New Music: Monica – ‘Until It’s Gone’

Until It's Gone

Monica rides the ups and downs of love. After searching for her man on the jubilant “Anything (To Find You),” the newly married songstress sings a sad love song on “Until It’s Gone,” the latest offering from her upcoming album New Life, due November 29.

“One thing that I know for sure is you gon’ miss me when I go/ And it’s gon’ hurt when you’re all alone,” sings Monica on the piano ballad that tugs at the heartstrings. “I guess it’s true what people say that you never know what you have until it’s gone.”

    So, she pushed it back AGAIN? Hope it’s to go talk some sense into Ms. Wallace for the album version…

    Also hope Jazmine Sullivan gets back from her break soon…it’s been nine months-if my hunch about it is true, it should be ending really soon. Hope we get another “Everything to Me” there…

    Why do people always find fault in an Artist’s Work… For One, the label picks the songs…not Monica.. the producers produce…

    @Poet Reggie, You couldn’t have said it better. And folks act like their favorite artist’s songs aren’t heavily sampled.

    FOR ALL THOSE WHO THINK THE SONG IS BORING OR WACK — YOU PEOPLE MUST BE 12 AND 13 YEARS OLD AND DO NOT KNOW A THING OR TWO ABOUT LOVE—–
    IF YOU DID YOU WOULD BE ABLE TO RELATE—
    HANDS DOWN THIS IS GREAT MUSIC—– SO THERE ARE NO QUESTIONS THERE– AND AS FOR THE SINGING MO ALWAYS DELIVERS ——- I AM SO HYPED FOR “NEW LIFE” AND I LOVE THIS SONG TO DEF— CLASSIC MONICA— SHE IS ABOUT TO CHANGE THE FACE OF R&B THIS ERA

    Just saying !!!! Why did we ask for Monica to go back to ballads i need at least a few uptempo songs please….

    [Reply]

  30. Heavy Metal Lover

    I like it, it’s pretty typical Monica. But I still really like it, and to the ppl saying why she keeps pushing her album back, ummm, at the end of the last year, Monica even her sad her album was going to have a October/November release date. It was originally going to come out on 10/24 but I am pretty sure her label doesn’t want her to compete to Drake, but November 29 is a good date because it’s the main holiday season and that’ll give her 2 months to promote the album and for Anything (To Find You) and I am pretty sure Until it’s Gone is the 2nd single, to impact the charts.

    Monica girl I LOVE the hell out of you. U always know how to hit home with your R&B cuts. Thanks for keeping R&B music alive and not going astray. Some say she plays it safe but i like that she doesnt conform to industry standards. If everyone is going in the same direction it gets disappointing. Monica thank u and I highly anticipating this album November 29th.

  34. R&b-lover

    okay now this is what we want Monica. nevermind what people say about u sticking to your R&B roots. This is a breathe of fresh air from all this electro, pop dance crace we have out now. I appreciate our black artists who are not allowing the industry to change their sound just to appeal to people who otherwise dont appreciate our music. LOVE IT MONICA!!! THANKS!!

    I love it! Great job Monica! Can’t wait to hear the new album!

  36. yoo

    i love soul music and melodies but this song doesnt do it 4 me. But im sure the rest of the album will be solid. Although Monica plays it safe most of the time I still would like her use more instruments in her music. We all know she can sing her ass off but i would love to hear her do a retro ballad kind of like J. Sullivan’s “Excuse Me”

    What does this sample, I know the melodies so well. It’s a nice song, but it sounds unfinished.

    I want this whole album to do what The Breakthrough did for Mary J. I wish I could handle this project. I want songs like this also new jack songs like Anything (To Find You)I want a gospel closer with MaryMary maybe a female duet with Jazmine or Mary and a male Duet with Lyfe Jennings not Trey!!!!!!

    THE MALEZ Reply:

    @Cory, Yes!! I really want this 2 do what the breakthrough did 4 Mary!!! Monica deserves the up most success and its about time…

    [Reply]

    yoo Reply:

    @THE MALEZ, honestly i think “still standing” was Monica’s relation to “The Breakthrough”. Much like Mary “Love and Life” no one was checking for monica after “The Makings of Me”. Mary became relevant again after the breakthrough came out just like monica got back her spot when everything to me was released. i just hope monica comes hard and makes material thats a little more interesting. Remember Be Without You was one of mary’s biggest hits and monica has yet to produce a single of that stature from this new album.

    @Poet Reggie,

    The song doesn’t possess a shred of originality.
    That’s the problem with contemporary R & B– there’s no innovation or freshness. Stop pretending that there is.

    [Reply]

    Fa Reply:

    @Luther, throughout her career and especially on the grammy nominated last album it was obvious that she always paid homage to classic soul and R&b…If you believe that every album has to be different to be good you tell me that SADE, VANDROSS,HUSTON, MAXWELL and so many other amazing artists are not worth supporting! Considering the trash that is played on todays radio I believe every one of us should buy Monica albums – in triple copies!
    Besides, can you tell me who you think is innovative enough to make it into your music collection?
    Thanks

    [Reply]

    yoo Reply:

    @Fa, honestly you cant compare monica’s career to maxwell’s. Maxwells has never made snap music like “Everytime the Beat Drops” and his career before his latest album was all neo-soul. Blacksummersnights was an album that TRULY sounded like nothing that was out during the time. This new song from Monica sounds like a 2nd rate verion of shoulda known better.

    Amy Winehouse made it to my music collection and she was an artist that truly made an album that was 100% authentic.
