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 ...

2012 release from the multi-platinum, Grammy Award winning recording artist. Producers joining her in the studio on the project include Jermaine Dupri, Bryan Cox, Pop & Oak, Salaam Remi, Polow Da Don, Lamb and Missy Elliott. After the successes of last year's Still Standing and her BET reality show of the same name, The First Lady of Atlanta has continued on a whirlwind path this year that saw her contributing her talents as a guest mentor alongside Cee Lo Green on NBC's breakout reality music competition series The Voice, all the while completing work on her own new album.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Life + New Album = Same Classic Sound! April 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Simply put: Monica is one of the top vocalists in the industry. PERIOD. She has excelled over the years to a caliber of style that is truly what we can all characterize as classic. It's so important to support voices like Monica's and those of her genre mates. Sadly, they don't get the credit they deserve and are deemed underrated; this should not be the case and we have the power to change that! Real R&B (Soul Music) is what artists like Monica, Faith Evans, Kelly Price, Tyrese, John Legend, Ledisi, Fantasia, Anthony Hamilton, Usher, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton, R. Kelly, Jaheim, Musiq Soulchild, Avant (just to name a few), give to us in addition to our soul music legends of the past that include Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Gladys Knight, Whitney Houston, Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, etcetera.

WE MUST PRESERVE OUR MUSIC BY SUPPORTING REAL RHYTHM & BLUES SOUNDS, IT'S REAL MUSIC!

Monica's growth as an artist shows on her latest album release entitled: `New Life,' she's an R&B veteran. Monica seems to be justifiably happier now in her personal and professional life. The `New Life' album is evidence of this because she sings volumes about how she has withstood the dramas of yesterday and transcended into her `New Life' (hence the title of the album).

Some of my favorite tracks from the album are...

*Anything (To Find You) featuring Rick Ross
-This song is featured only on the Deluxe Version of the Album.
*It All Belongs To Me Duet with Brandy
-Monica and Brandy make history once again with a nice duet; glad to see them back together again!
*Until It's Gone
-Beautiful song, powerful lesson!
*Time To Move On
-THIS IS DEFINITELY THE POWER BALLAD OF THE ALBUM! EXCELLENT TRACK!

3.0 out of 5 stars BlackAmarillo.com Review April 15, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Monica "New Life" is her 7th studio project and a testimony about her new beginning and life as Monica Denise Brown who married NBA star of the Phoenix Suns Shannon Brown.

"New Life" is indeed different from her last 2 projects "Still Standing" & "The Makings Of Me". Uptempo songs are virtually non-existent majority of the project are slow and melodic with an old school feel. Her vocals are incredible and lyrically sound as she expresses her hurt and pain throughout her past as you will hear on "It All Belongs to Me", "Big Mistake", "Until Its Gone", "Time To Move On" & "Breathe"-Deluxe Version

Actually it reminds me of Mary J. Blige "My Life II" which is ironic since Mary J. Blige is on the "Intro" to whom Monica is talking to over the telephone but Mary & Monica are both known as heart felt R&B/Soul/Gospel singers that put so much soul & emotions into their songs which makes them the artists they are today but just like Mary J. Blige "My Life II" I had to do the exact same for Monica "New Life" and that was to listen to it over and over again because listening to it for the first time it didn't captivate me but after the third & fourth listen it began to grow on me but overall I think it's good listening project which shows Monica's growth musically but it is a different flavor that NOT everyone (including me) will relate but will to those who are musically mature & diverse.

My personal opinion would be to invest a few more dollars and get the Deluxe version which has 4 extra tracks but that's ONLY if you are feeling the "New Life" project. I usually don't do this but I'm going to break each song down and give you my HONEST opinion on what I think. The "Intro" and "Outro" wont be included.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monica's Voice Never Disappoints April 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Since Monica debuted on the R&B scene in 1995, her voice has never disappointed. Even if Monica recorded one of the worst songs ever written, by the time you get to the end of that Horrible record you would not be able to criticize her voice. To go along with her voice, Monica is a pro at delivering a story which is what the true essence of R&B is all about. Delivering a message, story, and doing it with soul. "New Life" stays true to that. The album highlights her past troubles, while embracing her new blessings. Monica serves up both songs recorded about her happier place, and songs recorded about her darker times understanding that her fans all over the globe can relate to both.

STAND OUT TRACKS
"Man Who Has Everything"
"Biggest Mistake"
"Cry" - (In my opinion the best song on the album.)
"Time To Move On"
"Amazing"
"Until It's Gone"
"It All Belongs To Me"
"Catch Me"

A lot of people have been saying the album is the same old Monica, or predictable, but that's the essence of a true artist. Monica does not switch lanes because it may be in style. Monica did not dye her hair Pink and do a rock inspired record because that's whats being played on the Radio. What Monica did was continue to do the music she loves, the music her fans love, and whats true in her heart.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what i expected December 24, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
This album was okay, not really feeling it. It got old so quick. It sounds like the last two albums, which sounds better then this one. Monica needs to let go of r&b and sing gospel. That's it. This album sounds too much like... well... I'm not sure, I guess all the rest. Washed up!
