Monica took part in a epic VERZUZ battle tonight with Brandy but ahead of that, she decided to drop a new single to take advantage of the conversation.
The R&B veteran enlists rap star Lil Baby on the new tune ‘Trenches’ where he contributes with two verses. “I’m watching in plain view, you caught up entangled / In a web of the world, I wish I could save you / Deep down you’re an angel, but street life, it trained you / Now listen to your girl / Don’t let the game keep playin’ you,” she sings on the catchy chorus of the Neptunes-produced tune.
“For MANY years I’ve dreamed of working with The Neptune’s,” she said on Instagram. “Admiring their ability to remain current yet timeless as well as their bond & brotherhood because loyalty is fleeting in this business !!”
2020 also marks the 25th anniversary of Monica’s debut album Miss Thang. She is currently working on her 9th studio album titled Trenches.
