Despite not delivering her long-awaited new album, ‘Trenches,’ on its original November 20-due date (as we reported here), Monica has still been hitting the promo trail in support its title track.

Better late than never, the cinematic clip has already received critical acclaim for Mo showing off her acting chops and reintroducing fans to her alter ego #Goonica.
