New Song: Monica – ‘Mirror’ (Snippet)

Published: Monday 1st Mar 2010 by Sam

As the release of Monica‘s new LP ‘Still Standing’ draws ever-nearer its March 23rd release, a short snippet of a new track titled ‘Mirror‘ has surfaced. The Grammy Award winner spoke of the  Jim Jonsin produced track in our interview with her last week:

One of the songs that I just recently recorded, which I really love, was done by Jim Jonsin and it’s titled ‘Mirror.’ It basically says that ‘when I look in the mirror I don’t have to feel ashamed’. It’s saying that I’m happy with who I am and who I have become, and because of that I’m able to do whatever it is that I want to do in life without hesitation. I think that’s something that you should feel on a consistent basis because people are so judgemental and unfair now that it prevents some people from taking chances and doing things that they may enjoy. So ‘Mirror’ is one my favourites.

You can listen to a LQ snippet of the track below, which should give a taster of what to expect from the song in its entirety. I’m loving what I hear thus far!

Hit or Miss?

    why dont you post about beyonce being in court ONCE AGAIN? Last week she was acused by a bulgarian designer that she stole his ideas for her HOUSE OF DIARRHEA and this week a musician acused her of stealing ideas for her “Bootylicious” song, she said she created the word ROFL, WHY DONT YOU POST THE TRUTH ABOUT THE THIEF? DIVA MY ASS, TALENTED MY ASS, LEGEND MY ASS!!!

    Monica has got that ”hair did, nails done, ATL chick” thing going on and it’s not good marketing. SHE IS TOO SAFE. She looks like she, Kandi Buruss, Nene, etc., would love the same clothes and hair. It appears as if they all shop at the same mall and neither of them has a different point of view.
    If she had a bit more rawness and authenticity to her, I think people will respect her craft more.

    im feeln it

  10. Jacob March 1, 2010

    @SailorMan Wow that has got to be the dumbest statement ive heard in a while. She is too safe? Do you hear this track? It’s some Christina Agulera s***, she clearly stepped out the box with this one. And to say she her style is hood? Ummm I cant recall the last time i seen a girl in the hood wearing constantly Fendi, Chanell, Loui V, j Brand, Alexander McQueen & such…please dont speak out the side of your neck next time. Know what your talking about. And rawness & authenticity? Please Monica is trademarked for her raw vocals & her realnness & humility!

    WHY DONT YOU POST THE FACT THAT THE MOTHER OF JASMINA AMENA HAS THIS ON TWITTER? : “Apparently there are some negative blogs out there. For the record, Rihanna has been nothing but really nice !!! ”
    Her account was hacked you fucktard, you wish Rihanna would be a mean person so you could watch her fall and laugh her ass off, well, not really dude, try another time.
    Everyone can see that on “Oneforjasmina” twitter

    OH, and where the f*** is the post about Beyonce being in court again for stealing songs? This time is Bootilycious, ROFL

    sounding good.monica is back!!!

  18. Music2010 March 1, 2010

    I will be glad when Monica’s album come and go. Her voice annoys the s*** out of me. Give me Brandy anyday. I have not been impressed with anything I’ve heard thus far from the new project.

  19. Dave March 1, 2010

    @MUSIC2010, B**** BYE!! Then get off her damn post. Her voice is amazing, & if you don’t appreciate it. It’s simple as this: this is America, you have the choice & obligation to do mostly whatever you want to do, “INCLUDING” not listening to her music & reading her post. So in closing, VAMOOSE!

  20. Dave March 1, 2010

    The song matters!

  21. rider March 1, 2010

CAN’T WAIT FOR THE ALBUM AND FOR THE THE COMMENT ABOUT BRANDY UMMM NO SHE COULD NEVER TOUCH MONICA WHEN IT COMES TO SINGING MONICA GOT THAT SPECIAL GIFT. WELCOME BACK MONICA! A.K.A LIL WHITNEY

    Complete randomness:

    Is is just me, or does anyone hear Rihanna on this track???

  23. antertain March 2, 2010

    Sounds like a 3/4th single type song.

    Maybe a 2nd so she taps into the pop market but i don’t think that’d be right so soon.

    They are really trying to hide the official track listing from us til the last minute aren’t they gosh.

    Monica’s transitions between notes in this track sounds like it gonna be phenominal.

    TEAM MONICA 2010
    (If you don’t like her, GET USED TO HER lol. Punk asses with yo b****-assness!)

  24. Truthwillprevail March 2, 2010

  25. MushyLove_1992 March 2, 2010

    This is amazing! Love the fact that shes stepping out of the box, but at the same time staying true to herself. Miss Monica is too real…

  26. Julian March 3, 2010

    This song sounds hot! Can’t wait to hear it in its full, finished, and mastered glory.
