    Mo’ got on my favorite color chartreuse! She looks fabulous in this pic!

    I love the song. Old school vibe.

    • maurice May 19, 2015

      Monica knows how to make me yawn with this song.
      I yawned, like 6 times. No joke.

  2. Quinton251 aka Lil Wayne Stan May 19, 2015

    I like it, Wayne brought the bars and Monica did her thang.

  3. SMH May 19, 2015

    Love it.

  4. Jino May 19, 2015

    Yasssssss Snatch Brandy’s wig one last time sis!!!!

    • Brandy = Queen/King B May 19, 2015

      Monica could never do that–keep on being delusional.

      • Jino May 19, 2015

        New life outsold two eleven

        Still Standing outsold Human

        When was Brandy’s last number one on the hip hop rnb charts????

    • Knock On Norwood May 19, 2015

      @Jino Lmao, so only the last two lowest selling albums? Haha, I see you knew better to not bring up the first four.

      • Ciara The Flop May 19, 2015

        Oooooooooooooohhh…you draaaaaaaaaagged the hell out of her. Yaaaaaaasss bish. YAAAAAASSSSSS!!!

    • Mary Mary Why You Buggin’ May 19, 2015

      As a huge fan of both Monica and Brandy, you know “Never Say Never” outsold Monica’s entire discography. Don’t do that.

      * repeat ‘Just Right For Me’ *

      • Jino May 19, 2015

        Ok Brandy’s never say never era slayed. But what has she done within the past ten years doe???

      • Toohotfortv May 19, 2015

        What do you mean, “what has she done…?” I guess you’re forgetting “put it down” and where it landed in the charts. Starring roles in “drop dead diva”, “the game”, “Chicago” on Broadway, not to mention working with diversified talent such as the legendary Nile Rodgers, and new talent like “The Walls Group”, whilst getting accolades from essentially all of her peers: from the likes of jill scott and india arie, to literally every up and coming r&b vocalist, to artist as varied as coldplay and bjork! So please tell me, (and I actually enjoy, Monica) when has Monica ever?

      • musicknowledge June 8, 2015

        No it didn’t you should check your sources, and check who has the most #1 #Monica

    • Danny Bey May 19, 2015

      Two Eleven outsold New Life just to be clear. Check your facts boo.

      • Jino May 19, 2015

        No it didnt. Sit down….and not in Brandy’s empty venue in Africa either.

      • toohotfortv May 20, 2015

        I’m sure Brandy still cashed that nice fat African check. And I’m sure you sing to crickets for free. Why you hating? #bishwhet…. google her accolades and get on her level.

    • NoHateNoShade May 20, 2015

      Monica – Still Standing still slays tho. Lowkey not really feeling this song tho. I even only liked one song on her last album ‘With You.’ I think people just choose not to say anything negative about Monica tho b/c she’s so humble and “seems” sweet, but this song sucks and is whack. They won’t really push this. She will be throwing something else out soon.

      • Jino May 20, 2015

        @Toohotfortv

        And what part of that fat check do you get to stan for her??? (Crickets) exactly. if only yall would buy her music the way you defend her on the internet. Again …..sit down

  5. knock on norwood May 19, 2015

    Alright mo, I hear you. Real cute song.

    • Brandy = Queen/King B May 19, 2015

      Heyyyy a fellow Star! #StarzDoItBest

  6. Barb-wire May 19, 2015

    Nice seeing Wayne continuing musically despite the dispute with Cash Money, now he should drop that Carter album. As for the song, it’s very nice and melodical Yes Moni.

  7. JuJu May 19, 2015

    I love it, cook out vibe.

  8. Redd Vega May 19, 2015

    Love this …..????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  9. BeyRihLiyah May 19, 2015

    it’s ok

  10. BeyRihLiyah May 19, 2015

    anyways taylor’s bad blood is so damn catchy she knows how to make catchy ass songs

    • Monica Stan May 19, 2015

      Another pressed Aaliyah Stan

      • BeyRihLiyah May 19, 2015

        never pressed I said the song is ok

  11. Kitty Puurrzz May 19, 2015

    Yesssssssss MONICA !!! This SLAYS !

  12. Monica Stan May 19, 2015

    The princess of R&B has returned to reclaim her throne. Brandy who? Aaliyah what?

    • BeyRihLiyah May 19, 2015

      Aaliyah and brandy Discography shits on Hoodnica’s even mya’s discography is better hoodnica is bland and boring from her music to her music videos to her fashion she is bland and basic and boring no creativity what so ever

      • Mo’Reefa May 19, 2015

        Hmmm, lets see. She has NEVER had to take off her clothes, sing abt suckin d*** or sing abt bein a bad bish to sell a record. Unlike Beyonce’s dumb, uneducated, unoriginal, inspired ass, She finished Hs. She can articulate herself. Her kids look waaaaay better than blue poison ape looking ass. Her husband looks way better than Monkey Joe as well. She can actually sing unlike R**** n Beyonce.She dresses far better than hoeonce. She’s had a certified album as well as a number one hit in the 2010’s unlike Mya, Brandy, & Aaliyah.

      • Credits May 19, 2015

        Angel of mine, for you I will, don’t take it personal, so gone, should have known better, everything to me….don’t pretend like you don’t know. If you were grew up listening to Aaliyah, you were probably listening to Monica too. Oh and Bey doesn’t have a “boy is mine” no where in her discography, she is great but she doesn’t have that :).

    • XoMoDe May 19, 2015

      Not necessary. Just compliment the song without throwing petty shade towards others who aren’t the subject.

  13. BCinKS May 19, 2015

    There is way too much going on in this song. Her vocals are lost in the beat. It sounds like it MIGHT be hot, but Polow should’ve edited/mixed the track better.

    • Mary Mary Why You Buggin’ May 19, 2015

      I agree with this 100%

      Imma need a new mix done for the album for real. But I like it.

  14. Missdiva May 19, 2015

    This about Monica keep other people out discussion..

    I’m Lovin This……Perfect For Summer….This a Urban Smash
    LilWayne verse is Hott and great start of the song, Monica vocals
    Are Clear Strong and Epic…can’t wait to purchase….

  15. CodeRed May 19, 2015

    MONICA is back! This is the perfect summer song! Radio friendly and hands down a smash! Monica vocals are always undeniably amazing! I’m so happy! All of these comments about other artist are not needed. It’s not about her going against anybody it’s her moment and she’s doing great!

  16. maluce May 19, 2015

    This, my friends, is who I’ve been waiting on. I love Monica! Undeniable vocals. My bish is BACK

  17. MellyMel May 19, 2015

    New Sound, Hot vocals…this song is straight up fire. Can we please keep Brandy, Aaliyah, Beyonce & all comparisons of any & every female artist off this post! What are y’all 12!..lol. There is enough room 4 every1. Radio ain’t playing r&b…if anything we should b united.

    Back 2 R&B Goddess Monica. Can’t wait 4 Code Red. Loving the new look & sound!

  18. Kitty Puurrzz May 19, 2015

    Why is Brandy being mentioned on Monica’s post. That beef is so 96. Both ladies have MATURED & grown into LEGENDS of R&B. LET THAT GO. Love this MONICA… Her voice sounds so angelic & pure.

  19. MonicaSlays…DEAL May 19, 2015

    Looove it!! I’m not here to compare Mo to any other artist,her career speaks for itself! Im just here to enjoy the music. All the best to Monica, and rnb artist with good music in general

  20. Slay_Hive May 19, 2015

    I love R&B and I like Monica but this sounds a little dated and its just alright. Her comeback single should of been a lot stronger IMO.

    • Paulo May 19, 2015

      I don’t think it sounds dated but I kinda see what you mean. Since her rumoured release date is September, her team will prob push a “real” lead single (bet it’s a ballad) closer to the album date?

  21. Centurion May 19, 2015

    Preserve your legacy. That is all.

  22. Loveme May 19, 2015

    I love it, Monica we ready for you bring back that good R&B music! SMASHHHHH!

  23. Molly May 19, 2015

    Anyways today is baby futures 1st BDAY!!!

  24. LoveBey May 19, 2015

    That was cute. I love Monica I’m excited to hear more new music from her

  25. RATEDXXX May 19, 2015

    I like it…sounds fresh and new..nothing generic about it…

    I always liked the fact that Monica always stayed true to her r&b roots

    she is so under rated as an r&b artist….

    I cannot wait to see what else she has in store for us

    wayne is my n****…he always kills it

  26. Tez May 19, 2015

    Please leave Brandy out of this. They aren’t even in the same boat. Brandy’s on broadway, joining the biggest show on TV (Empire), has her OWN show coming and is working on an album. Monica’s taking medical billing and coding classes lol no competition. And yeah, this song is boring as hell. I already forgot how it sounds.

    • Playboi May 19, 2015

      Monica has her coins, a phoine ass NBA player husband, and 3 beautiful children. She can study billing and coding or whatever she wants. Her or Brandy ain’t gotta prove s*** to nobody- they are legends. You are not- never will be. Get off the welfare and picking favorites on free wi-fi

    • Paulo May 19, 2015

      which is great for Brandy but if Monica is such a 2nd-rater then why are her first week sales equal or better than Brandy’s? how come her singles perform better? *sips tea*

  27. walt May 19, 2015

    I love it. It sounds great on the radio and perfect for the summer. I’m glad to see her putting out music. This and “do me like that” are dope in their own way

  28. LB May 19, 2015

    Screaming at the report that shows Kanye, Fistopher and Beyonce lyrics are below 3rd grade reading level

  29. Kitty Puurrzz May 19, 2015

    This goes HARD

  30. Mr. CEE May 19, 2015

    I’m a Monica fan, but she’s lost her edge. Sorry. This is not good enough. She needs things reminiscent of ‘Like This and Like That’, “Before You Walk Out My Life’, but in today’s vein. I hear NO HITS from Monica. C’mon Mo.

  31. Truthspeaks May 19, 2015

    It’s ok. Doesn’t make me want to buy or anticipate the album. I’m so angry because I have always loves monica. But over the years it seems she has strained her voice or something. These songs do not give her voice justice. Anybody can sing this song IMO and it’s nothing great going on in this song. This being the first single let’s me know how this album will be. Just like the others (except her first album), boring.

  32. #JACKIE May 19, 2015

    So forgettable like everything else she’s done past 2003……………………

  33. Erik May 19, 2015

    All of you that are claiming Monica and Brandy are “Legends”, please stop!…These ladies just reached DIVA status within the last few years. I’m sure one day they will be considered Legendary, but today ain’t that day. #theyhavetoputmoreworkinfirst

  34. Mark111 May 19, 2015

    I remember when Brandy and Monica (sound wise) had an edge to it. I mean they were nowhere as out of this world like aaliyah, but they used to have great uptempo songs. I’m going to say this and you guys can get mad, call me name or whatever, but these two ladies been lost and directionless since Aug 25th, 2001. Mo doesn’t really have anything to sing about, Brandy (tho she’s doing well on TV and broadway) can’t get her aristry down right. We shouldn’t be thinking of Moisha in 2015! But hey, atleast they can still sell more than 20K and 6k the 2nd week.

    • Slay_Hive May 19, 2015

      Girl bye! You give Aaliyah too much credit. She wasn’t even that big!

      • Mark111 May 19, 2015

        She was bigger than your hooker faves. #Sit

  35. KMilli May 19, 2015

    Brandy is a TV star, Movie Star, Music star & Broadway star. Two different leagues. Hoodratica is just a seasoned K. Michelle/Keyshia cole lol

  36. Molly May 19, 2015

    Decent song, but idc if I ever hear it again lol

  37. Kitty Puurrzz May 19, 2015

    I notice Brandy STANS comment on EVERYTHING involving MONICA. If Yall don’t like her why check for it?? Brandy hasn’t had a hit since Bill Clinton was president. Have several seats. She probly ran the 90s but once 2000s came, MONICA kept coming with hits & #1 albums & more success. Brandy needs to stay her goat faced ass on Broadway & focus on her acting gigs cause musically she’s over.

    • knock on norwood May 19, 2015

      That’s mostly trolls, hon. But I didn’t know fans of other artists couldn’t listen to music of others. Coming for other people’s faves hurling insults is not going to make this a hit song. Check yourself.

    • FantasiaFan May 19, 2015

      Girl please FM outsold ATS without a #1 hit like So Gone. All Eyez On Me the album was SHELVED because the single flopped! Afrodisiac outsold The Makings Of Me and Still Standing shipped 500K because of her reality show! Let’s not act like Monica was on Beyonce or someone’s level. S*** she wasn’t even on Keyshias level because even she has three platinum and one gold album from 2005-2010 lol.

  38. PeaceMaker May 19, 2015

    I scared to press play, hope it doesn’t sound like that “Do Me Like Dat” garbage she put out few weeks back.

  39. King Bey May 19, 2015

    Why are there Brandy stans in a Monica post pressed as f***. Shouldn’t you bitchs be worried about your POOR MANS ET UGLY ASS CRACK HEAD LOOKING FAV. Damn you bitchs are always in a Monica post with your insecure ass. Worry about Brandy, if you don’t like Monica, stay the f*** out of her post..ugh just like your fav, “Insecure and ugly inside and out.

    • knock on norwood May 19, 2015

      I find it hilarious how monica fans are stuck on what a few Brandy fans are saying on a blog when the mess was actually started by a monica fan/troll. Clearly this song is weak and not going anywhere otherwise yall wouldn’t be so pressed and worried about others say. #priorities #getittogether

      • King Bey May 19, 2015

        Stfu b****, and worry about your UGLY ASS ANGLER FISH looking fav “aka weak head game Norwood”, who basically right now looks like she’s on life support.

      • Knock On Norwood May 19, 2015

        Yeah, you’re mad. Worry about your fave’s barren uterus.

      • King Bey May 19, 2015

        And worry about your fav’s FLOP ASS CAREER, the 90’s says hi.

      • Knock On Norwood May 19, 2015

        Your fave, her husband, and sister ALL live for my fave! She is accomplished, blessed, and coined! Her career is just fine, thanks!

      • King Bey May 19, 2015

        Keep telling yourself that, whatever makes you feel better.

  40. Music Lover~ May 19, 2015

    My Queen, I love it! Monica never disappoints me. I’m so excited for this album! So first Toni, Janet, and now Monica, I can’t deal!!

  41. ~The Arcade~ May 19, 2015

    FIRE!!!

  42. #JACKIE May 19, 2015

    But Brandys vocals slays Monica. Monica sings like an off key goat and she is ghetto and FAKE as f***!!!!

    • Kitty Puurrzz May 19, 2015

      Girl coming from a Ciara STAN. Your fav did 19K 1st week. You’re not even ALLOWED to comment on ANYTHING concerning MONICA or Brandy …

  43. musicritique May 19, 2015

    I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE THIS MONICA, there is no denying her voice, the beat is smooth and DOPE (might be just as dope as So Gone). Why do stans of other artists (ESPECIALLY BRANDY) who aint doin s*** right now try to throw salt? if yall would buy their albums as much as you hate online then maybe they wouldn’t flop or have records on the radio RIGHT NOW. PLEASE STFU AND HAVE SEVERAL SEATS…………COME THRU MONICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • A Sip Of Brandy May 19, 2015

      Ain’t doing s***? WTF you mean? Brandy is on Broadway, she’s going to be on Empire, and will have her own show coming to BET. She’s also working on an EP, an album, and book. What is monigga doing besides releasing flop music? Maybe if you short attention span having rodents spent less time feuding with other fans, this bird’s songs would actually chart and she just MIGHT sell a few more albums. Get that sh*t together. Now you can shut up and have a row full of church pew seats.

      • Truth tea May 19, 2015

        Don’t you mean Brannigga, that murdering h**.

      • A Sip Of Brandy May 19, 2015

        No, monigga. That ghetto killer from the slums of ATL. She murdered her ex-boyfriend Jarvis. Probably for drugs. SMH #neverforget #JusticeforJarvis

      • Truth tea May 19, 2015

        Lol yeah ok, but Brannigga being a murder is a fact. #Killerofmothers #JusticeforAwatefAboudihaj

  44. Brandy STAN May 19, 2015

    This goes hard. #Starz #Doves UNITE !

  45. Kitty Puurrzz May 19, 2015

    Exactly

    • Covergirl May 19, 2015

      LOL you’ve been CAUGHT troll! You’re the fake ass Brandy, Monica and Aaliyah Stan whose been going around starting drama!

      • B^tch please May 19, 2015

        I don’t think it’s him or her, because that person literally trys to get each artists dragged. I just think from the looks of it, he or she was trying to bring the Brandy and Monica stans together with that. Anyway, I like this song, it’s hot.

  46. Paulo May 19, 2015

    It’s a grower. It’s always great to hear some new music from the Vocal Slayer but I want her second single to hit harder than this.

  47. Covergirl May 19, 2015

    The song is cool, but it doesn’t stick. Come harder Mo!

  48. cocobutta May 19, 2015

    I see you Mo.

    Dear people Monica knows her genre and she been in the industry over 20 whole years and able to still release music and execuse strong vocals.

    This is not a Brandy vs Monica vs whoever forever thing. They stay slaying the longevity and are not broke.

    A whole lot of the newer ones could learn and should.
    Nothing fake just to fit in

  49. Ajm265 May 19, 2015

    Go in Monica. And I see a lot of people are pressed and not using their computer time wisely.

  50. Dre May 19, 2015

    Mmmmh its cool i guees, but i think its just out there to get some attention? The girl can sing, so can Brandy, Beyonce, Pink, Tink…. They are just in different lanes and thank the good lord for variety, which i believe should be appreciated. We need some more luv and support or maybe just more opportunities to educate others on music without trying to drag each other. Lawd!

  51. B^tch please May 19, 2015

    I like this, it’s hot.

  52. FutureCIARA May 19, 2015

    Its ok, I need a second listen, It just doesnt sound like a first single. I wish her the best, and cant wait for the full album.

  53. rlhigh May 19, 2015

    This song goes hard. Love it. What I hate is the sicko fans talking their mess when all these ladies have grown into beautiful women, doing their thing, repping for each other. Why cant the fans do the same a help R&B music instead of speak ill about these artist. Take a page from country music. I saw Monica promote two eleven and brandy dud the same. Grew to f*** up.Cant wait for code red!!!!!!!!!!!❤❤❤❤❤

  54. Junior in Jamaica May 19, 2015

    Monica, I am BORED!

  55. Rihup May 19, 2015

    Yes Monica, this is HOT!!

  56. eric May 20, 2015

    I like it, but I don’t love it.

  57. You wanna love it right bettor like you do then my funky money May 20, 2015

    Amazing ???????????????????? song

  58. Kitty Puurrzz May 20, 2015

    Come thru Monica… Hurry up & put this on iTunes .

  59. KMilli May 20, 2015

    She put Weezy on it to guarantee a hit this album, Stale Life sucked lol

  60. acinom May 20, 2015

    She’s Legend and nobody is f****** with her

  61. Coo May 21, 2015

    This song is ok but it wouldn’t be my lead single I had really wish she’d stay away from polo just for this album she needed a fresh sound

  62. KMilli May 21, 2015

    Each album sounds the same, I’m sure we’ll hear Missy shouting “New Monica” every other track. So predictable!

  63. Aye May 22, 2015

    This kinda sounds like her song anything to find you

  64. eh…. May 24, 2015

    Dammit…this song has been stuck in my head all weekend… I don’t think it will be a big hit (mainstream or r&b) but I think it is good enough to get ppl attention…. I think it is completely dumb of her label not to already released it for purchasing… it’s been out too long now the only ppl who are gonna buy it is her fans where she might would’ve gotten some non-fans to purchase it if it was available earlier but now everyone already has it on bootleg if they want it
