TRENCHES The Album available November 20th ….. TRENCHES The single with @theneptunes & @lilbaby_1 Available NOW Link in bio

A post shared by Monica 🖤 (@monicadenise) on

Originally titled ‘Chapter 38,’ that project – launched on the back of the R&B chart-topping hit ‘Commitment’ – was revamped into ‘Trenches’ (named after its official kickoff single that can be heard by clicking here).

While to date she’s kept the new set’s tracklist under wraps, what’s for sure is The Neptunes have heavily contributed to the independent opus set to be released courtesy of her own imprint, Mondeenise Music.

The November 20 release of the new effort will bring to close a 5-year wait Monica fans have had to endure for a new body of work.  Her last LP, 2015’s ‘Code Red,’ was unwrapped the week before Christmas that year.

    Coming to SLAY. The realist out there. 25 years and still on the tip of everyone’s tongues. Y’all better get ready.

      The only thing that needs to get ready for this album is her local graveyard. The album is dead on arrival. Her career is IN the trenches. Good luck booking a stage at an awards show goonica 😂

      • Monica4Life October 16, 2020

        Why are you describing your murderess fav? Monica will forever be more relevant than that thing you stan for. Tacky ET just performed on a huge stage and b7 is still somewhere at the bottom of the charts never to be seen again. The people have spoken. She’s a has been.

    • Zion October 16, 2020

      This album’s going straight to the bottom of the trenches of the charts

    • Shayla Queen 👑 October 16, 2020

      You delusional hoee! 😂😂😂

      • Monica4Life October 16, 2020

        Your mom was delusional for not aborting you when she had the chance ugleee. However we all know you’re brain dead because she sipped Clorox cocktails while pregnant with you.

      • Shayla Queen 👑 October 16, 2020

        Judging by Monica’s face, you know for damn sho her momma tried to abort her ass but FAILED 🤣🤣🤣

    • Ms May October 16, 2020

      Bothered and broke comments. Smh.

  4. i hate whhyy n blll bitchhzzz October 16, 2020

    she is so jealous of Brandi success

    • Monica4Life October 16, 2020

      What success? Where is z7 on the charts?

  5. Kima,Keisha&Pam October 16, 2020

    & she better come SWANGING!!!!

    • Shayla Queen 👑 October 16, 2020

      The only thing SWANGING are her droopy b******

  6. #WAP October 16, 2020

    What an appropriate album title, seeing as goonica’s career has been in the trenches since 2014

  7. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(drink my diva cup ☕️) October 16, 2020

    Brandy & Monica need to release joint album and going on tour together. They are too risky doing solo again. B7, Alicia both tanked and Monica will be next.

  8. Clarkson October 16, 2020

    She ain’t been hot since the 90s. Her new song is trash lol

    • Monica4Life October 16, 2020

      And Camila Cabooty still doesn’t possess the receipts that Mo does. You stay bothered b****. Aren’t you still recovering from that lashing I gave you a while ago?

  9. I’m just saying October 16, 2020

    I think the promo for this record has been so push back. When she should’ve been release the album. Chapter 38 was a way better album title than Trenches. She could’ve did Self titled It’s misleading and the Trenches single is lackluster even with lil baby on it. I love Monica that’s why I’m so critical cause I want her to win. But her being independent and push back makes the record forgettable she should’ve capitalize right after verzuz! We need video, tracklisting, album cover and a fresh hot second single for her album to even move numbers.

    • Your Name October 16, 2020

      Why are y’all so fixated on numbers? Monica is an almost 40 year old vet. She’s only gonna sell but so much. She’s indie, and her music will get played on Urban AC and let’s not even mention how she’s an R&B artist. Let’s just hope the material is good because if Trenches is anything to go by….🥴

  10. Love Mo October 16, 2020

    And I wish she leave her hair along. Her branding is not consistent. Give us a real, soul, r&b album. And it will do well. Goonica is not what fans want. We want that after the storm meets still standing Monica

  11. Ms May October 16, 2020

    You are all pressed to hate. The same two with 14 screen names

    I digress

  12. Calvin LA October 18, 2020

    We are ready. It’s about time. While I am not a fan of Trenches, Commitment was GREAT and went number one. Monica is sure to have some bangers and ballads on there. Code Red was ok, not great. But Monica knows she has to deliver a solid record and I am trusting that will happen. I am so excited and cannot wait to hear it. She is performing tonight as well. Monica was always booked before C**** hit in case many of you forgot. But I am not arguing with no kids on the internet. Monica we ready baby!

  13. Journalist Stef Black November 8, 2020

    I’m happy for my girl Monica. Her last joint, Code Red, didn’t have a strong label push. I’m hoping Trenches will have enough push from her current label to get the sales to at least 500K. The fans will definitely go hard with promoting it throughout social media.
