Monica is back!
The R&B veteran has been steadily teasing new material during her stint on VH1’s ‘T.I & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle.’Array
One song in particular, ‘Commitment,’ has served as a focus during the show and now the track has been unwrapped.
The butter-smooth jam is the first taste of new material since Monica’s last studio album ‘Code Red’ – which was released way back in 2015.
Does she have a hit on her hands? Listen below and let us know!
Catchy, infectious, and memorable, ‘Commitment’ strikes the right chord in that it manages to be contemporary and trademark Monica at the same time.
Indeed, lyrically it’s on brand and vocally she decorates the cut with the adlibs and isms that have made her a staple in the genre.
And yet, she adapts to the “now” by refraining from blowing (like it’s known she can), instead allowing the super strong melody and narrative to carry the track. A move which, when paired with its short runtime, makes this rich in replay value on today’s Urban radio.
