"Don't Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)" is a song by American R&B singer Monica. It was written by producer Dallas Austin, Willie James Baker, Daryl Simmons, Marlon Williams and rappers LL Cool J and Chuck D for her debut studio album, Miss Thang (1995), incorporating samples of both LL Cool J's 1993 record "Back Seat (Of My Jeep)" and Public Enemy's 1987 song "Bring the Noise," also featuring elements from "You're Getting a Little too Smart" by The Detroit Emeralds.

The song was released as the album's lead single in the United States in early 1995, and eventually certified platinum by the RIAA.[1] It spent two weeks at number-one on the U.S. Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart, and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, also reaching the top ten of the singles charts in Australia and New Zealand. "Don't Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)," alongside follow-up single "Before You Walk Out of My Life," would make the singer the youngest recording artist to have two consecutive number-one hits on the Billboard R&B chart at the age of fourteen.[2]

An accompanying music video for the single, shot in black-and-white, was directed by Rich Murray and released in June 1995.[3]
