16 Songs, 56 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

It's hard to believe it's been almost 20 years since Monica hit the scene with her debut album, Miss Thang, after being discovered by Dallas Austin. Since then, she's released several successful albums, had some huge singles (such as "The Boy Is Mine" and "Still Standing"), won a GRAMMY® Award, and starred in TV shows and movies. New Life is her seventh full-length, which finds her working with super-producers like Polow da Don, Saleem Remi, Jermaine Dupri, Missy Elliott, and Bryan-Michael Cox, among others. Her strong vocal talents still shine bright, while most of the songs here focus on either true love ("Amazing," "Without You," "Take a Chance") or the struggle with breakup and betrayal ("It All Belongs to Me," "Big Mistake," "Time to Move On"). It's a solid album from one of this generation's most popular R&B superstars, with strong features from Wale and Brandy. Don't miss the soulful "Cry" or the reggae-tinged "Man Who Has Everything."
