Monica Readies New Single With Jamie Foxx

Published: Wednesday 7th Apr 2010 by Sam

R&B star Monica is set to follow-up her Urban smash ‘Everything To Me’ with new single ‘Here I Am’. Confirming the news just moments ago on Twitter, the Grammy winner also revealed that she and label-mate Jamie Foxx have put an interesting new twist on the song, alluding to a re-worked / collaboration serving as the single version.

To say I’m ecstatic would an understatement! From the standpoint of yours truly, ‘Here I Am’ is not only Monica’s best offering on her ‘Still Standing’ LP, it’s one of her best songs period. Besides the stunning vocals and production (courtesy of Polow Da Don), the purely R&B  track is lyrically on another level; something which lends itself to some great video concepts.

With ‘Still Standing’ selling another 80,000 copies in its 2nd week, it’s fair to say that Monica is doing it BIG all over again. It honestly is great to see R&B making a comeback, and Monica serving as the face of it’s revival. Awesome.

For those who haven’t heard ‘Heard I Am’, check it out below…

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

    I sense my plan is working as I wanted this as single number 2, then Love All Over Me as 3rd single.

    She will kill this LIVE as well.

    Be very interesting to hear what Jamie brings to the table.

    Her performance on Leno is SURE to garner even more interest in her as well.

    Thanks to all the peeps reppin on Team Monica cus she a sanger and deserves to show that to the Worldwide Audience.

    Still Standing!!!

    If I’m honest, I was not too impressed with the album at first, but it is definitely a grower and one of the best rnb albums in some time. Here I am is a great track. TBH, its one of many great rnb tracks off the album and if Monica wants to release any pure rnb tracks, then she is spoilt for choice. All over me is a great song, as is Stay or Go (currently my fav).

  7. me April 7, 2010

    I hope she aint gonna do another rerelease cause i dont think it fair for the people that brought the first copy and then feel coned out.

    I have to say that alot of the times i HATE reworked singles. Its just sometimes i feel like they are cheating people who bought the album off a newley probably better reworked song. Artists do it all the time and its annoying especially if you took time out to support them and buy the album.

    With that being said I love Monica and wish her the best. Song sounds great. She’s really bringing back real RnB. Taking me back to the 90s. I’m sure Jamie will make the song even hotter.

  9. Alex April 7, 2010

    YESSSS! Perfect choice 😀 Mirror should be the 3rd single just in time for the summer.

  10. David Washington April 7, 2010

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS, MONICA BETTA WORK!! She will continue to garner success with these right single choices. People will kill for this as a single!

  11. truthis April 7, 2010

    brand will get her turn..but right now ITS ALL ABOUT MONICA,MONICA,MONICA…she came back shining and i love it her voice and her album is ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING….good job monica cant wait to hear what mo and jamie did to Here I Am i love that song……r&b at its finest!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Hboss April 7, 2010

    I think “One In a Lifetime” should be the next single. Here I Am should be the third or fouth single.

  13. Puppy Love April 7, 2010

    YES MONICA!!! U BETTER WERK B****!!!!!!

  14. arfa April 7, 2010

    I love this song! one in life time, stay or go and love all over me should become singles. Lets just hope we get some up tempo on the re release.

  15. joshua April 7, 2010

  16. arfa April 7, 2010

    COMMENTS WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED.

  18. NICKY April 7, 2010

    AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

    THIS WAS MY FAVE SONG FROM THE ALBUM
    HERE I AM IS AMAZING!!!!!!

    THE REWORKED VERSION BETTER BE FIRE OR I WONT BE TOO HAPPY

    HER NEXT SINGLE SHOULD BE “SUPERMAN” OR “IF YOU WERE MY MAN”

  19. MR. STILL STANDING April 7, 2010

    Well I am happy with this decision. Now “Love All Over Me” needs to be the next single.

  20. Aunt Jackie April 7, 2010

    Great song! And great choice for a new single.

  21. Lovi April 7, 2010

    @ ARFA ROOOTHF LMFAO @ “ok F*** Brandy!” aint it funny how the tables turned.

  22. Khalil April 7, 2010

    Just as my day was down, this news just made me smile! Monica is killing this go round! I am so proud of her. ‘Here I Am” is one of my favorite tracks. I hope Jamie does not mess it up with no damn auto tune overkill either! lol YESSSSS *TEAM MONICA* this is our time!

  23. Ben April 7, 2010

    I hate it when music artists change a single’s format that is not on the album, forcing us to download the alternative version. On another note, I was hoping for “If You Were My Man,” because it is a nice uptempo, and it gives a way to bring Missy back into the spotlight..

  24. Kyle April 7, 2010

    I am SO HAPPY for Monica. She deserves it 100%. One thing that may disappoint people though it that the re-worked version of “Here I Am” wasn’t included on the album. Then again they can just buy it on Itunes for .99 cents. Jamie Foxx and Monica would make a good colloboration too. Can’t wait to hear it. It’s my favorite song on the album.

  25. nerd April 7, 2010

    not a big fan of Jamie of foxx, however, it will be interesting to see what he will bring. I would have prefer love all over me or betcha (if you were my man).

  26. Blasian April 7, 2010

    I love this song!

  27. BRANDY N MONICA STAN April 7, 2010

    I think the next single choice should have been love all over me but I like here I am as well.
    Let’s get it Mo !!!

  28. Abcd April 7, 2010

    Yesss! My fav song off the album! MONICA & JAMIE FOXX WILL DEFINATELY BE PERFORMING THIS AT THE BET AWARDS IN JUNE!

  29. TheOne April 7, 2010

    This cd was kinda slow growing on me, just like Mariah Carey’s memoirs of an imperfect angle. Both are now front runners in my album choices!!!!! Great job Monica

  30. Kyle April 7, 2010

    @ TheOne: All Monica’s albums usually are slow growers for me but something about this album just really stuck after the first listen. I seriously love this album!! Best Monica album IMO.

  31. ladylove April 7, 2010

    dont get me wrong i like this song but its probably my least fav off the cd and jamie foxx will probably just ruin it. i love monica tho and i will always support her.

  32. CrackisWack April 7, 2010

    WOW… I love this song! Can’t wait to hear the version with Jamie. It seems like this will be another big hit for Monica.

  33. Jayla April 7, 2010

    I LOVE THE ALBUM! BUT I AM SO NOT A FAN OF THIS SONG… ITS OK… BUT I GUARANTEE IT WONT BLOW YOU AWAY… THERE ARE BETTER CHOICES, LIKE “LOVE ALL OVER ME” AND “STAY OR GO”…. “IF YOU WERE MY MAN” IS THE WORSTTT SONG ON THE CD LOL… F*** UPTEMPO ITS NOT THAT SERIOUS THAT SONG IS PATHETIC.!!!!!

  34. Cory April 7, 2010

    I AGREE WITH PEOPLE SAYING SHE DOESN’T REALLY NEED UPTEMPOS ON HER ALBUM ITS NICE TO HAVE SOME BUT ITS NOT A NECESSITY WHEN IT COMES TO MONICA. SHE’S NOT A DANCER ALTHOUGH SOME OF HER UPTEMPOS HAVE BEEN NICE LIKE SET IT OFF AND ALL EYES ON ME BUT MONICA IS A GROWN WOMAN WHO SINGS MIND U SINGS R&B SHE’S A SINGER SHE SINGS. OMG

  35. 33 April 7, 2010

    “Here I am” is theperfect spring into summer jam. Go get yours MO. Love ya. I was hoping for “one in a lifetime” or “stay or go” to be the next single. I am certainly in suspense to see the “Here I am” video and the great response people will get from it.

  36. nupecynic April 9, 2010

    When did Monica become so f****** ghetto?
