"Anything (To Find You)" wasn't working out for R&B Diva Monica Brown. So she just released a new track titled "Until It's Gone" that everyone is raving about.

Is this the hit Monica needs to regain the respect of radio?

Monica's 7th studio album, New Life, drops November 29.

    I just heard Anything for the first time a couple of days agao and I LOVED the song and the video. I'll try to remember to listen to this one when I get home and determine if once again I am going to give her my money which I keep doing even though I have been disappointed 100% of the time.

    She is too petite for such a huge one at that! Mary J Blige is another who usually dresses classy but again that darn tattoo cheapens it every time.

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    She had the respect of radio again with "Everything to Me"...b/c I traveled alot when that song/album "Still Standing" was out and it was in rotation a helleva lot of places. And it was one of her if not THE biggest hit she ever had. But in typical Mo fashion she decides to distract from the natural course of things. Have a baby, get married, etc. etc....seems like there is always something with her.

    I'm not saying these folks can't have a personal life. Not saying that. AT ALL. But don't KEEP walking away when the spotlight is on you, things are shining, and keep expecting your fans to wait around until you finish doing what you are doin. There was ALOT of hype around that last album. She had a show during the recording of that album...and then nothing really :shrug: This is a pattern with her. And I know she reads here but I think if I am not mistaken this what I just said is going to be the sentiment of most of us who are TRULY fans of Mo.

    The A&R at her label needs to be replaced promptly. Monica is the best singer in R&B, period! But the label keeps choosing the wrong songs for her. "Anything" should have been album filler. I don't know what's going on in Mo's camp. :no:

    You aint never lied. but when Keri Hilson tried to be sexy in her video with Rick Ross it was a epic fail. So that doesnt work for everybody.

  • daprinceofradio

    Monica sings Down. Wish she would showcase that every once in a while. Did yall hear her sing the National Anthem in 2003. The range she displayed acapella was impeccable! If only she would start using her range (that she's more than capable of) in her songs. She can SING! She just needs that one good BALLAD that will blow us away. Sadly, the last album i bought of hers was the The boy is mine. I did purchase 2 singles from her last album on Itunes though.

  • http://www.twitter.com/cocoabana Cocoabana

    I think Monica has a beautiful, God-given gift. My favorite was her cd w/ The boy is mine.. that cd snapped beans. I do hope she finds her footing because I agree she is one of the strongest females...

    I am so tired of hearing the 14:59ers howel at the moon.

    I hope she finds her comfort zone... I support artist who stay in his or her own lane. She is beautiful, gifted, with a strong foundation.

    I hope she listens and sticks to what works, not what's popular.

    As the tables are turning, I welcome the like of Monica, Lala, they in my opinion represent the opposite of what society has deemed the depiction of what femals should be.

    Yeah, Tamia will always have a niche as a studio singer of ballads. She'll prolly do love songs for movie tracks forever but she will never be more of a star because she isn't that talented.

    Hey, Rhianna is just more interesting. She's sexy and you just seems like she's a more fun person so you tend to listen to stuff from her because you don't know what to expect. You know EXACTLY what you are getting from Tamia.... some sort of sappy love ballad. :shrugs:

    I like her hair styles. But monica may not choose to sell her soul like a lot of others I think she is good, but in my opinion to make it to the top, it comes with a lot of extra stuff, maybe shes content, maybe greed and narcissim, just dont fit in her family life style, isnt her parents like into the church and stuff. Sometimes people dont need all that to feel like she made. Im just guessing here.

    Hey, Rhianna is just more interesting. She’s sexy and you just seems like she’s a more fun person so you tend to listen to stuff from her because you don’t know what to expect. You know EXACTLY what you are getting from Tamia…. some sort of sappy love ballad.

    I don't like Monica as an artist. Her songs always sound one organ away from being a gospel song. She's been in the business for 30 years and she still sounds the same to me.

    Nope. Not on talent alone. You have to either identify with the person in some way, disagree with something they stand for, find them attractive, etc.

    BUT it has to be MORE than just talent.

    Monica is to R and B what Bryant McKinnie is to football.....

    Natural talent and tools to be one of the best at what they do but used their talents only for access to people/status/things they might have otherwise have had to fight like regular groupies to get to.

    Her to ballers, rappers and VIP status at ATL nightclubs.

    “You think that’s soft? Or studio? You couldn’t have ever heard that girl sing live. Ever.

    ___________________________________________________________________________

    Yup. I’ve heard her live. She has come to N.O. on several occassions and each time she’s drowned out by the piano.

    **************************************

    But Man, that can happen to any artist at any show if the sound system or the mic is sub par. I walked out on a Jill Scott concert once (sorry - I know you hater her) because she didn't bring her own engineer and the sound system was garbage.

    Tamia wasn't drowned out by the instruments any of the times I saw her live. That girl can blow. But I agree - she is a balladeer.

    Right there!! That's exactly when I quit her a$$. Brandy to me is a better artist because her music was great. Nobody has harmonies like Brandy. Her last two albums were doo doo, but before that, Brandy never released an album that wasn't solid all the way through.

    Monica obviously sings $hit that either SHE likes, or she's loyal to producers who obviously aren't producing. Either way, she needs to step out of the box and put together a project to get her the recognition her voice is worthy of.

    You can't have that big ole, soulful voice and use it to sing "Sideline Ho"... WTF? That's like having Patti Labelle singing "Whip My Hair".

    I forgot Adele. Her songs are nice. She doesnt blow you away with her voice though. The singers i mentioned i think will knock your socks off if you hear them in person! I was in the audience when PATTI was on WENDY Feb 2010. So you already know Patti that's a given.Any of the artists i mentioned would have been perfect to do her tribute on the BET Awards!

    see what happens Monica when you let JD produce or exec produce any songs for you? He had her do "im too hood for you." I couldn't believe they even put that song out. It was on that 'all eyes on me' cd that kept getting pushed back. JD practically killed her career when he did the next lead single from her follow up cd. And that's when rumors started she was being dropped from the label. It was the song with them white tee guys. Sideline ho was on that cd too. Monica knew better than that.

    I think missy works for her, but all missy does is pull songs from the 70's and put lyrics to them.

  • West Coast Chick

    its ok, but the music business today is a lot more than just music, so idk if monica ever really gets back to where she was as a kid.. 2 many gimicks that are taking front row... speaking of gimicks, anyone see nikki minaj on America's next top model this week?

  • pointhimout

    everytime the beat drops, thats the song with the white tee guys. it sucked. and they had her topless on the album cover, breasts hidden under a rope. all those people associated with that project have hopefully been fired since.

    @Point the cd is called Makings of me and it was FIYAH ppl slept on that Monica cd. Every time the beat drop was supposed to just be an ATL hood single and I liked it the beat and hook were catchy.

    I like Anything to find you its a throwback to the 90s and I LOVE it. Let me listen to this new song.

    I agree the game has changed Monica could drop a single that everybody loved and still wouldn't "blow up" the way some of yall feel she should have by now.

  • alwaysnred

    I love "Anything" I jam that all the time in the car! Monica has already stated she is staying true to who she is. She is not to be a cross over artist. Monica has always been the underdog people don't expect her to sell big but look at "Still Standing" all the hassle on the sales and it was still nominated for a grammy! How many artist can come out and stay in the game for 15 years plus without taking off clothes singing about sex. Look at Patti Labelle she was always overshadowed by Diana Ross and Aretha Franklin but she stayed true to herself and one of the most respected singers in the world today!

  • molyfe

    I wish some of you would shut the hell up if you don't know the facts about this woman' career. Monica had a #1 song for 7 weeks last year. 2 hits songs from her album, 2 grammy noms, billboard award noms,she went gold in 3 weeks. Anything was going to be a hit until they took Kim off. She did not even promote it and it got to top 20. 20 million records sold world wide. Monica already blew up in the 90's and the 2000's, she went threw a lot took a break had kids. Not everybody looking to be a media whore. The woman has been working since she was 11 years old. Back to back #1's when she was thirteen. She can do what she wants at this point in her career. Clive already tried pulling the puppet strings. Her fans love this song. That"s who is important not the same people hating on every post. Someone talking about being in club all the time. When last has anyone on here seen a pick of Monica in a club?
