She had a lot of crossover appeal but she stayed tried to herself and grew into a hood theme songstress. I do still love to hear her sing. Wish she would have stretched herself more but she has a great life and great family.
She was in a 20 yr contract lol. Hysterical
No one is checking for her.
@7:39 No... they kept renewing her contract. I'm assuming they opted NOT to renew after this last album didnt do too well.Like the first comment said, Monica def had that Whitney crossover appeal but I guess she never really wanted that for herself so she stayed true to her sound.She's still a vocal beast but her genre or rather traditional r&b sound has faded out for that trap r&b mess...People like Monica and Brandy unfortunately wont have long careers like Whitney and Patti... I mean even Whitney was struggling to sell towards the end.The industry just aint the same!
Monica can go independent and make all the money now. Smart established musicians do that ya know.
That's a blessing that she was able to have such a long career. I don't see anyone else picking her up though.
She has on about 20lbs of make up. I don't know how these chicks do it....
