LOVEEEE this song. Its just refreshing to hear something that’s not trying to be the garbage that comes out these days. It showcases REAL TALENT, which is sooo far and few these days.

  6. Jason January 8, 2010

    LOVE the song.. But this is not a single! AT ALL!

  7. antertain January 8, 2010

    THIS is a CLASSIC vocal and arrangement and originally i would of had this as 1st single just as a statement of “MONICA is back and her vocal game is better than ever”, however after hearing Love All Over Me it comes across more 1st single friendly than “Everything” as well as making the same vocal statement.

    I actually believe that the label may go with Timbalands theory of pushing a single out there to gain recognition then follow with another song.

    Now that everything is 1st single I feel Love All Over should come as 3rd single.

    Sam if we really check the history of Monica’s success NO song has been up-tempo all her MAJOR hits are slow jams or mid.

  8. TyTy January 8, 2010

    I love Monica to death but this is NOTTTTT asingle material. Her label is screwing her over just like LeToya releasing all the Wrong singles… I would have rather had the song “Still Standing” be released. I been jaming to that since 2008

  9. Enrico January 8, 2010

    I think this a gr8 track. Soulful, heartfelt, etc etc. This is what R&B has been missing. It’s gonna do fine. And the LP, release date of March 9, 2010, is a gonna be a str8 classic.

  10. Big Dam January 8, 2010

    This song is Hot! I cant wait for the new album. Bringing back the soul!

  11. blaze January 8, 2010

    love it. classic monica. good choice., because i now want to buy the cd.

  12. Kingnoah3000 January 8, 2010

    hot hot hot.. A plus monica

  13. Brittany January 8, 2010

    Sam, did you not have a post last week asking a question about how R&B is dead? Everything is what REAL R&B MUSIC IS ABOUT. It’s not about trying to appeal to a “pop audience, it’s about appealing to your core fan base. And Monica’s fan base is R&b lovers. And if you watch her show u will see she do have another single to follow this up with and its called Love All Over Me. So i think the label released this to let people know that Monica is back and she’s doing what she do best and that’s using her god-given talent. She doesn’t need a gimmick to generate sales.

    Lovher, I completely agree…but this song is boring. If I wanted to go to church, I’d go to church.

  15. MellyMel January 8, 2010

    Lovher…testify!!

    We have been spoon fed Rihanna(non singing b***), Beyonce overload, autotune, & lip-syching Britney Spears…that folks are use to hearing garbage & can no longer tell what real music is. R&B is DEAD…the voice of Anita Baker, Patti Labelle, etc is lost. The Voice is what we use to listen too. Whitney & Mariah voices are not up to par as it was back in the 90’s…who is going to save us….ONLY BEYONCE…c’mon…this is real music for the grown & s*** & a young man like me can appreciate it!!

  16. Khalil January 8, 2010

    First of all Sam, please fallback with your reviews. Next this track is just what we need on radio. Real authentic soulful singing. Not that get up and pop ya a$$ every ten minutes. Monica is a vocal beast and everytime she sings its flawless! She is a true artist and she listens to what her fans want to hear. Just singing. So if she sells 10 million or 10 thousand we still we be right here. We need music like this. And TY TY no still standing was released and nobody requested it. It peak at #86 on the hot 100 last year. She is doing right. Although that is my jam. This album is going to be fire. *Team Monica* stand up!!! Let’s rep our girl!

  17. GeeMan January 8, 2010

    So soulful this is R&B and this what r&b music should be and sound like and as someone already mentioned her strength as far as music are her ballad and mid tempos. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Also Monica has stated she wanted to really sing and showcase her talent as a vocalist and this song does that church feel or not it gave me chiills.

  18. TRUTH January 8, 2010

    HEARD IT THIS MORNING ON V103 ATLANTA, MONICA’S HOMIE RADIO STATION. IT ACTUALLY STOOD OUT AMONGST ALL THE OTHER CRAP THEY WERE PLAYING. WHY? BECAUSE OF THE VOCALS. YEA IT HAS THE OLD SKOOL RHYTHMN AND SOUNDS A BIT OUT OF DATE BUT THAT’S WHAT MADE IT DIFFERENT. ONLY OTHER RNB SONG THAT CATCHES IS MELONIE FIONA’S IT KILLS. OTHER THAN THESE 2 THE REST CRAPPED. EVEN MAXWELL’S NEW SINGLES SUCK.

  19. Mya January 8, 2010

    Music is changing and what Monica is doing it’s not going that way. Beyonce,Britney and Lady Gaga are leading the Sound Music chances all the time now is going for a Dance more Pop worldwide sound and if you can’t keep up you will be left behind. Now Mo can sing her But off she should get songs like Beyonce’s Halo you know BIG sounds that you can here around the World! BIG SONGS ARE IN

  20. TJ January 8, 2010

    Sam, while I usually agree with you… you’re smoking crack on this review… This song is REAL R&B. Monica is a vocal beast. I’m so sick and tired of people who nit pick on singers who deliver the good in the arena of R&B when it doesn’t fit POP. SHE had one goal and one goal only… TO SANG, not SING.. and she is SANGING!!!!!

    TEAM MONICA 2010 !!!!!

  21. chris January 8, 2010

    LOVE IT! I AM ALL FOR TEAM MONICA!

  22. Khalil January 8, 2010

    I am so please to see people are riding for *TEAM MONICA* Lets push are girl. If you guys are not members go over to http://www.monicasoul.com and join so we can get our girl out there. BTW did I say I love this song

  23. B-Diddy January 8, 2010

    There is none greater, Monica has the Voice, the Talent, and the drive. Yes, Beyonce is good but I for one am tired of hearing the same ole mess. This song is amazing and I think the Album will do well think its gonna be a (Classic). This song is old skool but she brings a new urban twist to it, So think what u may but this is a JAM!!!!

  24. Khalil January 8, 2010

    I know thats right B-Diddy

  25. Erica January 8, 2010

    It sounds okay, it’s not her best..and Ive been rollin wit’ monica since the start. It just sounds like she’s struggling REALLY hard on this song. Why would they make her recreate this song, Denise williams is like a first and second soprano..

    I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee monica, don’t get me wrong, but this song doesn’t fit her range at all…she was really struggling bad from start to finish.. everything else is cool monica..but this one…not sure. =]

  26. Alex January 8, 2010

    Looks like Monicas fans dont want her to succeed. This is a nice song, would make a great album closer but definitely not lead single material. Monica was headed in the right direction wit Love All Over Me & Once In A Lifetime. What a shame

  27. kinglsley January 8, 2010

    This song doesn’t have a hook. I’m loving the 80’s throwback vibe but its so short. I’ve listened to this song 6xs now and i can’t sing one line from it except ‘everything’. I hope this does well but i think the label should have once ina lifetime lined up to go

  28. BC January 8, 2010

    Who are these “fans” that voted for this song to be the first single? Are these the same “fans” that will be downloading her album when it leaks instead of buying it? I’m just sayin’ because I am a Monica fan (sans Makings of Me) and I would not vote for this song to be a single. Singles are meant to draw interest, introduce the artist, and promote. Remember Destiny Fullfilled? Lose My Breath was crazy club hard and the rest of the album was like R&B ballads. Total scam but people sure bought the album because that song was everywhere. Just because something is Urban pop or crosses over doesn’t mean it’s a gimmick. She could sing her heart out on a pop ballad or epic ballad just as easily as this track. Leona does it very well.

  29. Myke757 January 8, 2010

    On the fence on this as a single choice b/c the market is very pop/dance right now but that maybe why this will stand out..but there is no denying that this song is great.

  30. antertain January 8, 2010

    Did someone say there’s no hook after playing it 6x’s

    errrmm
    “You’re everything to meeeeeeee, The air that i breathe, My sun, soul & sea, You’re everything to me”

    Did a miss something here.

    MONICA is far from struggling in this song. She grown vocally and pushing the passion the song desires..

    People really need to feel the essence of old skool REAL music cus this is what this is about. Bringin raw soul back to the limelight.

    IT’S ABOUT TIME!!!

    {sidenote: I was on monicasoul website and caught the twitter clip of monica singing and her youngsest son 2y.o Romelo (Happy B’day 2him) copying it it was so cute http://www.twitvid.com/61F1E & i guessin another singer can be un-earthed if keeps doing it}

  31. TJ January 8, 2010

    I hate to say it.. Erica… You sound totally stupid. Where in this song does she “struggle”? I’ve even heard her sing this song live, and she does it… exactly like she does on the track. So, I’m confused on how she is struggling.

    TEAM MONICA 2010

  32. beready January 8, 2010

    THIS SONG IS NICE
    I DONT SEE IT AS SINGLE MATERIAL
    NOR DO I SEE IT AS TOPPING THE CHARTS
    BUT THEY SHOULD GO WITH ONCE IN A LIFETIME OR
    BETCHA SHE DOESN’T LOVE YOU
    THOSE SONG ARE HOT (FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
    BUT IF SHE CAN PROVE PEOPLE WRONG
    BY DOING WHAT SHE FEELS IS RIGHT
    I STILL HAVE RESPECT FOR HER
    SHE IS VERY GIFTED (VOCALLY)
    SOMETIMES CHANGE IS GOOD
    LOOK HOW EVERYONE CRITICIZED NE-YO
    WHEN CLOSER AND MISS INDEPENDENT CAME OUT
    BUT IT EVENTUALLY BECAME AN ANTHEM
    CREATIVITY IS GOOD FOR THIS INDUSTRY
    THE SAME OLD SAME OLD DON’T ALWAYS WORK

  33. B-Diddy January 8, 2010

    Ok that all may be true about the first single being a club record but she did that for her last album and it didn’t work remember (Everytime he Beat Drops)…………

  34. Steffon January 8, 2010

    Love the song! Great choice

  35. tarshaya January 8, 2010

    love,love monica but the single she should put out is
    “Here i am”.
    That song is hot!!!!! period ………

  36. True January 8, 2010

    What numerous people are forgetting is Monica wants to do an album that is a reflection of who she is. Monica’s most notorious hits have been ballads. Most of the up-tempo songs she has done have not been hits like her ballads. People Monica can sing! She is not trying to appeal to people who are not on the R&B level she is. I really don’t think she cares about the pop charts. We cannot compare her to Beyonce Rihanna or Lady Gaga. (Lady Gaga is another one with an amazing and soulful voice, who does much better when she is not wearing the hand me downs of Grace Jones). I understand what Monica is setting out to do. I hope people will support her efforts. We live in a time where people do not sing anymore. There are very few female artist who can blow likd this. I miss Kelly Price, Deborah Cox and Tamia. Taima’s Between Friends was a classic album and there were not gimmicks, She just sang. So I must say I like this song it’s a big ballad. Will it hit number one? I believe it will soar on the R&B charts. It will slowly climb up the top 50 for Pop.

  37. ALLNIGHTDONTSTOP2010 January 8, 2010

    I totally disagree with some of the comments this is the early 90’s Monica to whom I’ve grown and love with over the years vocally she is insane I so love this record if they strongly push this as a single and it gets the proper recognition this will be good for Monica. Love it a million

  38. Me Me Me January 8, 2010

    Just request the damn song at your radio stations all you wanna be music critics

  39. b a a n q b a a n q .. January 8, 2010

    omqshh iiye lovee thiis sonqq .. monicaa iiys amaaziinq <3 ;* :]

  40. Dave January 8, 2010

    I completely agree w/ LOVHER & ANTERTAIN; everyone else needs to stfu. She’s not doing that poppy, commercial s***, end. If y’all not happy listen to that b******* ass music Beyonce, Rihanna, and Gaga put out. That’s not Monica. It IS SINGLE worthy, just like “It Kills Me” by Melanie Fiona which is now #1 on Billboard R&B & has gained some recognition on Billboard hot100. Monica is gonna do her, and makes music that expresses her. Everything is still up in there, just like last week she said “One in a Lifetime” & “Love All Over Me” would be singles, and clearly it’s changed this week. I WAS one of the fans who told her, and requested her team release that as a single, and I AM THE SAME ONE, BUYING THESE DAMN ARTIST’S ALBUMS. So, don’t bring that upon everybody, because some people actually do buy albums. So, regardless of what the song may do it’s a great song, and a great choice that NEEDS to be released, TEAM MONICA! & to the person who said she was struggling in a song, goodbye, nowhere in the songs did she struggle she was on a vocal prowess, end.

  41. anonymouss January 8, 2010

    i like dat she bringing some old school r&b flavors back…but still this song is a bit boring. it lacks…something.

  42. MAH January 8, 2010

    I think its right to question whether or not this song is a single kind of song. For some artists the answer would be an easy “No,” but for someone like Monica the answer is “yes.” I think its important to keep in mind what kind of artist Monica is and has been, and I think this song makes sense for her. While I agree that songs have to be radio friendly, there is something to be said for songs that become big just because they got a lot of publicity. Here I think Amerie’s song “Heard ’em all” (and career for that matter) are great examples of the importance of the work of the record label in helping songs become hits–great songs but no real push by A&R specifically and the record label more generally. I think Monica has brought soulful vocals back into R&B music (or at least reintroduced as a viable option for recording artists) and reminds me of the 90’s (a la SWV, Xscape, Karyn White). Often R&B artists are so concerned these days with cross-over appeal that soulful R&B ballads have become few and far in between. Using the sample from “Silly” by Denise Williams was a nice choice, and reminds me much of Angie Stone’s “I Wish I Didn’t Miss You” in that it draws on an old classic to create a new one. This will be a hit (not a number one necessarily) if Monica’s is out there singing the song at as many venues as you can, and if J Records really puts support behind the song. These days those two things go hand in hand in making a song a hit, especially a ballad. It may be worth while to attach the song to some soundtrack of some sort in addition to the album. Keep in mind the success of songs like “Ordinary People” by John Legend and “Love” by Keyshia Cole. This song definitely has potential, there is just little room for mistakes.

  43. G.LaSalle January 8, 2010

    I’m mad some of y’all are so pressed about Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna. LMAO! Yes I am a Bey stan, but I also love Monica. They are 2 different artist that makes different types of music. Sorry, this song is not a good cut for a single. She needs to come with something a little bit more radio friendly so people can connect with the song.

  44. Ben January 8, 2010

    I have to disagree with you Sam, I was actually hoping she would go with this one or “Betcha.” It is a nice smooth mid-tempo that shows elegant melody with supurb vocal, something that we don’t see that much on urban radio, it is all about a club hit with a stupid catch-phrase. I think there are too many people in the label that are losing touch of what is good music and are procrastinating. Makes me kinda wish I had their job because I truly believe I could do it better. Forget trying to crossover or trying to compete with Rihanna or Beyonce’s material, I don’t want to hear more of the same. Music is supposed to mean something, and this song MEANS SOMETHING. Also it really is put up or shut up time because it has been almost 4 years, and the longer you wait, the harder it will be to get back in the game because music evolves so fast these days, and we need somebody like Monica to hurry up and jump back in so she can help save R&B.

  45. ladia January 8, 2010

    R&B radio will get this to #1 alone. The Djs will go crazy over this record.

  46. hopeful January 8, 2010

    hopefully it has that slow song longevity that will creep up on the charts and stay consistent like timbaland mentioned. kinda like alicia key’s “like you’ll never see me again” different flavor of course but i could her this song being played at one in the morning on the radio station i listen to that plays these types of songs at that time. and they’ll play it for months lol.

  47. SexiBoi January 9, 2010

    Everything has always stood out to me, I think it will do fine as a single if they get it out and the video is right. Keep in mind if the rumors were correct that people said the same thing about Trust and Keyisha didn’t like the song and it ended up being one of her biggest hits off the last album and why……Monica owned that song and she sang it live everytime. Due to it’s success it people re-took a look at Monica and regained confidence in her as an artist. Trust made us crave. A song like Everything. If they were smart (maybe we should suggest this) they would have a remix that is club friendly and fast to meet those demands. I love Love All Over Me and don’t want her to release Once in a Lifetime as a first single, it’s been out forever now (even though I listen to it often) we want to be surprised and in the ever famous Missy’s words ….”Some New **it”. I’m a huge fan and she really needs the support of her fans, radio, and record company. I was the BET Hip-Hop Awards Show and Soul Train Awards and Industry Insiders all around me was discussing how they wanted a single, people are on the edge of their seats, watching and waiting and they want a bangin ballot that showcases the Mrs. Thang Monica that follows up on the success of Trust.

  48. Destiney January 9, 2010

    i LOVE THIS SONG I LOVE MONICA!!!!!!!!!

  49. J-Money January 9, 2010

    This is a HIT.
    Sam, where are her ablibs all over the place? Are we listening to the same song? The song is 2.5 minutes. . . showcasing depth, range, and soul. True music lovers can’t deny that this song is bringing it back to what many of us have been so “thirsty” for. So many of us complained that real music is dead, yet when someone makes it, you nit pick. She samples Denise Williams’ beat, but the lyrics are different than “Silly”. That alone makes this song old-school, yet contemporary.

    Sam, get your head out your ass and simply appreciate good music… vibe with it, and praise it for what it is instead of trying to get artists to conform to what is popular. You watch the show… She has a clear vision for what she wants with this album. . . She is delivering it. PERIOD!!!!

    TEAM MONICA 2010

    this is a great song…..i ♥ it ……Go Monica …

  53. MIA January 10, 2010

    I love this song & that would explain why I’m on this page listening to it. I just wanted to hear it once more before I went out & bought the CD. I loved Monica since day one. In the music industry or LIFE in general you can’t please everyone. Opinion’s are like assholes everyone has one. There will always be a positive & negative side to everything. Sometimes we just have to forgive the actions & forget the intent!! LUV YA MONICA…….

  54. IZZY January 10, 2010

    First of all MONICA is herself, BRITTNEY isn’t leading anything but a circus & lady GAGA should be leading the zoo. I didn’t know who lady Gaga was until I seen her on the awards show looking a MESS & that’s what drew my attention to her. Brittney Spears was always being talked about for something stupid, that’s how I found out who she was NOT from any song. Who the hell listen’s to either of them?? Where do they do that at? BEYONCE is hitting but I’m tired of her!! Monica this new CD is a good look for you & you have always had GREAT CD’s so for a person like you it’s ok to be M.I.A for several years & still come back STRONG and make it!! GO MONICA I love this song & a the rest of your songs on your CD…..

  57. Tay January 11, 2010

    Everything is the truth from the very first time I heard the clip of it. It is time for real singing so Monica is coming back a the right time, so tired of hearing about Beyonce and Lady Gaga. Its time for real vocalist to take the industry back. I’m a true Monica and music fan so as long as real music is coming out I will support it. Im not talking about all the single ladies, and divas.

  58. chasity phoniex laurent January 11, 2010

    AN AMAZING SONG. THUMBS UP

  60. FAME 1988 January 12, 2010

    I THINK THAT THIS IS A CLASSIC MONICA SONG…..IT WILL BE ONE TO REMEMBER!! IT’S REAL R&B WHAT THE MUSIC INDUSTRY HAS BEEN MISSING. WHAT WE HEAR NOW IT THE HIP-HOP/ R&b SOUND AND THE AUTO-TUNE ARTIST PRODUCE….REAL TALENT+ TRUE SINGING = REAL MUSIC!!!

  61. jay January 13, 2010

    i have heard the whole cd but this is a great first single so tell the label to stop tripping mon.

  62. Nelson Polite Jr. January 13, 2010

    I love this Monica song, she kills it from the opening note. Silly is such a good song and very hard to stand with as a singer. Monica ripped and I will buy her album on the first day it is released. I have not done that for on artist in a long time except for Jay Z and Diddy. So from a real dude. I wish Monica great success on this album.

  63. Kerawanna White January 16, 2010

I love Monica I always been a fan, but this is not her. Be yourself…that ‘s what sells…”being you, different”. Girl do you…The song “Still Standing ” is you 100%…thats your style…..leave that record label……too old school. Girl do you thing …that song should have been #6. You sound good but that not how you come back……Love ya

  69. cutie January 28, 2010

    Look great song only you know wat u feel. i like it .

    Monica is a very great soulful singer….We need to get back to (reak) singers like her. Her label seems to be jerking her around. I watched her TV show and she has put in a lot of time and hard work. I cannot wait for the next album, I have been a fan since Miss Thang! Keep your head up Monica -don’t let them tell you that your music is not great enough to drop or that’s not a single…Please release your music and your true fans will support you.

    I am a Fan of Monica but the song is nice but I thought maybe she could have came out with a more original song that is Denise song and the notes at the end should have been hit as well if you are going to sample the song silly of me.

    Monica i love this song; yet i feel you should come out with something stronger. as a single…….This song (Everything) is more like the appetizer……For instance still standing…(this song reflects strenght, determination,motivation and a wellingness for someone to go through and look forward to coming out of a situation..and not to settle ; but too keep on… It also show the strenght and growth you have..and thats what makes people relate and love your music

    I love Everything to me and so does my friends. I guess she should put some trash out just so she dont sing to good. Do just the minimum for a hit record. You all suck!

  89. Pareicia Seldon October 23, 2010

    Love this song as all of your music but you have one cut I love , hope its you and I don’t know the name or words in the song at this moment but it’s off the chain, be good and give us more good Monica love songs.
