    Monica is so very respectful of Whitney, her legacy and her influence on the industry. She has repeatedly showed her respect and talks about the many things that Whitney have done to help her that she doesn’t speak of herself. Ms. Houston is respected in the industry and her peers for a reason. She’s selfless. She was suppose to do the entire Waiting to exhale soundtrack herself and she said no, she wanted other ladies on it. She was suppose to record, ‘Let it Flow’ herself but gave it to Toni Braxton.
    Luv Mo and Luv, luv, Ms. Houston. The G.O.A.T
    Hear what Monica says, she don’t let no one talk about Whitney in her presence. She DEMANDS respect for her. Go tell it, Mo.
    Looking forward to both of these ladies next projects. I hope if Ms. Houston does ‘Getting To Happy’ aka ‘Waiting to Exhale’ pt 2 that Monica gets a solo spot on that soundtrack. That would be hot!

    Wow! Monica sure isn’t sleeping on her renewed success! New album next year and I can’t blame her. Most of these artists now are churning out albums within a year of their last one. I appreciate her shouting out and tributing Whitney Houston. This has caused me to research her and youtube her performances and I’m blown away. What a singer and voice! I see why Mo is so in awe. I copped both albums from Mo and Whitney Houston and I like all two. Difference voices but real r and b music never the less.

  9. English Babe* September 22, 2010

    i looooooooooooooooooove MONICA, LOVE HER RESPECT FOR WHITNEY ALSO.

  10. Kendra September 22, 2010

    YAY MO!

  11. royalkev September 22, 2010

    This is happening pretty fast, but I think recording a new album would be in her best intrest. I’m not a Monica fan, but I admire the growth I see in her as an individual. She’s very down to earth also, I wish her the best.

  12. royalkev September 22, 2010

    I also love that she continues to honor Queen Whitney! She’s the voice and best there ever will be!

  13. TheMan September 22, 2010

    i love when these young artist give Whitney her props and show why she is the VOICE and the huge influence she has had on this entire generation of singers, second only to MJ. This made me an even bigger fan of monica’s.

  14. rebirthofslick September 22, 2010

    i have been a monica fan for a long time and im so happy that she is already working on a new album but at the same time i know not to get my hopes up. even if i have to wait 3+ yrs from now its worth the wait.

  15. GangsterA September 22, 2010

    yes monica still standing is amazing i love it can’t wait for a new album

  16. truthteller September 22, 2010

    glad Monica did good with this album now I’mma just need her to drop a fast song with some beats. Enough of the ballads. Nice shout out to Whitney Houston. She sure love her some Whitney..

  17. sokmidyk September 22, 2010

    certified gold ? really thought you guys called that A HUGE COMMERCIAL FLOP!

  18. Speechless September 22, 2010

    Shouts out to Monica and Ciara!

  19. Wire September 22, 2010

    Flopica ready to flop again so soon?

    She’s ghetto, talentless, ugly, stupid, and everything else that’s bad.

  20. rihluv September 22, 2010

  21. ~TeAM WeeZY~ September 22, 2010

    I love Monica. I’m glad she is doing so well. She’s in the same boat as Keyshia Cole, great voice but needs a vocal coach to enhance what they already have.

  22. Brittany September 22, 2010

    I don’t give a f*** what Rihanna has sold! She would never accomplish what Monica has. Yeah, she made have some number one singles but the song lacks substance as well as the fact that Rihanna’s annoying voice is singing on the track. Yeah, her label may pump into alot of money in her but as we can all see the record industry is driven by looks these days instead of pure talent. And considering Rihanna stans are nothing but kids who was born in the middle and late 90’s, they can’t appreciate a REAL TRUE TALENTED ARTISTS LIKE BRANDY AND MONICA. Because those two ladies paved the way for the model turned singer. They have something she would never have: stage presence and a voice!

  23. Robier September 22, 2010

    DAMN

  24. BrandyNMonicaStan September 22, 2010

    Let’s go Mo ! Super excited to you doing something that proves real R&B is not totally dead. I love your spirit and the way that you uplift other artist Whitney Houston is the best and you have the right idea by looking to her for inspiration.

  25. BrandyNMonicaStan September 22, 2010

    oops..*see*

  26. theman September 22, 2010

    Monica and Rihanna are not of the same cloth. Monica is a sultry r&b songstress. She’s one of the best out there. Rihanna is a manufactured Pop artist. She’s more of a singles seller than album seller. I find it very odd that Monica almost outsold Rihanna whom has had a ton of press,publicity,number1 hit, Pop airplay and all. Monica just catered to her r&b demographic. Monica is far more substantial in terms of quality than Rihanna. Rihanna is not a big album seller.

  27. RosaRubbel September 22, 2010

    Wow already a new album? Awesome! But she has enough single material on ‘Still Standing’…

  28. 4 the LOVERS September 22, 2010

    SPEAK ON IT MONICA! Whitney is the greatest and always will be. and LMAO When she was asked to who she’s lookin forward to in the fall, “Who’s Comin?!?” like she could care less, lol. Love Monica. one of the best Voices of the younger generation.

  29. HATIN IS FOR SUCKAS September 22, 2010

    Yes I love Monica she can come back and show these no singing talent b****** how its down.

  30. HATIN IS FOR SUCKAS September 22, 2010

    Wire

    Are you mad Monica has more talent then your fav

  31. LEO September 22, 2010

    Monica is from the old school era. Love her giving love back to Ms Houston and not forgrtting how she helped her.

  32. LEO September 22, 2010

    I admire Monica for constantly showing love and respect to Whitney and not forgetting how she helped her. That’s a good look Whitney never speaks about herself and it’s good for people who know her or have been affected by her deeds to bring them out for the public to know.

    that’s a good look

  33. JR September 22, 2010

    I do not understand how one can compare a Monica to a Rihanna. Are you serious? Real talent vs. a product. Okay and lets not forget people like Monica help paved the way for people like Rihanna. I do get the frustration about the shade thrown towards Rihanna by this site (which is not cool) but please Monica will have more longevity and quality songs than Rihanna. Name one Rihanna song that has substance that you will say 5 to ten years from now ….NONE…anyway I love Monica. i love how she speaks, how she sings and how she makes it clear she is not perfect

  34. CELEBRITY September 23, 2010

    This last release as really solidified the force that is Monica in R/B music. She releases meaningful records and at the same time people rush out to buy her records, which is a rarity for an R/B singer. Monica is the truth and I wore out all her damn albums. As usual I will be anticipating the release of this new album.

  35. monique September 23, 2010

    monica is delusional!

  36. Diimpz September 23, 2010

    MONICA IS THE TRUTH!!! ENOUGH SAID AND WHITNEY HOUSTON IS THE GREATEST OF THEM ALL!

  37. DION-ISH September 23, 2010

    LOL At some of these ppl comparing Monica to Rihanna ???? Umm there like A Million Times Different! and Monica DID NOT pave the way for Rihanna because Rihanna is an a TOTALLY different Lane!

    And Rihanna outsold Monica sooo what is the Chick Above talking about?!

  38. CELEBRITY September 23, 2010

    @DION-ish

    In what planet did Rihanna outsell Monica? Certainly not on planet earth.

    Rihanna with a massive hit single sold 182k first week of Rated R

    Monica with a mediocre pop hit sold 185k first week of “Still Standing”

    185 > 182

    MONICA WINS!!!

  39. LoveRealness September 23, 2010

    Monica is the truth.. She has sold 501,994 which is over the gold mark so stfu!! Quit putting Rihanna in it. There is no comparison.. Monica sangs!!!! Not throwing shade to Rih’s vocals just not Monica worthy!

  40. antertain September 23, 2010

    Love Mo

    She knows and respects people who paved the way for her and showa appreciation.

    Monica is not a commercial puppet like Ri Ri so the sales will never match overall but Mo is holding it down strong in the R&B world and is well respected in the industry, which is why Clive Davis has never let her leave his label from DAY 1 of signing her back in the early 90’s.

    Yes she had problems and got caught up in he says, she says scenarios but she learned and grew up.
    Monica isn’t shy 2speak up rightly or wrongly and that’s what i love about her. The greatest thing is that she can admit when she’s wrong and loads of artist dont wanna do those things.

    Monica always hits platimun so Still Standing will get there soon enough.
    Looking forward to Here I Am & Remix with Trey Songz..

    Team Monica ;D
