    I will def. be buying this album!!! But why ya’ll make the headline seem like she pregnant!!! You know it’s gonna start a rumor!!!

  4. GAslickmouf June 23, 2011

    All she can do is sing slow songs and ballads. None and I do mean none of her Up tempo songs has ever done well and I do mean EVER DONE WELL!!!

    Slow songs from start to finish bores me. I hope this new life of hers really has a heart that beats this time around cuz the slow songs kills.

    Good luck

    Nxt up…………….. Brandy!!!!!

    SO I GUESS SHE’S NOT ADDING LIL KIM TO THE SETLIST… she said she was going to at a live show , but when they asked her questions on her ustream she dodged them

  7. JUDAS666 June 23, 2011

  8. quanberg June 23, 2011

  12. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) June 23, 2011

    YAAS! So excited to hear new music from her…Still Standing was solid, but I want ‘New Life’ to be amazing and a step forward for her

  13. rick June 23, 2011

    you know nothing and i mean NOTHING about music, she has had uptempo hits…

  14. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) June 23, 2011

    @the guy that said she always sings ballads, She has actually done quite a lot of mid-tempos(Boy is Mine, The First Night etc)and even some uptempos, like All Eyez On Me.

  15. Brashly June 23, 2011

    old monica just be popping them out..i see..
    …I got like every color Lip gloss now..they been giving back after PETA got them for animal testing..

  16. GAslickmouf June 23, 2011

    Some ppl need to learn how to read!! I Said NONE OF HER UPTEMPO HITS HAS DONE WELL.

    Compare her slow hits VS her utempo hits.

    Her ONLY MAJOR HITS HAS BEEN HER SLOW SONGS. Thats the point SMDH Some of You guys Need schooling.

    Therefore her slow songs is all she can Really do.

    Boy is mine was a Majory Hit simply bcuz Brandy was on it.

    Im done, that is all!!!

  17. Bouncy Baby! June 23, 2011

    lol u guys………….made me think she was pregnant. lol

    love this blog.

  18. HunnyBunny June 23, 2011

    GAslickmouf is an obvious Brandy stand. Monica gets props because she has actually remained relevant and on the charts. Give credit where it is due. She had a successful run when Brandy cant get no hit and was dropped from her label. Keep it real

  19. LR June 23, 2011

    I won’t be buying. I will download it for free.

  20. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) June 23, 2011

    @GASLICKMOUF… I have 3 words for u : THE FIRST NIGHT :It was her first SOLO No.1 and it was a mid-tempo with a really hip and cool vibe.Monica knows uptempos is not her lane, but you can’t say she’s never had a successful song that was not a ballad
    (When people want to respond to a comment, why do they always start with “You guys can’t read”?? YES WE CAN)

  21. The Man June 23, 2011

    Monica has had successful mdtempos as well, she does what works for her, and what difference does it make as long as she creates great music. Monica is very poised and talented.


    lol I thought she was pregnant as well…

  23. Robier June 23, 2011

    Yeah i’ll buy but i got double meaning from the statement

  24. KNUCK June 23, 2011

    but wait…. yall might wanna keep it LITE and BRITE on Brandy RayALLAH Norwood, OK?!

    IDK what slickmouf was trying to say, but this isn’t a brandy vs. monica thing.. jeez..

    I love monica though and I can’t wait to hear what she comes up with. She really does it for her fans and comes from a good place.

  25. RosaRubbel June 23, 2011


    I’m so glad she’s coming back. One of the few cd’s I’m actually anticipating!

  26. MaZ June 23, 2011

    Great News! Can’t wait!

    What about Monica TV reality show??

  27. Jasmine June 23, 2011

    I will definitely be buying this album. I loved Still Standing. I think with age, her voice has matured in a good way. It is more stronger and less pitchy. GAslickmouf Monica has had plenty of uptempo hits (The Boy Is Mine, The First Night, So Gone, Just Another Girl, I’ve Got To Have It, Like This and Like That, One of Them Days, etc).

    I would not care if she did an album full of ballads, because her voice really shines on a slow tempo or ballad type track. I think some of

  28. TJ June 23, 2011

    OF COURSE I WILL BE BUYING IT…. MONICA has had NUMEROUS HIT… Check her stats… Monica stays in her lane, she does what she does, and stays true to who she is… She puts out very solid music…. I LOVE Her and I will buy several copies….

    HATERS will always HATE….

    Just because they don’t do well, doesn’t mean they don’t sound good…i love ‘betcha’ from still standing

  30. Karen June 23, 2011

    One of her first songs was uptempo “Don’t Take it Personal” and it did well! She also had a great collabo with Brandy “The Boy is Mine” which was not a ballad or a slow song. Monica can sing it all be she is not a ‘get crunk’ singer if that is what you meant.
