Tony R. Taylor of Soul Entertainment announced the release of soul diva Ms. Monique’s sophomore album, “She Motions”. The album is the follow up to her hugely successful debut album, “Soul Session Chapter I”, and is available for purchase at CD Baby, Amazon.com, iTunes, eMusic, and other online retailers. The album was released on the Soul Entertainment label on November 6th. An album release party is planned for December 13th in Atlanta at Crossover Studios.

Originally from South Florida, Ms. Monique relocated to Atlanta in 2003 after receiving a record deal with the UK based label Serious Records, a subsidiary of Universal Records. In 2004, she met Tony R. Taylor of Soul Entertainment through a mutual friend, and the two developed an instant rapport. The culmination of their collaboration was the 2005 album, “Soul Sessions Chapter I”. Ms. Monique wrote all of the songs on album, and co-produced it with Atlanta’s highly renowned Frank McKinney. “Soul Sessions Chapter I” received critical acclaim and accolades, garnering attention from both media and fans, and winning several awards. Ms. Monique, also the leader and vocalist of the group Mo Sol, began performing nationwide extensively. In 2007, she began writing songs for “She Motions”.

Responding to how she’s different from other artists, Ms. Monique said, “I’m a very passionate vocalist and songwriter, and I believe in writing and speaking about the truth, no matter how brash it may seem at times. When I am conveying a message about something, I don’t water it down as much as some mainstream artists would because they don’t think listeners are capable of consuming something that’s so profound. My songs are about women who have been around the block a few times, and have had some life experiences and deep relationships. These women are trying to make the next walk around the block better and I am speaking out to help them. I believe in empowering women and listeners to know what their worth is and help them feel better about their situations. I want them to know that they’re not alone, and they’re not the only ones experiencing what they’re going through. I also want them to know they have a choice in what to do about it. In my music, I always give you a scenario, whether it’s about my baby’s daddy or my best friend’s troubles. But I always present a resolution as well. I’m not just a soul singer; I sing from my soul.

Critiquing the album, Paul Anderson of The Entertainment Bank said, “As a producer, I consider myself blessed when I have an opportunity to work with an artist who brings not just talent, but that rare element in their sound that some call magic. Some of you may not know the dance cut currently reissued 2013 on the Tommy Boy Silver Label, “Memories”, but I won’t forget the voice of Ms. Monique! Producers Chicco Secci, and Robbie Rivera spun gold with her talent on the South Beach and European Clubs back in the day.” He continued, “I have to give The Soul Entertainment label props for getting behind an artist who is a Soul Diva. When you hear her voice, you’re reminded of the legacy of some of the most talented artists ever known. America has found the next generation of soul superstars with Ms. Monique. I came up with CeCe Peniston, Adina Howard, and even remixed for Tina Turner, so I know the real deal when I hear it. “Finally Free” is the latest from Ms. Monique, and the song reaches out to everyone who’s stepping out of the darkness of a bad situation, and finding a better place in life and within themselves. The music production is world class, and the mix will hold its own in any dance club DJ's playlist. The entire album is great.”

“She Motions” can be purchased at Amazon.com, CD Baby, eMusic, and iTunes.

Ms. Monique has a following in Europe, Japan, Italy, and the U.S. She has graced the stage in front of presidents, governors, and a host of other notables.
