Following in the footsteps of her previous albums The Makings of Me, After the Storm and The Boy is Mine, Monica's new album, Still Standing, is expected to debut high on the charts, a rep for RCA Music Group reports, citing projections based on early sales.
Monica's first single off the album, titled "Everything to Me," currently rests at No. 1 on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, and the album is projected to debut at No. 1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The album is currently No. 2 on Amazon.com and iTunes.
Along with music fans, critics have also welcomed Still Standing with a warm reception. USA Today says that the album "effectively revisits the past in a gimmick-free set of cool R&B tracks," while People magazine gave the album three out of four stars.
