Real stans only.

Monica is amazing. It’s as simple as that. Ever since the release of her first album, Miss Thang, she’s been slaying our ears and our hearts with her incredible music.

Tomorrow, she celebrates a huge milestone—her 35th birthday. In honor of this special occasion, here are some of Monica’s unreleased songs, that you’ll soon discover are pure gems in their own right. If you’re in love with some of her greatest hits such as “Why I Love You So Much” and “Angel of Mine,” you’ll definitely love these as well. We’re not sure why they weren’t released, but as long as we can still hear them, it’s all good.

    Another great track, Monica’s voice is once again perfection as she tells her man that haters of their relationship can swerve out their business.

    A slightly faster tempo that her usual songs, the soulstress sings about unexpectedly falling hard for someone. Haven’t we all?

  9. “Street Butterfly”

    She’s been through a lot and seen a lot of things growing up in the hood. That’s why she explains being “so hard, so pretty.”

  10. “Why Lie?”

  11. “You Chose Me”

    Thankful for finding such a great guy, she’s sings about her love and appreciate for the new love of her life.
