  1. Ladylike

    Ladylike is the fourth and final studio album by German pop trio Monrose. It was released by Starwatch Music in association with Cheyenne Records and the Warner Music Group on 11 June 2010 in German-speaking Europe. Conceived during a hiatus which allowed each member to launch solo projects, production of the album began in mid-2009. Unlike their previous material, recording of Ladylike was not rushed, with sessions also taking place in New York City. Monrose reteamed with frequent collaborators Pete Kirtley, Tim Hawes, and Obi Mhondera to work on the album, while upcoming producers such as Tuneverse and Alexander Geringas were also consulted. Pursuing a new musical direction, Ladylike took the group's work further into the dance pop, synthpop and electronic genres, marking a departure from the contemporary R&B-influenced sound of previous projects prior to I Am in favor of a more international sound. Elaborating a sophisticated theme for the album, the band requested promotional material to depict a darker, more mature image. Ladylike was released to generally mixed reviews from music critics, many of whom praised the slower songs on the album but found the rest of the material too generic. On the charts, the album peaked at number ten on the German Albums Chart, becoming Monrose's fourth consecutive top ten album to do so. It also entered the top thirty in Austria and Switzerland, eventually selling 30,000 copies within the first five months of release. In promotion of the album, Starwatch released three singles from Ladylike, including the band's seventh top ten hit "Like a Lady" and follow-up "This Is Me". Following Monrose's announcement of their disbandment in fall 2010, album track "Breathe You In",Ladylike's third single, also served as the group's farewell single.
