New Song: Monica – ‘Everything To Me’ (Single / Extended Version)

Published: Wednesday 27th Jan 2010 by Sam
Monica Everything

As previously reported, the first single to be lifted from Monica‘s forthcoming ‘Still Standing’ LP is ‘Everything To Me’.

A shorter edit of the song, which is the most added at Mainstream and AC radio this week, had been floating around for a few weeks. However, the director of  single’s video reportedly required a longer track, hence a bridge and a few other tweaks have been added. After initially not being too big on the song, it’s starting to grow on me. Take a listen below:

    I love Monica, she made one of my favorite songs of ALL time. (Angel of Mine) but what is this? this song is NOT single material.

    I know she can come harder than that.

    Love All Over Me >>>>>>>>>

    If she wanted a “ballad” that would have been it. She told them record label folks that on the show and they didn’t listen..

    One in a lifetime was also good , but a little too “Samey” if you know what I mean.. Monica’s vocals always s***, but her music needs to POP on radio.

  3. no tea, no shade January 27, 2010

    and by POP, I don’t mean pop music.. lol.. she’s trying to keep it a little urban but the “Everything to me” is a little too throwback.. the sample makes it sound like something she would have recorded a few eras ago

  4. Jace January 27, 2010

    This is a GREAT song…A song that music lovers will be able to listen to 10 yrs from now..Great Work MONiCA..I ‘m so excited about this album!!!!! Keep the classic, beautiful music coming, and leave those pop, trendy, “single material” songs to the others….

  5. Snippet January 27, 2010

    Never been a fan but this song is going to do very well, nice voice along with that old school beat finally some real r n b I guess ill be checkin for her album.

  6. INFO January 27, 2010

    Naw this is what I’m talkin bout. Monica got them Killa vocals+ a very nice mellow beat= Love. So far i’m likin wat i’m hearin from these lil samples that keep leakin. Im gone pick up that album when it comes out. SUPPORT REAL R&B LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!

  7. January 27, 2010

    i like that they lengthened the song. i don’t think every song should be like 5 minutes long or anything, but this was barely 2:30, so it needed the bridge/ad libs.

    i hope this is successful. i love the throwback-ness of it and she obliterates the song with her vocal.

    team monica.

    HANDS DOWN MONICA HAS A HIT ON HER HANDS! FIRST OF ALL THE VOCALS ARE SICK! I AM SO GLAD SHE ADDED MORE TO THE SONG. THIS SONG WILL BE IN HEAVY ROTATION. SHE DOES NOT NEED NO POP SONG…WHOEVER SAID THAT IS AN IDIOT. WE NEED THIS RAW R&B VOCALIST. EVERYTHING DOES NOT NEED TO BE SHAKE YA @SS. HAVE SOME CLASS! GO MONICA WE GOT YOUR BACK GIRL!

    *TEAM MONICA*

  9. TRUTH January 27, 2010

    I HEAR THIS ON URBAN AC STATIONS ALL THE TIME. V103 ATLANTA, HER HOMIE STATION PLAYS THIS SEVERAL TIMES A DAY… NOT #1 MATERIAL BUT DOING WELL ON BB RNB CHARTS.

  10. Renae January 27, 2010

    Can’t hear the song but I love Monica, always support and buy her music.

  11. jwhit214 January 27, 2010

    So glad ur finally on board Sam! I usually agree with ur reviews….but when u werent feeling this, I asked myself, IS HE ON CRACK? LOL! This is a beautiful love song. Monica’s vocals have never been better and I love how they cleaned it up a little bit. I see this being a huge R&B record for her….JUST WHAT SHE NEEDS! Her fanbase is R&B…not pop….It would be great if the record crossed over, but if it doesnt, I still think she will do fine. Its more than obvious Monica doesnt want to be commercialized anyway….Besides look at Maxwell….I cant wait for this damn album! March 30th cant come fast enough

  12. stan January 27, 2010

    great decision to lengthen the song.

  13. TJ January 27, 2010

    WOW… all I can say is wow… Monica is back and better than ever. REAL R&B music. I agree with some of the previous postings… I’m on TEAM MONICA 2010. Her fanbase is R&B listeners… and Yes.. Look at Maxwell… He is highly successful and he is not a crossover artist. So, why can’t she just stay in the lane that she caters to? IF she does crossover great, but if not… so what?

    Her fanbase will be happy… She will be a success nonetheless. GO MONICA!!!!

    MONICA 2010

    CAN’T WAIT FOR THE ALBUM, and the single will do GREAT!!!

  14. MellyMel January 27, 2010

    This is SANGING! Nothing out right now can vocally touch this song period. We haven’t heard vocals like this in a long time…R&B music is dying…pop & auto tune is killing real music..Monica just…can’t even speak. Damn, Damn.

  15. Prince January 27, 2010

    Yess Monica im lovin the extended version!! I will definitely be buying your album!

  16. Abcd January 27, 2010

    She kilt that bridge! That made the song 10x hotter.

  17. BrandynMonicaStan January 27, 2010

    Love it !! That’s my girl all day !!!!! Go MO !!!!!!!!

  18. MushyLove_1992 January 27, 2010

    I can dig this…Love ya Monica!

  19. G.LaSalle January 27, 2010

    I love the song but its not single material, especially if she wants a hit.

  20. cheryl January 27, 2010

    SANG MONICA DARN IT YOU BETTER SANG THAT SONG GIRL…I LOVES ME SOME MONICA AND WILL BE BUYING THREE COPIES..1 HOUSE, 1 CAR AND A BACKUP WHEN 1 GETS MISSING! THIS IS WHAT IM F….. TALKING ABOUT MONICA…MMM HMM YOU DOING IT RIGHT MAMA!

  21. TJ January 27, 2010

    I just don’t understand what people are talking about when they say this song is not “single material”… Can someone PLEASE explain this to me? Monica is an R&B artist… Check her record. Check to see what all of her previous hits were… She caters to an R&B audience. SHE IS NOT A POP ACT BY NO MEANS!!!!!! If her songs cross over then great, that is a benefit, but she is not going for gimmicks, or to do something that is not genuine to her and her fans. This song is REAL R&B, and she is SAAANGING. This song got the most adds to Mainstream and Adult Contemporary radio… This is just the beginning. The reaction and Buzz around this song is Massive. Her label is even excited about the reaction and the decision to go with “Everything” as the single. So, what are people talking about? You can’t please everyone!!!!

    Team Monica 2010!!!!

    This song is Amazing and a Hit! Her fans will see to it, and I will be buying 3 copies of her album like a previous posting… One for the car, one for the house, and one for work… I may even buy one for a gift for a colleague. lol

  22. Twhist January 27, 2010

    Song was great before the bridge was added, but i love the song and i’m glad after listening to the extended version is makes me like the song that much more. As far as everyone saying she needs something pop…kick rocks. I agree with the comment about Maxwell…he was off the scene for almost 10 years and he came back with NOT A POP RECORD OR ALBUM, but a GREAT CLASSIC R&B album and Monica will do just that! So glad Mo’s not about trends!!!!!!

  23. J-Money January 27, 2010

    Vocal PowerHouse!!!!!
    Monica is R&B at its best!
    GREAT SONG….
    Perfect Single regardless to the naysayers!

    I cosign… Monica 2010

  24. DJ January 27, 2010

    I’ve been in love with this song since it first leaked over the summer….and this bridge has made it even better. What I don’t understand is why there is such hate towards this song not being “single” material. This is classic/timeless music. I get sick of hearing gimmicky sh** on the radio all the time. People complain about wanting to hear real music, yet when REAL music comes out, we don’t support it. Monica is doing her thing, and this has SERIOUS potential to cross over, (especially since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner…people will just want to hear a great love song) GO MONICA!!, I SUPPORT YOU 100%!!

  25. Gemita January 27, 2010

  31. Tyboogie January 29, 2010

    I like this song, maybe because she sampled the Deniece Williams classic “Silly”. It has a great feel to it.

  32. Tyboogie January 29, 2010

    She is singing her b*** off on this song. I like it.

  33. Tracy Turner January 30, 2010

    What can I say but I’m a number one Monica fan. Monica is so humble and real. She reminds me so so so much of myself. Luv you Mo keep making hits.

  38. shavanna23 February 11, 2010

    wow…cant believe they changed the original to this…it was a classic before the changes

  39. Stephanie February 15, 2010

    Monica I first want to say God Bless you, now let me begin for those who feel its too throwback u don’t really love music you love garbage. This is real R&! Not that studio voice mess we’ve been hearing from Rehanna and the rest of the wanna be artist vocalists…MUSIC is the soul like Fantasia Whitney Mary J, Patti LabellemThose are singers ..to where if live and the mike goes out. We will still get the real deal not all the extra stuff that is added on to the microphones to highlight them vocals that are not really there…so MONICA keep it up and Share what god has given you to share with MMthe real Vocalmmm Your everything to your Fans

  40. mykelle smith February 17, 2010

    monica i love all of ur music and everything that u do i love it and im ur biggest fan too keep up the good work and stay strong and postive and keep thinking postive too

  41. Anita February 19, 2010

    I loved this song from the first moment that I heard it. I am so glad that Monica is coming out with this new album. She is incredible. Much love to her. 🙂

  42. KT February 27, 2010

    This is one of the best R&B songs I’ve heard in a long time. Always was a fan of Monica’s she fell off a lil bit not being true to herself and listening to other ppl, but i must say I haven’t been excited about a female artist album coming out in a while. I think beyonce has a lovely voice but none of her singles(since dangerlously in love album) has spoken to me very bubble gummy. Monica girl YOU DiD DAT girl. Team Monica thank you for bringing back Real R&B we needed that.

  43. vern gotti March 19, 2010

    Monica is revealing her mature side with this powerful ballad her voice shows the range in her vocals she has outdone her self with this creative sample of denise williams silly! Monica to me sings her version with more soul and intensity than Denise did! Not to take anything away from the great Denise Williams it is just my humble opinion!! Welcome back Monica r&b has truly missed you.
