Monica hasn't released a new album since 2012, but now the wife and mother of three is ready to return to music industry and this time around, the ESSENCE Fest alum is not playing any games.
She recently announced the new title of her eigth studio album, Code Red, on social media. Then, on Monday, Power 106 personalities known as The LA Leakers released her new single featuring Lil' Wayne. The hard-hitting, hip hop fused song was produced by Polow Da Don and is sure to be a summer hit. In it, Mrs. Shannon Brown sings about the unconditional love she has for her NBA star husband. Her voice is just as strong as the last time we heard it and though the official single has yet to be released, we wanted our ESSENCE readers to hear it as soon as we heard the news.
Listen to the full song (at the 5 minute mark) in the Soundcloud link below.
Plus, if you want daily doses of overwhelming cuteness, follow Monica on Instagram. She often posts hilarious videos of her three adorable kids, Rock, Romelo and Laiyah. The video below shows her little girl is a chip off the old block.
