According to one of my spies in the J Records mail room, the label shipped 400,000 of Monica's Still Standing CDs to stores. Yet many fans all over the country report the CD is sold out everywhere. The insider said the label is scrambling frantically to get out more of Mo's records to the stores in what's called "drop shipments."

On Tuesday, the day Still Standing dropped, over 800 fans turned out for Monica's CD signing at a DTLR store in Camp Creek (a record number for that location). 3 hours later, 300 fans were left still standing in the parking lot awaiting their turn to see Mo. She promised them she would return today (Mar. 25) to sign more CDs.

The J Records insider said Monica sold close to 100K units on the first day!! Amazingly, Monica is projected to sell 165-200K in the first week and she could give teen idol Justin Bieber a serious run for the #1 spot.

This is major because it means that J Records could have shipped Monica's CDs gold! If Monica's hard core fans can't find any CDs in the stores and they shipped 400K, the label could have shipped 500,000 easily and given Monica gold status.

The insider blamed BMG head honcho Barry Weiss for the bungled shipment error. As head of BMG, Weiss oversees J Records in addition to other labels under the BMG umbrella. The miserly Weiss controls the purse strings and he probably has no clue how devoted Monica's fans are. Even with bare minimum marketing and promotion, Mo's fans still supported her.

J Records gets an 'L' for this one.

    @sandra
    I also want to say thank you Sandra for adding Nichelle Walker to your blogroll. I remember Attrnymom once told me you don't support your readers and you just proved her wrong. I hope you guys visit and support NWmassmedia she has more than just celelb gossip she has real issues posted on her site. She also does giveaways. (I won Monica new CD this week)

    :happybirthday: Nichelle you got an early gift. :D

    I'm not gonna throw shade at J records because I don't know the deal on that but to borrow from Daisy "favor aint fair". Monica needs to keep doing her and when God wants it to happen it will no matter what Satan trys to put in your way! #TEAMMONICA :cheer1:

    Love that picture of Mo and her kids.

    Yes, there are people who love her music. Just because YOU don't doesn't mean others feel the same way. Why some of you knots keep rushing into the Monica posts to spew hate is beyond me. Bless you nonetheless.

    Shame on J Records for getting it wrong initially but props to them for stepping it up to make it right.

    Regardless of the positon, Mo will debut high next week and that's a testimony of her talent, skills and sustainability. 15 years in the game and still going strong.

    Also, the other day Terry McMillian posted a link to her Facebook & Twitter page telling her followers & fans to support my novel (I gotta make it to Heaven for going thru He'll). That made my week :D

  • speakinmymind

    sheesh! i thought blogs were for expressing opinions and everyone won't agree with each other.

    i think Monica is talented but the attitude leaves a lot to be desired. and i don't think there's any conspiracy on the part of J Records. record companies are in the business of making money and after 15 years in the business, Monica should be much further along than she is; which most likely explains the company's hesitation at sending out a shi.tload of product.

I think Monica is very talented but this CD is low quality, the songs are not what Im used to hearing from the girl....no hate...shyt thats just how da fukk I feel bout it. Celebrate her success all day long, Im glad yall backed her up, because if it weren't for yall being dedicated to her as fans she would not have sold that many cds simple as that, the music is not up to fukking par. And yall can deny that shyt all day, tombout...it takes more than one listen to like a cd, no thats the Bullshyt we've grown accustom to since artist starting pushing garbage cds and making money off of fame instead of actual talent.

    Yes, J Records didn't realize that Monica's fans have been waiting on a new album from her for a long time. They should have shipped it already gold! I like to buy CDs more than downloading. I have already pre-ordered Usher too!

    I'm so happy for Monica! She deserves this success! I love her voice and she is a great mom!

Am I rushing to get Mo’s new CD…no sorry, not hatin just need to check it out first. I did download If you were my man (hey I love Evelyn).

    @27, Tasia, yeah it may take a few listens for you to REALY get into it. I rarely love a cd after the first lisen. My fave right now is #7, Here I Am. Also, check out #9, Love All Over Me, and #3, Stay or Go.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    You don't care for "If you were my man"? I really like that one and I think it should be her next single. Jazmine Sullivan wrote that one as well. I might just be a Monica stan cuz I love her voice on anything, she can't have a bad song in my eyes lls. Just like the Gospel sing Marvin Sapp... I love that man's voice.

    LMAO I’m laughing because so many people have said the same thing. They will turn to their spouse and say I can’t believe she did that. & they’ll look at them like huh? or say to them whatever you’re reading must be good. Thanks. That really makes me because as I’ve said I was never going to release this book. I will be giving my boo some extra loving tonight thanking him for pushing me to do so

    Me and my sister’s husband are pushing her to do the same. She has now been featured in 4 anthologies, two by Zane, she writes erotica (yes, she is a big ole freak :rofl: )

    You would have to be a fool to believe that someone in the mailroom has some inside info on marketing!!!! They don't even ship the CD's from the mailroom. They come from the factory where they are pressed. This whole charade about her cd being under-shipped is b.s! She's gonna sell a hundred and change, and Bieber is gonna crush her. Then her sales are gonna drop by about 60% next week, and then all the crying about management/J records messed up will really start.....

  • Krysi J

    @krysi ppl like what they like I loved Monicas last cd makings of me I still play it a lot of ppl hated it so I am being real/honest just like those who said they didn’t like it. I missed the comment where u n others were called haters for not like Monicas new cd but I don’t agree w/that like I said ppl like who/what they like plain n simple. Different strokes/different folks. U like plies n he annoys me to know end #justanex

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    Exactly...and yea people saying their lil shyt here and there dey just ain directing it at nobody tryna avoid responses. I purchased the last cd of Monica's too, cuz I liked the material on it, loved it infact....ain nobody fukking hating, just being fukking real about shyt. And I can understand why you don't like Plies, Pliea ain for everybody, but thats not hate....I would only consider someone a hater for finding pleasure or anticipating the down fall of others THATS HATE! You think I want this gurl to fail??!! She recorded the songs not me, you get back what u put in THATS LIFE...and not just for her either ALL DEM MFs thats loosing money in their stock!

    ———————————————————

    thats what I’m talking about, people always have to call you a hater when you don’t repsond to shyt the same way they do. Hell you brought ya fukking copy, GOOD, how in the hell can I hate on someone else spending their money on something?? I can come all up and thru this MF if I want to and say what da fukk I feel its a MONICA POST. I think Monica is very talented but this CD is low quality, the songs are not what Im used to hearing from the girl….no hate…shyt thats just how da fukk I feel bout it. Celebrate her success all day long, Im glad yall backed her up, because if it weren’t for yall being dedicated to her as fans she would not have sold that many cds simple as that, the music is not up to fukking par. And yall can deny that shyt all day, tombout…it takes more than one listen to like a cd, no thats the Bullshyt we’ve grown accustom to since artist starting pushing garbage cds and making money off of fame instead of actual talent. A land where Ashanti can break record sales numbers, but Monica have to beg fans to support her…thats the TRUE state of fukking music now.

  • ShoYaRight

    @molyfe #113 ...I see you beat me to the punch! Yes, great news for the week of the album.

    @Danielle84 #115 - I like all of the songs on the album but I was just highlighting some of the best songs in my opinion for Tasia. I was never really crazy over "Betcha" aka "If U Were My Man" ever since I heard it. I'm tired of Missy yelling and banshee calling all over Monica tracks. But in the context of the cd, this uptempo is a great break from the ballads and midtempos that the rest of the album consist of. I was grooving to it this morning as I was getting ready to report to the plantation.

    all the testing, sperm collection, payment to egg donor, implantation. we went to Reproductive Biology Associates here in Atlanta. There's no guarantee that even after the process you will conceive, although there's an "insurance" you can purchase that will refund some or all of your money if the procedure doesn't yield a pregnancy.

    It was a challenging time and like a lot of you everyone was getting pregnant but me. It was so depressing and it put a big strain on my marriage.

    IVF and IUI is very expensive but at that time I had a job that paid for 6 IVF treatments...

    @Iscream I loved your book and I hope you do have a book signing in the ATL because I'm there. I have passed the book to a few friends and they loved it! One of the ladies my choose as our book of the month. Great job sista!

    My biggest fear of going to infertility clinics is them telling me I can’t have anymore children. Then they do something like invitro and my new name would be Octomom 2. I just want one more. My daughter is itching to be a big sis.
    ---------------------------------
    they won't tell you that you can't have anymore as long as you have a healthy uterus. and you can't become Octomom unless you get all the embryos implante and most doctors won't implant more than two or three. also, there's selective reduction once the embryos are implanted.

    FLo...lol usually a urologist or the dr. that does the IVF I guess u call them fertility dr.s

  • chase

    My hubby went to a urologist first to determine if he had a problem. Once that was over (took about 6 months of testing) then we went to the fertility dr. to begin the process..

    We're not "trying" but its great for future reference!

    You too??? My son asks me for a baby brother or sister just about everyday.

    But what makes u think u cant have more children? Funny you say that, Im not sure if I can either. After I had my son, his father and I tried for 6 months to get pregnant. Never happen ((thank GOD though).

    Flo, we've been trying for 5 years, that's how I know there is something wrong with either me or him. I've read that there are only 2 days out of the month that we can get pregnant. Did you know that? I didn't. :shrugs:

    no, but i read about it. after the doctor told me we only have a 10-15% chance of conceiving naturally, i haven't even thought trying to have a baby naturally. we're going to focus on adoption at this point and if it happens naturally, we'll be doubly happy having two children!

    -------------------------------

    I agree 5 years is long... My dr. had us try for a year and then we did testing for another year or so..... Then finally I got preggo in Novemeber 2006 so from August of 2004 until November of 2006 was our window of trying.

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    :yes: @ Ms.Truth. I've tried the fertility tests that you buy out the store, basal therm. I guess my next stop would be the fertility clinics.

    Thanks for the well wishes and prayers.

    I couldnt imagine. Thats kinda like my friend, she has 4 kids and is 24 years old. Everyone keeps tryin to talk her into tying her tubes, but she says "Why would I want to take away my ability to have children? There are sooo many women who cant have them, why would I do that?"

    And though I do agree she dont need anymore kids at this time, I wouldnt want nobody takin that right from me either.

    Shoooot, I'll call/email Oprah's people for you :sad:

    Flo..

    The fertility test will test you.. sorta like a pregnancy test... I think u can get them in the same section as pregnancy test..

    sorry had to have a quick meeting...anyway i haven't started anything yet but i read that OJ and green tea are supposed to help. I heard about the 2 days out the week too but unfortunately my cycle is off and i can never predict when im ovulating. sucks. but my girl recently started using the ovulation/fertility kits and limited them having sex to 5 times a month and they got pregnant 2 months later. she was also about to have the IVF done.

  • FloridaChick813

    @ chase - Thanks. Im going to Wal Mart on my lunch break. Im gonna grab one and see!

  • kimip84

    @speak...girl you have me over here in tears! i think my biggest fear is finding out that i can't. i mean i dont know and i dont want to speak it into existence but the thought has crossed my mind. we have been trying for 3 years now...not as long as some but i mean dang...and can someone give me some insight to the ovulation test b/c i tried to use them and they never had a positive read :(

  • ms.truth

    I said I was going to use one of the basal things when we got married because I want to get pregnant ASAP, if I'm not already...I have baby fever, my fiancee has baby fever and our parents have baby fever.

  • BROWNSUGAPOET

    SPeak I know I'm late but I was told I had to do the invitro and since mt hubby works at the hospital that specializes in it here in the state our porion is only 1500 and the dr said he only inplants 2 embryos cause there's a chance they could bothe split and become into 4 and week after he implants them he'll know and he said people decided then how many they want to keep

    i know a lot of older women say there's a baby in every bottle of Geritol. it has a high folic acid content which i think is why it works so well for getting pregnant. i haven't tried it...guess i'm just bummed about the whole process at this point.

    As far as the " Makings of Monica " CD - it was okay but I did not know about it until like 2 yrs after it came out....must not have been a lot of publicity for it! But I did buy it and I liked about three songs off of it.

    Now " After the Storm " , was wonderful !!! " He's My Man " I still bump that !!!!

    I have not been able to listen to " Still Standing " yet. Gonna listen to it tonight when I am at work.

    To speak and the rest of y'all wanting babies... I bequeath my fertility on you all. I am EXTREMELY fertile, but I don't think I need it anymore. The twins are getting up there in age, and no future husband or marriage in sight....sooooo... :shrugs: I wish you all the best!

    @ Speak, be careful what you wish for, my cousin boyfriend of twenty years broke up with her a couple of years ago [she was 41] about two years later she met her husband...and within like a few monthes of dating him, she was pregnant with her first child....AND THEN pregnant with the next one LITERALLY nine months later.... I say all this to say, GOD does things on his time...

    I always say that GOD HAS to be a woman and has to be comedic one too, I was sure of that once I found out I was pregnant with twins...I am an only child and I WAS very selfish, I had about as much interest in taking care of someone elses needs and wants as I did in getting shot in the head...LOL...much less two!!!!!

    I jokingly tell them all the time, I don't know who y'all pissed off in heaven to end up with me...LOL

    So many blessings to you Speak. You will get your bundle [maybe bundles] of joy.

    I was one of those 300 people left standing there on Tuesday. I drove from Kennesaw and missed one of my evening classes to see her. I got there at 4:30. I was maybe the 12th person from the door when they stopped letting people in at 8. Im glad other people will get to see her today, but unfortunately I had to go out of town. They wouldnt even let me in to buy the CD and now I cant find it. Im still really sad I missed the chance to meet my musical idol, especially since i waited so long. :-(
