Hot Shot: Monica Unmasks ‘Without You’ Cover

Published: Saturday 21st Apr 2012 by Sam

With Monica‘s latest LP ‘New Life’ poised to hold steady in the top 20, the singer soldiers on with the set’s 4th single ‘Without You’, the cover for which she unveiled today. Check it out above.

Randomness: Here’s hoping ‘Daddy’s Good Girl’ is afforded the single treatment before the album’s campaign wraps.

    Looks like a Mary J Blige cover

  5. money April 21, 2012

    Damn this is the 4th single? What were the other two that I must’ve missed?

  7. Lyo April 21, 2012

    I really like her album. I hope she´ll have another hit on her hand, for R&B sake…

    I think this is the best song on the album hands down, vocally on point

    Why was that song with Brandy even realeased? it was S***! & Daddy’s Good Girl SHOULD NOT be a single Sam shut your gay ass up. “Take a Chance” or “In 3d” should be singles…

    I made a lyric video for this song.

    Follow me on Twitter and check out the video please! #TeamMonica

    I love Monica, but this is not my fave single choice, though the cover is lovely, so maybe it will work.

  12. -_- April 21, 2012

    I’m sorry but I’m so disappointed with this album, it’s a complete snoozefest. And that duet with Brandy?…Horrific. This almost makes Alicia Keys’ TEOF look like a dance party in Atlanta.

    Chile Preach! This is just boring as all the f**** Monica! I don’t think she cares though.

    This is a great R&B/Soul album! Her single choices haven’t been the best tho. She should have lead the album with Without You in November, and she should be releasing Take A Chance now and Daddy’s Good Girl in the summer since it has a summer vibe to it.

  15. Jer April 21, 2012

    I am not here for this fake over the top stiff glamour s***. Wheres the grit? Wheres the soul?

  16. CAREERENDER April 21, 2012

    Flop b****! Even Kelly Rowland outsold her 1st week sales

  17. Jasmine April 21, 2012

    I know a lot of people like Without You but it does not sound like single material and to me it is just an album track. I agree with Sam, Daddy’s Good Girl would be a better choice as a single…I don’t think that song is a great single but judging from all of the songs it would be the next best move. Other than that song the only other song I could see is Time To Move On. The album does not have a lot of songs that are single worthy. Hence, the low sales.

  18. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) April 21, 2012

    I HOPE it is a success for her! First of all, because it’s an amazing song and it deserves it and secondly because she sure needs it! 😳 I checked out her album the moment TGJ posted ‘Without You’ and if her whole album was as strong, I would actually buy it. But this song is the only stand-out.

  19. Lax April 21, 2012

    Talented and Beautifyl!!

  20. Girrrl April 21, 2012

    That cover looks like a senior prom picture. Why do these artists think R&B equal boring slow jams.

  21. Twhist April 21, 2012

    Love it! Great choice. Hopefully I’ll be walking down the aisle in September to “Without You”

  22. @he_flexxin on Twitter April 21, 2012

    @Jer Time to Move on has soul & grit!
    @Careerender As a fan of Beyonce and Monica i see why Beyonce is hated as an artist even though she’s Top Notch… It’s because of stupid stans like you that hate on other artist!

  23. antertain April 21, 2012

    I love me some R&B and Monica gave me quality R&B music and i’ll support the single.
    Song is kind of short to me but i know Live she’ll blow it out.

    Can the snoozfest dry face fools who keep on saying the album bores them stop boring us with the dusty old news comments.

    Why you in the Monica post if you soo bored?


    Tip of the moment: Try comment on something you like as it might uplift your spirits.

  24. lo April 21, 2012

  25. COOKIE – DIVAS – RIHANNA, TONI B. April 21, 2012

    I love the realness of the single cover. This song stays on repeat, love it!

  26. Teacher April 21, 2012

    I LOVE this song! I really ddnt like Daddy’s Good Girl….

    Monica’s lost her commercial/cross over appeal. Used to be a time when everything she came out with had “hit” written all over it, but something has been off with her for a while now. “Without You” is just okay, but not single material.

  29. ENOUGH ONIKA April 22, 2012

    I love Monica, she’s one of the rare birds these days who can sing without stacks os auto tune or gimmicks. But this album just…’s boring. The artwork, the songs, everything about this album…..Monica can do better. Give us that edge you use to give, hell fake it if you have to. I just don’t want to see yet another true talent get swallowed up by characters like Onika.

  30. So Fresh April 22, 2012

    “Without You” is GREAT!!! Lovin “Catch Me” right now too!!! Great soulful So Gone flavor to it but even better.

    I thought the album was a snoozer at first too but it grows on u pretty quick n learn to like songs for what they r minus 2 maybe I think r just ok or skip. But Monica is so real w/ her vocals that I listen to her anyway!!! Passion is a must n she has it!

  31. NIKKO April 22, 2012

    Must have album of 2012! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!
