Biography

Grammy Award-winning and 10-million-plus selling singer, actress and entrepreneur Monica, returns to the music scene with her very personal J Records/RCA Music Group aptly titled offering, Still Standing. To define oneself as “still standing” is a bold statement, and as her album title actualizes, “whatever happens to me is just a part of my story. It doesn’t define ...

5.0 out of 5 stars The start of a promising Career 22 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have listened to the majority of the Songs on Monica's first debut, & it does not disappoint. What is even more
surprising is she was only about 14-15 in 1995, & she sounds so mature it is amazing. The in depths of the subject
matters she expresses in Songs like 'Don't Take It Personal (Just one of Them Days), With You, Before You Walk Out
of My Life, & Now I'm Gone' shows someone whom has grown, & can easily relate to the things other adult Women feel.
This is what Soul And R&B Should sound like, yet the Industry favours appearance & appeal over raw talent, & class.
If Monica is reading this, I hope she continues to make more music like this. And if the Industry is reading
this.... bring back that Soul feeling in R&B, & stop producing this Pop bs that has been going on for way too long.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MASTERPIECE IN MODERN R&B: STRONG FROM START TO FINISH 1 Aug 2002
By Knyte - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
14 year-old Monica Arnold emerged onto the urban music scene hot on the heels of her future arch-nemesis, Brandy Norwood. While Brandy's mystique was sweet, fun and innocent, Monica's voice, style and image projected a maturity that magically transcended her tender young age. Urban headz simply couldn't ignore this young lady when "Don't Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)" was released -- it masterfully wrapped LL Cool J's [then recent] "Backseat (Of My Jeep)" beat around strikingly mature subject matter for a 14-year old: PMS. Producer Dallas Austin was definitely experiencing a surge of creativity during this time period -- he had just completed duties on TLC's mega-watt 'CrazySexyCool' a year earlier. Now let's get to this album:
'Miss Thang' opens up confidently with the sassy title track, sonically reminiscent of LA-based rapper (then current) hit W.C.'s "West Up". Next up is "Don't Take It Personal" which continues to skillfully communicate the gritty brilliance of mid-90's urban music. "Like This And Like That" is a decent hip-hop infused cut (featuring a cool rap by Mr. Malik) along with the mid-90's grit of "Get Down", a solid album track. "With You" is a 'too-sensual-for-a-14-year-old' R&B track that should have been a single anyhow...it's an early highlight of the album that has never (!) been skipped in the eight years I've owned this album. We continue with "Skate", a fun jam that bounces along like kids at a roller rink; it cleverly samples "Cutie Pie" by One Way.
"Angel" is an uptempo track that also could have been a single, it reminds me of Brandy's "Baby" except this has more of an ATL (thanks to background vocals by Debra Killings) vibe to it. "Woman In Me" is a plush interlude that perfectly segues into "Tell Me If You Still Care", a stunningly on-target cover of Jam & Lewis's song performed by the S.O.S. Band. Pre-'My Way' Usher Raymond joins Monica for "Let's Straighten It Out", a bluesy duet featuring live instruments and some of the most impressive vocals either vocalist has ever laid down (for Usher, think Donny Hathaway).
"Before You Walk Out My Life" was Monica's vibrant second single, and is (to this day) a great sounding midtempo not to be missed. "Now I'm Gone" is a bittersweet ballad with a misty (yet warm) vibe to it. But it's "Why I Love You So Much" that had me floored the first time I heard it. Produced by ex-LaFace collaborator Daryl Simmons, the old Babyface sound (think 'Tender Lover-era') gets resurrected one last time for this wonderfully sincere ballad (and radio single). "Why I Love You So Much" is never *ever* skipped by this reviewer. Ever. The sheer beauty continues with "Never Can Say Goodbye" (not the Jackson 5 song), a pretty ballad that softly glides the listener back to earth after soaring among the clouds during "Why I Love You So Much"...
The "Don't Take It Personal (remix)" samples Jermaine Jackson's "Don't Take It Personal", creating an interesting mix. We end the album with "Forever Always" -- a jam featuring an acoustic guitar, delicate percussion, and trademark ATL background vocals by Debra Killings (her voice is most recognizeable on TLC songs like "Creep" and "Hat 2 Da Back"); leaving the listener ultimately satisfied. This is easily Monica's strongest album to date, and at 70 minutes long, is soooo worth your hard-earned benjamins, scrilla, fetti, pesos, greenbacks, paper...you get the picture. 'Miss Thang' is an album that Monica, Dallas Austin, Rowdy Records, Arista Records, and Clive Davis ought to be very proud of. The best (and most solid) Pop/Modern R&B album by a female recording artist in the year of 1995. Grade: A+
Best Regards,
Andrew Knyte

5.0 out of 5 stars I had to buy it again ! 7 Jun 2004
By K. L Pulliam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I love Monica's "Miss Thang" album. I first had it on cassette and played it so much that eventually you could hear both sides playing at the same time. I really wore it out ! Since then I have replaced it with the cd version of it.
Monica's mature voice at such a young age shows how truly talented and blessed she is. My favorites are "Before You Walk Out of My Life" and "Never Can Say Goodbye".
I would recommend this cd to all Monica lovers !

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT DEBUT THAT IS A MASTERPIECE 1 April 2004
By Leonard (SOUL SINGER/SONGWRITER) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is great.First lets look at her vocal skills.Monica on this album was mature and had windpipes that blew all of her competetors away,..>>>..Aaliyah..brandy and mya.This album is much more mature than what the others have put out and this is what really classifies her into the category of SUPERSTAR..Classically trained vocals polished all up and beautiful.......this is just the beginning of her career at age 14......Remakes of songs that she makes her own thats how you know a true singer...Songs that will make you say...(HOW OLD IS SHE AGAIN?)

*With You
*Angel
*Before You Walk Out My Life

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Album and A Great Voice. 29 April 2003
By Deborah A. Newland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Monica's Miss Thang is one of the best albums of the 90's.This album defines the sound of the mid 90's where baggy jeans and braids were in fashion.Unlike her teen counterparts Brandy and Aaliyah, Monica's album has more maturity and productivity.Some of my favourite songs on the album include chart topping hits like DONT TAKE IT PERSONAL (JUST ONE OF THEM DAYS),BEFORE YOU WALK OUT OF MY LIFE,LIKE THIS AND LIKE THAT AND WHY I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.The collaboration with Usher on LET'S STRAIGHTEN IT OUT takes you back to Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell days.Another favourite of mine is the remake of S.O.S Band "TELL ME IF YOU STILL CARE" which Monica puts a lot of soul in and made her own.This album is full of great songs and definitely gets a five star from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the best of her four albums (and she was only 14 when she made it) 18 Jan 2007
By Glen Zimmerman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Back in 1995, there were some high expectations of then-14-year old Monica. This album certainly meets and exceeds them. "Don't Take It Personal (Just One Of Dem Days)" is a 90s old school classic, as is the slightly uptempo ballad "Before You Walk Out Of My Life". Though not a charting hit, "Skate" is also a great song that really should be played at skating centers.
