      It's a rumour, i don't think it's true because Keyshia recently said she would like to do a song with Mo' one day.

      Anyway i can't wait to hear her new album, the first single is produced by Missy.

        Me too, I also love the title. I hope the Keyshia collabo is true, that could be amazing!

          I really can't wait to hear her new stuff, but I still don't really like the album title - sounds like a rip off of Ashanti's Concrete Rose to me.

              Havent heard much of her, but I quite like her material

              'Before You Walked Of My Life' is a classic for me, so as the double A-side she put out on her last release (not sure if it was on her last record) but i loved the video for it

ATS was amazing, I just hope she has more tracks with this one, it sounds good already. Monica one of my fav female singers ever and Twista one of my fav rappers on one track is ENOUGH to sell me the album

                        Her first album was a real classic with top notch productions from Dallas Austin and Tim & Bob. I miss those r&b albums now with hard beats and tight melody.

                              she' one of my fav singers ever!!!!
                              after the storm is a masterpiece, the most beautiful album of 2003, and her new sound is brilliant, i love the way she changed her style since "just another girl"...
                              i hope the fourth album will be a hit like the other 3 records...
                              but it's a shame that she's a superstar in us and not in the rest of the world...

                                    Well the album actually struggled to go Platinum, I think, but it got there in the end. When the the 2nd single, "Knock Knock/Get It Off", flopped the album kinda stopped selling at about 600,000 sales but then for some reason "U Should've Known Better" started racing up the charts from out-of-nowhere like a year later. And hence the album managed to go Platinum.

                                    I've been listening to "After The Storm" a lot lately. I hope the new album is just as good, if not better!

                                                Hmmm... Not too sure about the whole crunk thing for Monica, but I'd still like to hear if she can pull it off anyway.
