Overview

Monica had signed to Arista's Rowdy imprint several years prior to this release, so she had ample time to ensure her debut would be nothing short of successful. The album focuses on hip-hop and contemporary urban cuts, including a pair of R&B chart-toppers. The first is "Don't Take It Personal," also a massive pop hit, propelled by a heavy bottom bass with Monica's indelible vocals ringing as she embraces an introspective lyric. The second, "Before You Walk Out of My Life," is a bittersweet lyric with unwavering vocals. "Like This and Like That" has that pocket beat; the song's flow is dictated by Monica's vocal chorus and an animated rap by Mr. Malik. Monica gives her own rendition on several numbers; while they all are plausible, the blues number "Let's Straighten It Out" is the most engaging, as she shares vocal duties with Usher. In spite of her youthful age, Monica conveys a surprisingly mature sound.

I think the title is good because it fit her becase she was young, and in her song's she sounded like she was older, and she look older to Iam not sure if she was 16,17 but I know she was young and the reason why I said I think that the title fit her because in the video she act like she was older and that why I say the title Miss Thag fit her.

Monica debuted as a "voice to be reckoned with". She has the vocals, the looks, and need I say, the attitude that puts her in the rankings with top divas. Theres definitely great work in the future for this artist. I applaud this effort, and encourage many more.
