    The ‘Sideline Ho’ performer…I mean REALLY?

    Out of all the songs…Angel of Mine, The First Night, So Gone, Knock Knock, Everything to Me, A Dozen Roses, Love All Over Me (and more)…you had to pick the one with the most ratchet titles…

    Monica’s music has become so stale, another Missy sample huh. She doesnt take risks musically at all. I don’t sense much creativity either. That short hair and blonde color makes her appear much older than she is. Shes only 30 if I’m not mistaken. Long black hair suits her best. But I hope she gets it together because nobody wants to support a boring artist…she can easily be forgotten if she continues on this boring artistry path.

    Why is everyone talking about ‘evolving’, ‘boring’ etc.? Monica is staying true to her genre, that’s what you are calling boring. How should she show creativity? Creating dance-pop songs like everyone else huh? Tell me, what about singers like Brandy, Tamia, Faith Evans, Keyshia Cole, Kelly Price, Deborah Cox? They’ve all been R&B over the years. And if you don’t like it, no one is forcing you to listen to R&B.

    Yes, Monica can sing very well…but she doesn’t utilize all colors of her voice. She needs to stop trying to sing so HEAVY all the time. She needs to tone it down a bit and calculate her notes because sometimes they just sound bad. Listen to Down 4 Whatever for a perfect vocal delivery from Monica. Too bad she doesn’t use her voice that way anymore.

    Thank you. When I read the “‘boring” comments, I was like, What the hell? Monica is an amazing singer and has showed growth through out her career, IMO. Just because she’s staying true to who she is doesn’t make her “boring” at all. It means she’s real.

    Anyways, I can’t wait for this video and album. “Still Standing” is still in heavy rotation :)

Monicas music is far from boring! ::sighs;: I feel so bad for u brainwashed people who believe that if it ain’t pop it ain’t growth or ain’t interesting.. Child please!! STILL STANDING ALBUM >>>>>>>> any R&B album that has dropped in the last 4 years! Monica is legendary! you dont have to dance around with multiple Lacefronts, clothe-less, and walk around with a portable auto-tune kit to be great (see:Rihanna,Gaga, and even beyonce! I love Monica and Brandy! The both can sang.. But Brandys last albums were worst than those Los Angeles Beauty Supply discounted Lacefronts that she keep buying! I’m OUT

    Meh…while some ladies have it and can come back after a minute and snatch a wig I don’t think Monica has that. She’s tried to do ‘comeback’ singles and albums for years now and it’s never done too well. Also her last album was just boring, I love that girl off her first album when she was a real voice in R n B and had those amazing songs but eh…remains to be seen if she and Brandi can come back and do the damn thing. (Singers/rappers from the early 90’s have had real trouble transitioning)

    Wish her the best though, she seems like a smart strong lady, she just needs to be smart and really appeal to a new audience.

    w/ this record and records like Beyonce’s Party and Teairra Mari’s That’s All Me..it’s good to see hiphop/RNB come back together.. for so long it has electrodance/pop, rnb/pop, hiphop/rock and hiphop/pop..we need hiphop/rnb, rnb, and soul music to really take it’s place back..so sick of the legacy of music being messed over. I remember how Badboy records, Mary J and Swv did it back in the days..say what you want but Diddy was the reason for that. with Total and records like Swv “Someone” .

    Nobody’s asking her to switch her genre up, but Missy sample after Missy sample, the Chris Robinson director that she’s used for her last 3 videos, the same producers she used for Still Standing are basically the same ones she is using for the new album…that’s what people mean by boring and such. She needs to switch things up. She just seems not to have a real passion for what she does, it seems like it’s just a job that supports her lifestyle…I’m sure that’s not the case but that is what can be easily perceived from the outside looking in.

    @King David Actually boo Brandy only sold more albums then Mo,because she had a big fan base from doing Moesha which had millions of viewers which was more promo! But talking about impact on RnB Mo slays Bran period! Check the records boo boo Monica has had more number #1’s(billboard) then bran and overall top t0 hits also! She also has more hot 100 #1’s then bran also(including TBIM) Last year billboard name Monica the #24th RnB artist of the last 25yrs! Where was bran?? Num 48!…Riaa has awarded Monica with more gold and platinum singles then Bran also! Albums sells are only part of what shows succes(i.e.susan boyle) so what point did u prove?!? #Currentrelevanceisallthatmattersatthispoint..Brandy#DEAD

Where was Mo? Was she getting Cover Girl contracts, her own doll, big screen films, Candies endorsements ummm negative! Brandy was more popular because she was and always will be more appealing to mainstream! Umm did Mo get offered 90210 or Drop Dead Diva ? ?? Exactly!!! Have several seats!

    As far as for Monica not taking risk or switching it up a bit, she did with Makings of Me and we all know the outcome. Being a traditional R&B singer has been Monica’s best gift and her worst curse. While Brandy and her producers and writers had the benefit of making music that went along with her Moesha character, Monica did’nt. Monica was’nt really a dance either so there was’nt many uptempo records. Monica is a ballad singer who knew her performance limitation. Also Monica has been hinting that after this and a Christmas album she going to do Gospel.

    How many flop albums has Monica had? 1, Brandy? 3

    Early on, Brandy may have sold more albums, but truthfully that DOES NOT MATTER… MONICA has retained her fan base. HAS BRANDY? NO, because otherwise she wouldn’t have had flop albums and been dropped from her labels.

    Monica is always going to put out music that her REAL R&B Fans will enjoy…If you dont like it.. Kick Rock!!!

    Why can’t we let them both be great. Monica is awesome as well as Brocka, plus they are good friends. I mean really? They both have beautiful distinctive voices and knows what works for them. Monica is still here 15 years doing her thing and I’m rooting for Brandy’s comeback too. Human was a solid effort with great vocal display, but it was underrated.

    I honestly like this song but I don’t think the youngsters of this generation will be interested in it. It has a old school monica vibe to it. R&b is pretty much dead. I don’t see how monica making a song like this is gonna help it much. It will probably do well on urban radio. Don’t see it breaking any other records tho. @Teairra she looks beautiful. Stop hatin and have a seat.

    Based on my previous post, I didnt want to come off harsh on Brandy. I just wanted to state a fact to those Brandy Stands who HATE on Monica every chance they get and feel the need to NEEDLESSLY compare them. They BOTH are VERY SUCCESSFUL….

    Truth be told i’m HOPING Brandy has a comeback..I genuinely like her. But the constant complaints about Monica being boring, etc are just b*******. Monica is an R&B singer. She is not pop, dance, nothing…

    Over 15 years in the music industry she HAS TO BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT… Again, 1 unsuccessful album, did not break her Career…

    She’s happy….Making R&B…. Married (to a multi millionaire)….. has beautiful children…. You can’t find fault in that. She’s doing the damn thang…

    I’m looking forward to New Life, and I’m looking forward to Brandy’s new venture. I’m hoping it follows the vein of Full Moon…

    Do you think Arista would have let Whitney out of her contract at the height of her career? HELL NO… Do you think Sony/Colombia would let Beyonce out of her contract? NO…

    A person can say they left all they want, but the albums were commercial failures in their eyes and she was “LET” out of the contracts… DROPPED..

    You can splice it any way you want, but thats the truth of the matter. Im happy she’s on RCA now and I hope for a great album, but lets be serious, and see reality for what it is, not what you want it to be.

    The ‘Sideline Ho’ performer…I mean REALLY?

    Out of all the songs…Angel of Mine, The First Night, So Gone, Knock Knock, Everything to Me, A Dozen Roses, Love All Over Me (and more)…you had to pick the one with the most ratchet titles…

    the writing here gets worse and worse I swear.

    what the hell does brandy getting drop from her record company got to do with her being a better singer than monica?

    so let me get this straight, in order for u to be more talented u have to sell millions and not get drop from ur record label?

    that logic doesnt make any damn sense..

    so ur telling me all these people whos album are a hit, or have 10 number 1 singles is more talented?

    I hate when people do that b*******, bring up numbers, like the numbers suppose to make them more talented than others..

    janet jackson got dropped by her label, so that means rihanna is a better singer and entertainer than her, since rihanna is still with a label?

    mariah carey got dropped from her label before,

    my point is bringing up the fact that brandy got dropped from her label is not relevant…it doesnt prove that monica is a better singer or entertainer..

    No what it does is it bears facts. People always bring up the fact that Brandy sold more albums early in her career to justify the notion that she is better than Monica. I simply state facts.

    I like Monica better than Brandy, but I don’t say she is a better singer than Brandy.

    People say Monica is boring, but I say well she must not be boring to a large enough demographic because She’s successful still here after over 15 years

    People say Monica is not versatile, I say she’s just a great R&B artist who is doing her thang…

    BRANDY is the s***.. I love her, but I do like Monica more.

    Again, I brought up her being dropped to silence the Haters. They KEEP throwing numbers out. But at the end of the day, Monica is an ACCOMPLISHED artist and no matter the amount of hate, it won’t take away from her accomplishments.
    Who sings better is relative… People will not always agree. Its ZERO NEED TO TRY AND tear Monica down, just because you like Brandy more.

    People GET THE f*** OVER IT!!! Monica is here to stay.. MONICA is SUCCESSFUL… If you don’t like her, WHY ARE YOU POSTING ON A THREAD ABOUT HER? #LAME!

    The “Sideline Ho” Singer? Why the shade on Mo? That song was never a single was just a good album track on her album in 2006. 5 years later that comment is only thrown to throw shade at her for no reason.

    Monica and Brandy are friends. Why put them up against each other? Both of these women are talented and unique in their own right. Doesn’t matter who you like the most, BOTH women are going strong after all these years, still making timeless music. I can’t wait for their albums…

    theres a difference between stating ur own opinion and just talking s*** for no reason…

    when i see people say well my favs is better than ur favs because my fav sold more albums, or my favs has more number 1 hits..thats b******* to me

    selling more albums, or having the most number 1 hits doesnt mean ur more talented than somebody else whos flopping on the charts..

    the same goes for, well my favs never got drop from her label, so shes more talented than ur favs..

    I’m excited for what it happening in Monica’s career. Monica is staying true to HER artistry. She sings, she doesn’t rely on fads… and she never really has when you take a look at her catalog.

    It is true, overall Brandy was more commercially successful than Monica. Take into mind that in recent years Monica has had the upper hand when your judging between the two…. But that does’nt really matter. I think people get lost in numbers, considering the condition of the music industry, if you are allowed to stay true to yourself and create music other than what is being played on POP radio, I say go for it!

    Some people don’t have a choice, their forced to sing to what is hot at the moment. Monica is blessed and I know that she is going to continue to be successful as well as Beyonce. Its ok to have opinion, but don’t forget who we are talking about. Monica & Brandy really don’t have anything to prove. They’ve had their time, hopefully they are able to continue to progress, but I’m happy with what they have given. If only Aaliyah was here…..

    @King David Actually boo Brandy only sold more albums then Mo,because she had a big fan base from doing Moesha which had millions of viewers which was more promo! But talking about impact on RnB Mo slays Bran period! Check the records boo boo Monica has had more number #1’s(billboard) then bran and overall top t0 hits also! She also has more hot 100 #1’s then bran also(including TBIM) Last year billboard name Monica the #24th RnB artist of the last 25yrs! Where was bran?? Num 48!…Riaa has awarded Monica with more gold and platinum singles then Bran also! Albums sells are only part of what shows succes(i.e.susan boyle) so what point did u prove?!? #Currentrelevanceisallthatmattersatthispoint..Brandy#DEAD

    Everything to Me wasn’t not growth?
    Mirror wasn’t growth?
    Believing in me wasn’t growth?
    Love All Over Me wasn’t growth?

    YOU DON’T NEED TO DO POP TO BE CLASSED as growth artist.

    She reppiing R&B/Hip-Hop the way it should.
    Bet Kelly Rowland & Keyshia Cole & Human Brandy + CiCi & co would love to have those sales. Especially as a PURE R&B artist.

    It seems as if people (haters) come here to vent on their issues when they don’t have a place to write something on the artist they love because they are not relevant at the time. Instead of us bashing each other and the artist, who don’t we support them and help them reach to the levels and positions they need to be in the music industry. Monica and Brandy, both I love and I’m sure they have love for each other too. We are so consumed by Beyonce and Rihanna and Lady Gaga that we forgot who has been around from way back when. why don’t we help them get their album sales up by supporting each of them. If we love R& B, give them a chance. It’s only the fans fighting not the artist and it’s so poor we have to get so negative to make one over the other look good.

    Now secondly, why are Brandy & Beyonce being brought up in the post this is not about them. Beyonce is Pop not R&B, & just becuz Brandy and Mo were in the same era does not mean you can compare the 2 they are both great in their own right. SO PLEASE LET IT GO!!!!
