Monica Previews Her ‘Code Red’ Album
Monica is back and in a big way! The talented ATL beauty revealed nearly a dozen tracks from her upcoming Fall 2015 RCA records release ‘Code Red’ at an intimate listening session held at Patchwerk Studio in Atlanta.
A select group of Atlanta tastemakers and media were treated to tracks from her new album, which was executive produced by Monica’s accomplished cousin Polow Da Don who was also in attendance.
Guests noshed on light bites and cocktails sponsored by Avion Tequila while listening to the new “Opera Noir” sound Monica says Polow and Timbaland crafted especially for her latest project. Husband Shannon Brown stood nearby to support his wife as she told guests how great it is to be able to talk about being in love while in it.
Among Bossip’s favorite tracks are “Code Red” which features Missy Elliott (and Mo’s young daughter Laiyah), a duet with Timbaland titled “Love Just Ain’t Enough,” the extremely catchy “All Men Lie” and the Akon assisted “Hustler’s Ambition.”
While the uptempo tracks had the studio audience nodding along, Monica still showcased powerhouse vocals on several ballads including “Ocean of Tears,” “Anchor” and “I Miss Music.” Producers in addition to Tim and Polow include Hard Work, Danja, Pop&Oak and newcomer J’Ozzy.
Atlanta notables Young Jeezy, stylist Goche and Hannah Kang stopped by to support.
