‘There’s always room for us to work with each other…always!’
Exciting words lifted from a recent interview with R&B veteran Monica when quizzed on the status of her next album, the follow-up to 2015’s ‘Code Red.’
Name-dropping the likes of Missy Elliott, Polow Da Don, Dallas Austin, Pharrell Williams, and Timbaland as ‘wish-list contributors’ for what will come as her 9th studio effort, the Grammy-winner recently took to our friends at Essence to indicate she is also looking for up-and-coming creators to lend their hand in crafting her new music as evidenced by her ‘Drop the Beat’ songwriter/producer contest (click here for more details).
As she readies the new-new, the songstress was also quizzed on her iconic duet with Brandy, ‘The Boy Is Mine,’ as it celebrates its 20th anniversary in the coming months. Despite what many have perceived as an ongoing feud between them (click here to read more on that), Mo had nothing but glowing things to say about the ‘Full Moon’ beauty and even suggested the two could work together again if given the opportunity.
