Monica’s ‘Still Standing’ Certified Gold

Published: Thursday 22nd Apr 2010 by Sam

R&B star Monica will no doubt be celebrating today; the Grammy winner’s latest LP ‘Still Standing’ has been certified Gold by the RIAA  for sales of over 500,000 – just four weeks after it’s release.

Meanwhile, the album’s lead single ‘Everything to Me’ sits atop of the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Chart for an impressive 5th consecutive week.

——————————————————-

In an industry which sees the flavour of the month top the charts and then disappear, it’s awesome to see a true talent such as Monica holding strong. How refreshing it is to see great music and artists getting the recognition they deserve. Platinum is looking an almost certainty, with the album ‘still standing’ strong in the top ten. More power to Monica!

    SHE HAS NOT SOLD 500K. SHE’S ACTUALLY SOLD AROUND 350K, DECREASING IN SALES EACH WEEK. SHE WILL BE LUCKY TO SELL 600K. EVERYTHING TO ME IS #1 ON R&B BUT NOT EVEN TOP 40. WTF??? ANOTHER FLOP ERA FOR THE W**** WITH NO TALENT.

  2. Heir April 22, 2010

    Werkkkkkkkkkkkkkk Mo!

  3. “Dj Y2k Malone” April 22, 2010

    your source is from someone not even Monica twitter say it went gold which is false
    not trying to hate what so ever i love Monica but dont make up lies

  4. ADE April 22, 2010

    WOW @ STILL FLOPPING
    u know ur wrong cos this b**** can sing!

  5. Heir April 22, 2010

    @still flopping- shut the f*** up and give props where props are due. Im sure they would not have posted somethin up if it wasnt true dumb ass b****! And her album may not have sold 500 k yet, but if u were really into the industry and knew how it works, when they say something is certified, it does not mean that they have exactly sold that amount yet, but with the way sales are flowing, the album will indeed get there. Do ur research before u start talking senseless! Just like Rihanna latest effort, it has yet to actually sell a milli in the US, however, its certified platinum, becuz it will indeed sell a milli. I hate when u people be on here talkin s*** and dont know what the f*** yall be talking about. Dumb Asses! I work in the industry, so trust me, i kno whats goin on, and i will only say what i know and not wat i think sounds cute! On another note and away from the hating ass people in this world(who on earth could sit and listen to monica’s voice and call her talentless,please!) Congrats to Monica again!

  6. Positive Energy April 22, 2010

    Wow the hate…Why so much anger over something so trivial and does not pertain to you???

  7. Alex April 22, 2010

    YOU GO GIRL!

  8. Rob April 22, 2010

    It hasnt seen sales of over 500k but it might have shipped 500k copies hence the gold certification. Anywhoo in 4 weeks its sold the entire amount her last album did four years ago so congrats to Monica.

  9. Positive Energy April 22, 2010

    where’s my comment?????

  10. Simply Phillip Brown April 22, 2010

    I think it is safe to say, that by the end of this year, she will be platinum.

    When that second and third single kick in, and then the tour – Oh Ya- she will be platinum!

    flop

  21. Gareth April 22, 2010

    Congrats. Certifications are for shipping, not for sales but that makes it no less of an achievement considereing not only the sales of her own last album but sales of albums in general. It would be great to see her go platinum or atleast match the sales of ‘After The Storm’

  22. jonstrax April 22, 2010

    GOOD FOR HER, BUT IS GOING GOLD SOMETHING TO BE HAPPY ABOUT?

    STFU TO THE HATER AT THE TOP OF THE COMMENTS…

    MONICA DOIN HER THING. HER ALBUM IS ACTUALLY GREAT!

  36. Brighteyeshazel April 28, 2010

    To STILL FLOPPING you are clearly an idiot. She has been certified GOLD and counting…and u just mad MONICA is on TOP OF HER GAME so don’t hate appreciate. How could anyone hate on MONICA? She is the most realist and humble artist and actually have TALENT unlike a lot of these artist out today…She sold over 300,000 in two weeks of course she is GOLD dummy do the math well of course you can’t because you appear slow so nevermind lol

  37. GMoney May 5, 2010

    I am so proud of Mo. Even through all of the trials and tribulations, she still shines. It’s evident that jealousy can easily overtake people’s minds and that the devil tries to manifest a sense of stress over those who are successful by putting people like @Still Flopping on the comment board. That’s ridiculous. Dont’ hate…congratulate. If only the world was full of positive energy…keep it up Mo!
