Listen To Monica Or Die!

If there's one lesson to take from Monica's latest video, it's that you should always follow her advice or end up in a bodybag. The lead actress in "Until It's Gone" makes the mistake of ignoring the R&B diva's sage words and let's just say the poor bitch has one of dem days and then some. The clip is a bit melodramatic - my favourite part is when our ill-fated heroine sadly declares "Monica told me he would never change!" in a voiceover - but I love it. A good sob story never goes out of fashion and the concept gives a whole new meaning to the lyrics. "Until It's Gone" is the lead single from Monica's soon-to-be-released seventh studio album and it will probably be ignored outside America like everything else she has released since "Angel Of Mine" but the rich man's Brandy still does it for me. I love her voice, the fact that her hair hasn't changed since 1995 and her non-stop tweeting about Jesus. Watch in amazement as the wisest woman in R&B wipes the floor with your fave's wig. Don't take it personal.

Fuck I love me some Monica! That voice never gets old to my ears. I don't mind this song but the 90s hip hop throwback she was swinging with 'Anything (To Find You)' was sublime!

I thought I was watching a community service announcement.

Monica has a wonderful voice..I have always loved it...the unfortunate thing here is the terrible song writing

In retrospect, I think Monica's advice should have been - wear a seat belt, bitch!

Wouldn't a Dave Aude mix of this sound amazing? See "Where You At" by JHud... I'll pay Dave's fee myself to make it happen

That's a great idea! I'd love a completely inappropriate dance remix of Monica's funeral anthem.
