iTunes Review

GRAMMY®-winning R&B vet Monica has seen plenty of change but always manages to keep up, injecting the expressiveness of classic soul into distinctly modern contexts. Opening with a Missy Elliott collaboration slamming the conventions of modern radio (“Code Red”), her eighth album walks the line between playing the game and reinventing it, anchored by '90s-style ballads (the Akon-assisted “Hustler’s Ambition”) and collaborations with Lil Wayne (“Just Right for Me”) and Timbaland (“All Men Lie”) that sound current without pandering—and classic without feeling nostalgic.

I’m done.

I’ve been waiting for Monica to grow up. Monica is one of the greatest R&B singers of the past 25 years. Her vocals are awesome. It’s just that the material that she chooses is horrible. She’s 35 years old but insists on singing tepid bullsh*t like, “Hustler’s Ambition”, “Suga” and “Saints & Sinners”. The most startling, ironic conceit is that this album is supposed to shed light on the fact that R&B is in a state of distress, when her music is part of the problem! I was flabbergasted that she would sing “I Miss Music” because her new album doesn’t do anything to right the musical missteps that she has herself made in recent years. She hasn’t grown or matured and this is the reason that I’ve not purchased a full Monica album since “The Makings of Me”. Truth be told, I should have stopped at “After the Storm”. Monica, PLEASE call Babyface, Diane Warren or even Rodney Jerkins. Tell Timbaland to beat it. Tell Akon that he can go. Focus more on songs like “Deep” and “I Know”. Ballads. YES. Vocals. YES. SING!

Dope Cover! Clean, Street Chic!!!

Monica is truly gifted!! She's giving us 14 records on #CodeRed; this is the MOST shes given us on the standard version besides on her '95 effort #MissThang!! So it's a win win!! I know they deluxe will be a lil more heavier! Thanks to all for contributing to Code Red!! Waiting for the instore physical release.

I tried

Monica needs to go back to the drawing board. This album is trash. If this was her attempt to bring back r&b then she failed miserably.

Her second album, also titled The Boy Is Mine, was released in July 1998. She scored a few more chart successes through the following spring,...
