From the moment I heard the single Everything to Me I knew Monica had a hit album on her hands. Everything is produced by Missy Elliott and samples classic Deniece Williams song entitled Silly. Most artist are not even worthy to be mentioned in the same sentence as Deniece but Monica shows she is more than qualified to do it justice.

This album caught me a tad off guard. I expected to like it, obviously, I didn’t expect to love it completely. This album has a smooth tempo vibe overall. One you can enjoy over candlelight dinner with that special someone or alone in a lavender infused bubble bath with a glass of wine.

This album hits on almost every possible relationship angle from a woman’s point of view. The good, the bad and the utterly incredible. I found myself with an unusual dilemma writing this review-trying to find my favorite songs. For arguments sake I’d say my top three faves are One in a Lifetime, Superman and Love All Over Me

This album is currently in store and definitely worth the purchase. From beginning to end this album hits all the right notes. Glad to see that even through all the things Miss Thang has been through over the years she is Still Standing.
