It’s been 5 years since Monica released her last album “Code Red,” now as an independent artist, the R&B icon is ready to drop her 9th studio album Trenches. Set to drop November 20th, Monica spoke a little about why she changed the album title from Chapter 23 to Trehcnes. “I’m always in the trenches to some capacity or the other, whether it be emotionally, sometimes physically—wherever my family is, that’s where I go,” said the Atlanta singer. “I’m also in the trenches of this music [industry]. I’m working hard, I’m writing a lot, I’m basically doing everything you can imagine because now I’m independently owned.”
Monica’s new album will have productions from Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo and Missy Elliot who we recently saw the two were back in the studio together.
