      • Kitty Puurrzz January 24, 2015

        I knew it wouldn’t take long for a Trandy STAN to come on Mo’s post hating. Your fav hasn’t been hot since Clinton’s presidency… Have several seats.

      • ChrisFierce January 24, 2015

        Girl bye! brandy haven’t had a hit, a platinum album, a #1 single, a tour, or a sold out concert in damn near 13 years, so have several seats with that b*******. If you cared so much about your girl you wouldn’t allow her to have 3 back to back flip as* albums!

      • King M.J January 24, 2015

        Grow up.

      • King M.J January 24, 2015

        ^^In response to that Maurice guy, “Grow up”.

    i f****** love monica. im so ready , the name sounds edgy and i hope the album holds up to it.. I f**** with monica either way. ppl complain she stays in the rnb lane for so long but i relate to her music, not so much the street ratchet songs but i love that she’s a ride a die girl. and i followed her long to know her life is no gimmick. Monica is one of the realest in the game. Also meet her 3 times and she’s so humble, loving and god fearing. Platinum or nah monica will have a long career a head of her. She’s very likable by many producers.. Please let this album be more crossover if not im still a fan

  3. ADELEFAN January 24, 2015

    Not to mention she’s another 90’s artist that can still go Gold and make #1’s in this generation. minus her last album “New Life” which staled over 200k. No she’s no a POP star like she was in the 90’s but the urban community still lover her . i still hear “Everything to me” being played
    Btw Still Standing sold over 700k. late 2011 Billboard posted 690k and just last year hits daily posted 720k. So these website need to update their information stating she only sold 450k and shipped 500k. that’s a f***** lie i followed those sales well enough to know she sold more

    • ChrisFierce January 24, 2015

      Exactly! And let’s not forget After The Storm sold over 1 million copies!

  4. Dem Lessers January 24, 2015

    Why are people still working with Polow Da Don. I get they’re related but that guys discography is dominated with flops. He only has Anaconda to bring up from recent years and that beat is recycled. Anyways I doubt she’ll do over 100k first week again, excluding streams.

    • Dem Lessers January 24, 2015

      Good luck to her though!

  5. Ladyboy January 24, 2015


  6. DanYiel Teflon January 24, 2015

    I’m always checking for “Monica” I iwn ALL OF HER ALBUMS….a Natural Baptist talent!!

  7. Stephy Jackson January 24, 2015

    She has a decent voice. I’ma preview the album to see if I like it.

    • Stephy Jackson January 24, 2015

      When it comes out.

  8. RCW January 24, 2015

    I’m excited to hear what Monica is coming with. She is one vet artist that can still move albums and not to mention her singles always sit atop the charts historically…I’m sure she’s bringing the fire! #codered #dove

  9. Kitty Puurrzz January 24, 2015

    Monica is going to SLAY…. I’m so ready for this album. The album title ALONE shows me that she’s ready to take risks & try something different… I can’t wait. OMG

  10. Kitty Puurrzz January 24, 2015

    P.S- Thanks Grapejuice for shedding light on MONICA. I needed this.

  11. DontPhunkWithMyFerg January 24, 2015

    I don’t support people who betray their friends.

    • ADELEFAN January 24, 2015


    • Kitty Puurrzz January 24, 2015

      Your fav needs to be more concerned about why she was sitting in the BACK of a fashion award show while RIHANNA was sitting in the front…

    • ChrisFierce January 24, 2015

      That’s fine! Maybe you should support your fav and at least get her a hit single, and gold album. Being that she hasn’t had one since her Sophmore album. And this new single “I Bet” will more than likely stall at the bottom of the charts in the negatives at that -100!

  12. Twist January 24, 2015

    Best news in 2015! Yeeeessss

  13. Gee January 24, 2015

    Monica is an artist that stays true to herself whether you like it or not, and for that I respect her. I think code red will be that balance her fans have been asking for I can’t wait to give the finish product a listen.

  14. Al January 24, 2015

    The last true vocalists of my time Monica needs to be a legend now. I love how true to her roots she is. Her voice is amazing. She needs to tour the UK she never has. Hope she has a killer first single off this album I have all her albums. Bow down welcome back Mo

  15. RICHIE_RICH January 24, 2015

    I’m so ready ….she was liked by Whitney and Mike

  16. Fancy BISH January 24, 2015

    Monica is just everything…she’s beautiful, talented, poised and REAL…I am so excited for her new music…TLC and Monica?! LAWD 😉

  17. #JACKIE (Cici da baddest) January 24, 2015

    Lol this b**** has people fooled with her phony self. Don’t be fooled by her holier then thou Instagram post………..Didn’t she murder her ex in a graveyard some year back and say he killed himself? Her and brandy are killers

    • Al January 24, 2015

      Eh from a Ciara fan plz child. You have never had any success after your debut and each of ur albums fall harder than a Kim face lift. Sit ur crazy ass down. Has C-Adams Apple-iara ever or broke any records hmm?! Until Ciara left anything behind in music history than take ur big thod, single parent dried up hits and can’t chart on the hot 100 ass please # POW #TAKEYOSEAT

    • Lake Erie January 24, 2015

      Hold up……. Are you serious? Any truth to it?

      • Al January 25, 2015

        Your first album sold ur second just pushed platnuim and after that?! When you last have a big hit child?!, 5 years ago that with JT girl bye

  18. Quan January 24, 2015

    I am so ready for this. Monica is the only artist outside of Whitney that I purchased every album. I grew up with this woman. Her music has always been authentic to me. She sings with so much soul and conviction. Not only that she has a BRAIN. She puts family first which is important these days. I really think #CODERED will be worth the wait. She doesnt need to be mainstream. She stays true to her and remains grounded and humble. That is what provide a long career like she has. Consistency, true to your art, and never trying to be like other artist. I love Monica!

  19. Paws January 24, 2015

    I can’t wait

  20. Kyle January 24, 2015

    I’m so ready for a new Monica album! I hope she stays true to her sound and talent and showcases her amazing voice. I thoroughly enjoyed her last album “New Life.” People criticized it because it was ballad heavy but that’s the kind of Monica I like!

    • Kitty Puurrzz January 24, 2015

      She always does. That’s why i love her.

  21. GAslickmouf January 24, 2015

    She use to be good years ago. Now not so much.

    Her over singing in live shows is just over the top. She’s like a MJB singing way too much just ruins the live performance.

    Her older music was best, but now days music and radios are so lost when it come to what ppl really wana hear and not same s*** over and over. Don’t see her making any moves as she did years ago.

    I suggest she put her CNA certificate to good use.

    • Kitty Puurrzz January 24, 2015

      Monica always delivers. Clearly you’re a hater. You came with a bunch of FALSE info … No CNA certification. & she’s the ONLY R&B artist from the 90s who can come & STILL sell records in the 2010’s. Consistently

  22. Missdiva January 24, 2015

    The Best news I heard all week..I Can’t Freakin Wait for Monica music
    I Luv her Soooo much…she is Real Kind Talented Sweet and here to
    Stay, Yes Jesus!!!! CODE RED Lets Go Mo……About to Slay RnB again!!!!

    Ciara puppets need to worry bout that forced drained ballad she just released.
    Don’t blame someone else cause she was StupiD and open her legs to a
    Chronic cheater with 6 kids and 5 Babymamas, thinking she could make
    A honest man outta him..I can’t with these Dum Silly Chicks looking foolish
    Over a man..I bet Monica warned that Dummy she went on and messed
    With him anyway, made her bed now lie in it Cici!!rollseyes..Ugh in done…


    • Al January 24, 2015

      And until Ciara can have an 8 we k No1 25 years into her career than please try cause she c*** slay a chicken

  23. Missdiva January 24, 2015

    @GAslickmouf Correction: mighty mouth…Monica is a Forensic Specialist
    Which makes good money and is Highly Respected in the Medical Field
    She doing that and Music which is Notable, these other R&B chicks
    Better try something else too for money cause only a few selling records
    Now…now that u got the correct info step up your wannabe comedian
    Lines cause u corny ass hell!!!

  24. Paulo January 24, 2015

    YAAAAAAASSSSSS! I’m so ready for new Monica. She will slay your favs vocals as she always does so you girls betta act pressed hahaha! I’m not the biggest Polow fan but he worked on Still Standing and that was a great album so I got my hopes up.

  25. Career Ender January 24, 2015

    welcome back Mo

  26. Keyshia No Cold January 24, 2015

    She could never be better than KC that’s for sure. Good luck tho

  27. Kitty Puurrzz January 24, 2015

    Girl …. ^^^^ LMFAO

  28. Paulo January 24, 2015

    KC who? You mean that girl that feats on Monica’s hit Trust? That one that got slayed every time they performed it live?

    Ooh no no silly me… you must mean K Michelle. Love her. She should duet with Mo.

  29. HOWYOULIKEIT January 24, 2015

    All of her albums are really masterpieces. I cant wait

  30. Rocnar January 24, 2015

    I just hope it’s more upbeat. I expect ballads and midtempos from Monica and that’s fine, but she still need to lend her voice to some feel good music that is danceable.

  31. FutureCIARA January 24, 2015

    I’ll be here for it. I like Monica and her albums always have 4-5 bangers!

  32. Rihanna #1 fan t January 24, 2015

    yassssssssssssssssssss Love Monica

  33. Ajm265 January 24, 2015

    Yay mo such a bright light. Love her. I heard some clips and she has her focus back as she did during after the storm and still standing. If she puts out a hit she moves units and that’s a fact.

    • Kitty Puurrzz January 25, 2015

      Her clips on IG have been SLAYING me.

  34. GAslickmouf January 25, 2015

    Whatever sweet heart

  35. B4REAL02 January 26, 2015

    I’m here for this!!!!! Come thru Mo!!!
