R&B star Monica is set to follow-up her Urban smash ‘Everything To Me’ with new single ‘Here I Am’. Confirming the news just moments ago on Twitter, the Grammy winner also revealed that she and label-mate Jamie Foxx have put an interesting new twist on the song, alluding to a re-worked / collaboration serving as the single version.
To say I’m ecstatic would an understatement! From the standpoint of yours truly, ‘Here I Am’ is not only Monica’s best offering on her ‘Still Standing’ LP, it’s one of her best songs period. Besides the stunning vocals and production (courtesy of Polow Da Don), the purely R&B track is lyrically on another level; something which lends itself to some great video concepts.
With ‘Still Standing’ selling another 80,000 copies in its 2nd week, it’s fair to say that Monica is doing it BIG all over again. It honestly is great to see R&B making a comeback, and Monica serving as the face of it’s revival. Awesome.
