Monica - Once In A Lifetime

Posted 7 years ago
Tags: Monica
Producer:
Jayo Ferrari
Album:
Still Standing

Back in August of ‘08, Monica released what she hoped would be her comeback single, Still Standing (also the title track off her forthcoming sixth album).  Despite a guest verse by Ludacris and even a VH1 show promoting the record, J Records ultimately decided that its over-the-top style wasn’t fitting for her return to the scene, and thus the singer headed back to the studio for further brainstorming/recording.  Fast-forward eight months, and the Booth is proud to present the official first single. Once In A Lifetime finds Mo pleading for her true love to return over a smooth piano beat by Jayo Ferrari.  Complete with the mushy R&B sound we know and love, the record may remind some of Mary J. Blige‘s 2005 hit, Be Without You.  Expect plenty more crowd-pleasing slow jams on Still Standing, which has yet to receive a solid release date from J Records.
