Monica Announces New ‘Code Red’ Single


Despite a solid reception from fans, Monica‘s newest album ‘Code Red’ hasn’t necessarily set the charts ablaze.

Opening at #27 on the Billboard 200 with first week sales of 33k, the numbers came as a surprise to some, yet were expected by others.

For, on the one hand, it’s arguably on-par with the sales of many recent R&B LP’s. And, given the lack of push for lead single ‘Just Right For Me’ (the video for which arrived six months after its premiere), the project’s sales could even be considered…impressive.

However, for others, selling such numbers during the holidays (a traditionally kinder retail climate) is a no-no.

Nonetheless, the Grammy winner insists “New year, New era, New plan.”

And the first order of play for 2016 is the announcement of a second single. Which track is being prepped for the full roll-out? Find out below…

The Numbers Are In: Chris Brown’s ‘Royalty’ & Monica’s ‘Code Red’ Sold…

RCA Labelmates Ring In Respectable Numbers For R&B & Exceed Predicted Sales


Christmas week 2015 saw music superstars Chris Brown & Monica go head-to-head in the name of R&B amidst a fray of the year’s top sellers (see: Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Adele).  Hoping to capitalize from the holiday rush, the RCA labelmates respectively lent their 8th official projects (‘Royalty’ and ‘Code Red‘) to much critical fanfare.

On the commercial front, however, the responses saw a wider margin of variance.  Both launched without a top-performing single on the Hot 100, the R&B sets also took a more demure route to promo. While Mo hit the streets for a 22 date Stateside tour (and sparse media stops), Brown relied on a few print features and a slew of music videos to spread awareness about his project.

Were their approaches just right or did they miss the mark?   Find out below:
