Monica And Her Song About Her Departed Boyfriend

Monica opened up recently and revealed that a cut on her new LP ‘All Eyes On Me’ called ‘I Wrote This Song’ is about her deceased boyfriend.

It’s, in essence, a very personal track that deals with her boyfriend who committed suicide in her presence. “It took a lot of courage for me to write that song in particular” she said.

“It’s about my first love who committed suicide and the song was my way of sharing the intimate situation between us. Some days, when I think about what happened, I cry.”

Ending, she said “Writing the song was like a healing for me. I knew that if I could write about that, I could write about anything.”

All Eyez On Monica

R&B singer and possibly Brandy’s rival (it’s what I think), Monica, has just finished wrapping up work on her upcoming third LP set. Apparently, after agonizing over coming up with a proper name for her new album, she’s decided on just calling it ‘Monica’.

In a statement released on the 27th of June, she describes her new material as a “coming of age” offering that she co-wrote, saying “I’ve never had a self-titled album before and since I co-wrote the entire thing, what better timing for one?”.

The new album, due out in shops come 20th of August, is backed by the people of J Records. They’re the people who gave us Alicia Keys, Angie Stone, Busta Rhymes and more.

The first single from the album, ‘All Eyez on Me’, which features part of Michael Jackson’s ‘Pretty Young Thing’, is already playing at R&B radio stations. Other songs on the album are ‘Ain’t Gonna Cry No More’, ‘Breaks My Heart’, ‘Down 4 Whateva’, ‘Searchin”, ‘U Should’ve Known’, ‘I Wrote This Song’, ‘If U Were the Girl’ and more.

‘Monica’ follows 1998’s ‘The Boy is Mine’, featuring the No. 1 hit duet with Brandy on the title track, and 1995’s ‘Miss Thang’.
