"Still Standing" is a song by American R&B singer Monica, written by Christopher Bridges, Adonis Shropshire Bryan-Michael Cox and Monica for her sixth studio album, Still Standing (2010). Produced by Bryan-Michael Cox, it features guest vocals by her cousin and rapper Ludacris.
The record was originally intended be released as the album's lead single, with its production and release being tracked by a single episode of the reality television show format Monica: The Single on Peachtree TV. However, as the label and the singer were not in agreement with the album's title track becoming the first single Monica set up additional sessions to find a new single.
Without an official single release, the song entered the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at number 78 in the week of August 21, 2008, before sliding down the charts. In its fourth week, it rebounded from number 89 to number 74. The song reached number 65 on Billboard Digital Songs chart. It was sent to radio prior to the release of Still Standing, where it received some radio airplay.
Monica performed the song on for the national program special SOS Saving Ourselves – Help for Haiti Benefit on in early February with rapper Ludacris. It was received as one of the best performances overall that night. She performed it live on BET’s Black Girls Rock! on November 7, 2010 and The Mo'Nique Show on November 8, 2009.
