Monica is 'Still Standing'

Posted by Mack of Sound-Savvy On 3:16 AM



We asked for it, we got it... Monica's putting the finishing touches on a new album due out this fall, and we're ready for her to redeem herself. The Makings of Me was largely a disappointment to Monica's longtime fans due to its lack of content, vocals and all around effort. Yet hope remains that Miss Thang can bounce back and bring it home. The first single Still Standing features fellow ATLien Ludacris, and discusses her struggles and resilience - which seems to be a resounding theme from ATL's heavy hitters. She dealt with the suicide of her ex-boyfriend Jarvis, which she discussed quite a bit on I Wrote This Song from the After The Storm album. Judging from the title of her new project, we may be in for another more personal look into the life of Monica, which could yield some hard-hitting and enjoyable content. However this first single is not strong enough to convince me that the classic Monica that I grew to love in the 90's is back. My fingers are still crossed. Check it out here...
