Monica Promotes "Code Red" With Medley @ Wendy Williams Show

monica wendy williams 2015

Monica's Code Red is out! I'll be picking it up and finally making good on my promise of updating her dilapidated profile. So if any of you have anything to say about her voice, leave it in the comments here, and I'll see if I can work it in.

Promoting her eighth album on The Wendy Williams Show, the Diva performed a medley ofhits. (Doth two songs maketh a "medley...?) To those wondering which is from the new LP, it was the second song, Just Right for Me. The first was of course her breakout track, Don't Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days), which was released TWENTY years ago!! ARK!>!!PGOHKDD  #Dead

Honestly, this wasn't the best of showings from Monica, with the voice sounding kind of drier than usual and (here comes everyone's favourite word(!)) pitchy. We know the Diva can sing, so I'm not bothered.

[New Music] Monica Returns With "Just Right For Me"

Monica keeps flopping on me. I'm not talking in terms of sales- though she is flopping at that too. I'm speaking on her decision to keep releasing singles that follow the formula she stumbled upon back in 2003 with the (admittedly great) So Gone.

Review: Brandy And Monica Reunite On "It All Belongs To Me" Plus First Live Performance On Leno

brandy monica 2012

The Rodney Jerkins produced smash hit, The Boy is Mine, was created the last time Divas Brandy and Monica took to the studio together way back in 1998- listen below.

At the time of the release, both singers were at the peak of their celebrity, so it was no small wonder that it was a massively successful collaboration, spending a record breaking 13 weeks atop the Billboard charts.

However, it wasn't just the combined star power that led to the success, but the quality of the song itself: a feisty battle between the two females over a single man, that played on the "rivalry" many thought existed between the pair. All played out vocally atop a synthesised harp loop and a contemporary R'n'b production, that still sounds as good today as it did over a decade ago.

Needless to say I was excited to hear what the pair would come up with when rumours surfaced they were recording together again.

Stars Pay Musical Tribute To Whitney Houston

With a Legacy as great as Whitney Houston's, it's no surprise that singers are continuing to pay tribute, many during their own shows, to the vocal genius since her untimely death. I'm sure this will be a list that grows as time progresses, but here are those I've found so far.

Please let me know of any others missed.
