Biography

Grammy Award-winning and 10-million-plus selling singer, actress and entrepreneur Monica, returns to the music scene with her very personal J Records/RCA Music Group aptly titled offering, Still Standing. To define oneself as “still standing” is a bold statement, and as her album title actualizes, “whatever happens to me is just a part of my story. It doesn’t define ...

Editorial Reviews

Brandy may have scored the first hit with the infectious catfight "The Boy Is Mine," but make no mistake: Monica owns that song. In the battle of the cute teenage soul songbirds, Monica Arnold wins hands down because she can sing her ass off and because she has better songs. Monica's corner includes the vastly underrated producer Dallas Austin, who kicks in with edgy, moody cuts like "Street Symphony," a cautionary tale set to an orchestral groove, and "Ring da Bell," which plain-out flows. Unfortunately, this being the big-bucks world of '90s R&B, Monica is also saddled with de rigueur Diane Warren-David Foster exercises in ersatz soul and overwrought hokum. Why anyone would want to remake Richard Marx's "Right Here Waiting" is a mystery, but let's just say that Monica also has the smarts to cover Dorothy Moore's classic remake of the adult ballad "Misty Blue," thereby evening the score a bit. It's a tribute to Monica's voice, a womanly alto of real shading and substance, that she can transform schlock into something that comes close to emotion. All of which makes The Boy Is Mine easy on the ears and secures Monica's further ascension. --Amy Linden

After having an incredible debut album, Monica has managed to deliver an incredible follow-up. The album shows a difference in style which also adds to its appeal. her voice has grown This album earns Monica a seat in "R&B's" greatests. Highlights include "Street Symphony", "The Boy Is Mine", "The First Night", "Angel Of Mine", "Take Him Back", "Gone Be Fine", "For You I Will", and "I'll keep it to myself. I can guarantee that this album will remain in your stereo.

Monica just like Brandy had just one album behind her when she released her second album that feautures the smash hit "The Boy is Mine" and that is also the name of this album. In My oppinion the two albums have more in common then they are diffrent, so obviously I disagree with the editional reviewer that sais that Monica got better songs on her album and that she owned "The Boy is Mine" which I don' think either. Both singers were just kids when they debuted, Monica's "Miss Thang" was released in 1995, she was only 15 at the time!, Brandy's debut came one year prior but she was born in 1979, also 15 at the time. Both debuts were good, but unpolished and lacked top hits, Both second albums were mature and well produced full of memorable hits. Apart from the hit single and duet "The Boy is Mine", both had Diane Warren ballads and Monica even had Dallas Austin and Jermaine Dupri penned songs, while the majority of Brandy's songs were written by the top-writers Daniels/Jenkins/Jerkins, Not bad!. Both albums feautured covers. Brandy had "Everything I Do" and Monica had "Right Here Waiting". Both albums also song well, and apart from their duet hit single, both scored other hits on their own and both reached new heighs with their respective second albums. So, Basically they were quite alike. I think however that Monica's album has got less ballads then Brandy's if we're gonna find some diffrent trend.

"The Boy Is Mine" starts with Dallas Austin's "Street Symphony" which resembles Cat Stevens "Wild World" on the verse In My Oppinion, it's a great midtempo nonetheless. Song 2 the title track, needs no further presentation, it was a smash hit and probably the most memorable song of most singers careers. "Ring Da Bell" is another R&B midtempo, not among the best.

Once again, Monica (superfluous name Arnold), has released a batch of wonderful songs each worthy of a listen. Dragged down by poor production and promotion, however, this album never reachest its highest potential. Monica is doing her part. Now can we get some fierce production the next time. I think if Monica is to be the next Whitney Houston, they need to promote and produce her as such. On her second venture out, Monica explores more mature topics (if that is even possible for her) such as hustling ("Street Symphony"), two-timing brothas ("The Boy Is Mine"), baby-making drama ("Ring Da Bell"), rushed relations ("The First Night"), that one perfect love who has your head all messed up with one thought of their name ("Misty Blue"), that other perfect love who is just celestial ("Angel of Mine"), breaking up ("Gone Be Fine"), wanting someone but can't have cause they have someone else ("Inside"), second chances ("Take Him Back"), missing someone who is away, but you will wait forever for them ("Right Here Waiting"), the other person at the dance who you are making eye contact with ("Cross the Room"), falling in love with a friend ("I Keep It To Myself"), and the one who you would do anything for ("For You I Will"). Whoa! Monica covers it all with her honey-dipped, gospel-tinged alto voice. With gut and soul, Monica delivers like no other. Bubble gum? I think not. And nor has she ever taken that route. On her debut in 1995, Monica's Miss Thang featured some pretty heavy and risque topics. Always poised and composed, Monica is in a class of her own. Monica takes R&B to a whole new level...noone can touch her.Read more ›

Of course you know Monica from her songs like the smash hit duet w/ Brandy "The Boy Is Mine" and the smooth ballad "Angel Of Mine", but if you don't have the album, then you don't know what you are missing. Monica has a truly powerful voice and presents it nicely in "Inside", written by the 'ballad queen' Diane Warren. Other good songs are "The First Night" that deals with never giving too much on the first date, "Gone Be Fine", the hip/hop track featuring rap group Outkast, and the remake of "Right Here Waiting" featuring R&B sensation 112. The album also has the hit song from the Space Jam Soundtrack "For You I Will", also written by Diane Warren. The material is much more on the mature side and still isn't too indifferent from her debut. This album is deals with love alot and would be a good choice for anyone who knows about relationships and could relate to this well.

I've been a fan of Monica's since the mid 90's when I first heard Don't Take It Personal (Just One Of Dem Days). She has a great voice and even then I knew she'd make it big.

This album is her best I think (her follow up to this flopped) and it has some great songs on here. Apart from the obvious hits (For You I Will, The Boy Is Mine and Angel Of Mine) the other stand out songs are Right Here Waiting (with 112) and The First Night. She has a great voice and sings so well if she has the right material. Her follow up to this let her down, but if she can get great material like what's on this great cd, then she can become a major star again. This is an excellent cd that all R&B fans will love.
