Editorial Reviews

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.

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!

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.

I have been a Monica fan for a LONG time (since the beginning)- I pre-ordered this cd b/c I was SO excited- HOWEVER there are only a couple songs I REALLY love (one being the single). Amazon shipped it FAST (I got it release day), but i'm not really happy with it. I am a ballad girl by heart and I feel Monica's vocal abilities are endless- I just am not a fan of the song choices for this album... It's ok.. my opinion is it could be a bit better.. I STILL love her though~ and will ALWAYS be a supporter

I've been a fan of Monica's since the beginning of her career. I fell in love with her voice back then and admire the fact that she has stayed true to who she is vocally & hasn't chased trends. This album has grown on me over time as I've listened to it and I think it was constructed with her fans in mind because Monica's vocals are truly center stage and it seems that they tried to put together an album to feature her voice moreso than beats or flashy production; there are no gimmicks, hooky songs or production trickery on this album which allowed her voice to shine.

My favorite tracks are:

CRY - co-written by Jazmine Sullivan who also sang back-up
TIME TO MOVE ON - has an old school '70's vibe
MAN WHO HAS EVERYTHING - like the light reggae touch (mid tempo track)
WITHOUT YOU - love her hitting her upper register in the pre-chorus of the song
BREATHE - stripped down ballad
IN 3D - melodic ballad
CATCH ME - love the lyrics on this melodic mid tempo track
ANYTHING (TO FIND YOU) f/Rick Ross - a quicker paced mid tempo track that I like the more I hear it
UNTIL IT'S GONE - like the reworking of the sample used

I've always been a Fan of Monicas Music, I Liked her when she was down & not tryin to be what others wanted her to be and doing things in her own voice & never strayin from her own sound and Look not sell'n sex like most RnB singers do..I Love the track Feat. Brandy but it was clear that ya voice soared way over Brandys not knockin her voice but he only thing she gives me is the lil yodle type deal and that doesn't work for most Rnb soul singers....Take a Chance Feat., Wale is Hott also im glad like Beyonce's music I can also listen to this cd (Deluxe Edition)kinda sad that Lil Kim couldn't be on the track that You did with Rick Ross but it is what it is...I actually liked that version better but like I said ya did ya thanng MOnica!! NOt mad @ All Can't wait to hear more & see more of ya Live performances cuz I only dig singers who can actually sing live!!.....Yay & Congratz On ya Marriage & ya Children...1 Luv Neiltwon...
