New Song: Monica – ‘Commitment’

Published: Saturday 12th Jan 2019 by Sam

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.

    It’s like the old times, but the new times.

    Thank god she’s back as I think I’ll throw myself off a cliff If this repetitive rap keeps coming out. After rnb/dance I’d given up thinking music had lost its depth then rap came. Niki was great and now…….

    Finally. Just like I suspected.. the song is FIRE! MONICA never disappoints (to me), however you cannot deny that this is a GREAT song. The message, melody, lyrics, background vocals, etc. Monica reminds us why artists should not chase trends and stick to what they know best, being themselves. The song has been on repeat since she dropped it. Top 5 on Itunes R&B Charts as of this morning. People are hungry for real music and not this gibberish foolishness labels have been trying to shove down our throats. Thanks Monica…..#Commitment

      Agreed!

  9. Rcw January 12, 2019

    Monica, why you do us like that? You killed with them vocals…it was worth the wait! I’m super excited for this error or Mo! 🔥🔥🔥🔥

  11. Kim January 12, 2019

  12. Xoxo January 12, 2019

  13. OurP January 12, 2019

    Vocals Yes but shes stuck in 2006 with that rnb sound do something new freash makes me wanna fall asleep 🙈🙈

    • Rcw January 12, 2019

      You sound a fool

    • thanosoftitan January 12, 2019

      I agree that the voice is everything, which is not surprising. Monica’s vocals have always been a gift.

      But I’m not feeling the song itself. Maybe it’ll grow on me, but I need more from Monica.

  14. MB January 12, 2019

    Song is too short

    • Kim,Keisha&Pam January 12, 2019

      I said the same thing, but I still like it. A dope feature would’ve been cute.

  15. Maxie Blk January 12, 2019

    She got a hit!☝🏾

  16. BeyGr8 January 12, 2019

    This will probably be a hit on the Urban AC stations. It’s decent, typical Monica.

  17. Linette R Swint January 12, 2019

    I like.

  18. Kim,Keisha&Pam January 12, 2019

    Currently #4 on R&B iTunes & #80 overall. As a Monica STAN since the 90s, I can honestly say I’m proud. Keep in mind, she’s independent!

  19. Olusheyi January 12, 2019

  20. Ryanlhigh January 13, 2019
