Hot Shots: Monica Signs ‘Code Red’ CDs In Atlanta

moica-that-grape-juice-2015-1910101019101010

Monica isn’t shaken by news that her new LP ‘Code Red’ is to welcome less than stellar sales this week.

Keen to thank fans for their support of the project the entertainer launched to offer them signed CDs after wrapping her national tour.

Snaps below…

The entertainer recently took to Instagram to apologise to fans who complained that they hadn’t been unable to pick up physical copies of the LP.

Unfortunately, as fans assumed this was the case because the LPs had sold out in some stores, it’s likely the project’s physical CDs were understocked by her record label so its supply didn’t exceed its demand.

Click here to find out how many units its set to move in its opening week.

        Don’t you two stan for Brandy, of course. You Brandy fans stay trying to shade Monica, yet you all are neglecting your fav’s Subway “Coming to an underground near you” tours. Spend less time worrying about Monica, and more time worrying about your UGLY ass, wide eyed, flat faced, can’t keep a man, lying ass, murdering, weak head game, empty stadium, weak vocal ass, low budget bet show, and did I say ugly “Worth mentioning again fav.

        Listen to you sounded like a miserable fool. Monica has always been in Brandy shadow. With her fake gangsta nasty hoodrat attitude. Tryna act like she so classy and knowledgeable about life. H** sit your clown ass down. CAN ANYONE ELSE ATTEST TO HER NASTY SELF RIGHTEOUS ATTITUTE? She’s a know it all. But what she and you should know is that I’ll take a Brandy flop over a Monica flop Any day! CAN I GET A WITNESS?

        As for you Naomi Cambell Stan:

        LOL B**** STFU, you sound pressed as hell, hence as to why you’re in a Monica post talking about Brandy’s ugly ass. Worry less about Monica, and more about your cross eyed fav. Remember, there’s an that empty stadium and a Subway concert you need to attend.

        Their GRAMMY was TOGETHER!!
        Those 13 weeks on top of the charts was TOGETHER!!

        Both been hot and Monica is the only one of the 2 to Top the Billboard 200 charts, so she hasn’t done too bad for a so called lessor.

        Brandy will slay as black entertainment legend who can blow.
        Monica will also continue in the Royal box of R&B.

        👏 👏 Keep on ladies

      Monica has sold more albums than Nicki and Code Red will probably outsell that flop Tori put out.

    This album is so bad I was actually looking forward to hearing good R&B music from Moni but this album is terrible it don’t even sound like she is a happy married woman to that fine ass man Shannon.

      And that comment alone just confirms you didn’t hear the whole of Code Red. I’m sure from memory they’re 5 songs all husband related. Maybe even 6. Some would argue maybe too many on one subject but her vocal delivery on those are exceptional

    My honest review:
    Code Red is how New Life should have sounded with certain tempos & vocals, so props on this 8th project.

    The songs that balance the old and new R&B are Just Right 4 Me, All Men Lie, Deep & Alone In Your Heart.

    I was glad Monica tapped into her R&B/Pop ballad styles (Like on her 2nd album) with I Know, Hustler’s Ambition and Anchor.

    Nice salute to the 80s era with Suga.

    Love Just Ain’t Enough is a song that’s an almost 4me. Monica’s 60s/70s harmonies stand out, her voice real nice BUT wasn’t as keen on Timbaland’s voice on this.

    Title track should have just been a bonus track, im not into it. Saints & Sinners is another good song but I don’t particularly like the chorus phrasing wise. Glad the gospel was incorporated.

    Not my ultimate fav album of hers but super solid from H2T (from 2-14).
    Was refreshing to here some different elements.

    Top 5 favs: Anchor, Deep, Alone In Your Heart, I Know & All Men Lie.

        But yet all Monica albums except first two have first weeks sales above Brandy.
        Monica has two albums that have sold 1st week numbers above 180,000.
        Bran has none. Monica has an album the has topped the Billboard 200 and B doesn’t.
        Brandy brand is overall bigger she slayed TV & 1St black cinderella.
        Their most important accolade came together by the genius of Brandy’s idea.

        Both are fine and representing so sit down b4 I have to kick down your door & smack a bish.

    Her fans had the nerve to come for Ciara when she couldn’t even push units a week before Christmas. Sorry but the album is stale with the exception of 2 songs. Better luck next time Mo.

        Ciara is much more relevant than Hoodnica has been since ’98. Tread lightly sis.

      With the attributes Ciara has with pop style voice and killer dance moves, she should have been up there with Bey and Ri and thats the gods honest truth.

      She failed herself in many aspects. But still a talent.

      Monica is R&B royalty no matter how you want slice and dice it 20yo in, 8 albums, THE 1ST artist to top the R&B & Hip-Hop charts in 90s, 2000s and 2010s. What this means for basic instinct people is her LEGACY & is cemented.

      Ci 1st week suggests she is not the top of R&B and this Pop based album is in tin pan lane cooking some rotten eggs Pop chart wise.

      Wheres her footing stamped, cus the heifer is Bambi on ice not keeping up with the Kardashians.

      Promise yoooou FOR YOU I WILL if we must do this.

    This album is amazing …..! I’m disappointed with the sales but not with the material. Every song jams. Monica still has potential to release another single and continue selling albums. It’s all on her team how this album goes.

    What monica did on this cd is what people often accuse her of…never stepping out her comfort zone. This is clearly her most experimental album. She tried different arrangements and sounds and for that, I have to give her credit for that. She also sounds a lot cleaner than on the last album.

    Still, it’s a bit messy in places with monotonous prodiction and timbaland singing on those tracks. All in all, it’s an ok album with decent replay value.

    While I adore Monica, I haven’t adored one of her albums since After The Storm. I will agree that Code Red is different for her, but it doesn’t flow that well IMO.
