    • Lmfao_Hoe August 31, 2020

  4. #TheTruth August 31, 2020

    That beat is boring…

  5. Ish August 31, 2020

    Yassssss! Production and her chill vocals are on point! A nice chill bop. People stop being childish and or petty. You can like both artists or just one or neither, but you don’t have to tear the other down. It’s not 1998 anymore. Let it go! Excited cause everything she’s released has been on point!

  6. Pat August 31, 2020

    It’s a hard no and another flop but her tone was cute

  7. just+saying August 31, 2020

    This sounds like it should be a Queen Naija song. Or Letoya Luckett. I don’t like this for Monica.

  8. Tori August 31, 2020

    Maybe it’s the way she’s singing the song or the instrumental but this songs like a song better fit vocally and artistically fit Beyoncé. It wouldve fit perfectly as a bonus track for “BEYONCÉ” or EVERYTHING IS LOVE, but for Monica it’s terribly boring. She’s doing nothing really besides a cute cadence. No Harmonies, no adlibs, no riffs or runs, no anything. This isn’t even album track material.

  9. Jackx August 31, 2020

    Its a no for me dawg. Go back to your roots

  10. Paulo August 31, 2020

    eugh I hate knowing a song builds from a sample but not being able to tell which song is the original.

    this is cute. kinda catchy but not lead single material tho so I hope she’s saving her koins for the next one.

    but ngl I expected The Neptunes to provide her with FIRE not cuteness.

    plus, why is this not on Spotify too? her team needs to do better

  11. Mr. RCW August 31, 2020

    I’m digging this! Come through Mo!!!

  12. I said what I said August 31, 2020

    🔥 🔥🔥 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

  13. ME+YOU+US August 31, 2020

    I love Monica bt this is unoriginal & uninspiring….👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾

  14. Shayla Queen 👑 August 31, 2020

    What in the pink glitter covered gutter is this?!

  15. A Real One August 31, 2020

    Let’s start by saying that Monica this is it. This is why we love Monica. Stay true to who you are sis. The streets respect this. Her loyal base will get it. Those who lived this life will get it. Production is solid. Neptune’s did their thing. Let’s go Mo! Trenches. Hell the visuals she just released on IG is hotter than any bs videos I’ve seen released from many in this genre in a while. Welcome back Miss Thang!

  16. Moo nig August 31, 2020

    FLOP!!! DID YODELCA REALLY THINK PUTTING LIL BABY ON THIS UGLY WACK TRACK WOULD STOP IT FROM FLOPPING ??? CUZ IT WONT🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 THIS WILL FLOP HARDER THEN HARD!

    YODELCA NEEDS TO HANG IT UP!! THIS WAS JUST A MESS TO LISTEN TO, STIVK TO THE SCRIPTED REALITY SHOWS YOU FLOP YODELING HOODRAT MASTER P EXPOSED THIS DIRTY HEFFA GOOD SND WE WILL NEVA FORGET 🤣🤣🤣

  17. Interac August 31, 2020

    Song is catchy. Stop hating. That grape juice needs to do live coverage of the battle. Did y’all see the teasers they released? Monica pulled a heist and some kid went and dug up the vocal bible. 🔥 this is exciting!!!

    • #TheTruth August 31, 2020

      Disliking a song doesn’t make anyone a hater.
      We all got the right to like or not like something.

      I expect better from someone like her who’s been in the game this long.
      Sonically or vocally, this is beyond boring.

      • Isb September 1, 2020

        Artists release music for various reasons – Monica has proven she can belt. It’s the same as when Beyonce releases music like 7/11. Let people just have a bop or something that hits hard. It’s okay to not sing your face off every record. You’re entitled to opinion but just feels like everyone is being so critical for no real reason.

  18. #WAP August 31, 2020

    This rabbit toothed 🐰 b_tch is still trying with this SoundCloud album? 🤣😂 Commitment came out two years ago hood rat!

  19. #WAP August 31, 2020

    The comments are sending me and confirm that Monica is STILL in brandys shadow 🤣😂😂🤣

    • Bamaboifresh September 4, 2020

      I’m sorry did Baby Momma do something? Has Borderline yet? Then stop comparing and put that energy into getting your fave a hit. Like it or not it’s been almost 20 years sine Brandy had one by herself. Now have several seats.

  20. Lmfao_Hoe August 31, 2020

    I feel as though just as it is with Jesse J and a few others. These women can sing without a doubt but strongly lack the right “SONG” materials for a body of art. Monica baby back to the drawing board.

    • Ish September 1, 2020

      Commitment and me+you were jams! This is a bop that’s consistent sonically with a little swag. Stop reaching please. We all were scratching our heads when Brandy released baby mama but the album delivered. Let’s lose the negative energy – 2020 has brought enough of that

  21. Wapping August 31, 2020

    This would have been a smart move if the song was good.

    Why is everyone trying very hard to sound now and in the process the lose everything originality.

    Bad song

  22. Eric August 31, 2020

    I like it on first listen. Would like it even more without Lil Baby who added nothing.

  23. Chez August 31, 2020

    This ain’t it Mo.

    Very boring and uninspiring. Back to the drawing board you go sis.

    I haven’t liked anything she released since “Still Standing”.

    Maybe she should re-release “Angel Of Mine”…:

  24. Zo August 31, 2020

    I love this track.stop hating on her.lil baby and monica from beginning till end .niceeeeeee.she had a number 1 hit last yr haters .still charting.

  25. G-bby August 31, 2020

    It’s an alright song. If we’re being 100% honest, I don’t have to hear it ever again.

    Now “Commitment” … that was a song!

  26. IAMME September 1, 2020

    THIS IS SOOO DOPE.

  27. Zarin September 1, 2020

    Don’t like it. It goes nowhere. Sounds very empty. Lil Baby didn’t give her his best feature. I guess the $$$ wasn’t big enough. Monica needs some new vocal producers to push her sound.

  28. Alex September 7, 2020

    This song is fire. I love brandy and Monica. They both have their own styles. Monica keep doing you boo. I can’t wait to hear what else she coming with.
