Monica Takes a Risk on ‘Code Red’ Featuring Her Daughter Laiyah and Missy Elliott [EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE]
The Polow da Don-produced song kicks off with Monica’s daughter, Laiyah, who introduces her mother as she announces a state of emergency. Monica feels the game has lost its artistry and it needs to be resuscitated.
“I swear the game might be over / Somebody give them some quotas / You can’t be sleeping on Mono / You can’t see me with no photo / I’m trying to change up the world / I’m focused on my baby girl / And even though she only 1 / She’s knows you ain’t talkin' 'bout nothing,” she sings.
Missy co-signs Monica -- she can’t listen to the radio anymore because artists don't even attempt to be creative. “This is code red / We are taking risks, we ain’t scared / We’re making hits after hits, better play it / Yo we got hits that go over your head,” she delivers.
Even if you don’t agree with their assessment of the music industry, "Code Red" will no doubt make you want head to the dance floor and dip to the beat like Missy urges you to.
Monica's forthcoming album, Code Red, which features the Lil Wayne-assisted “Just Right for Me,” is expected to drop on Dec. 18. Take a look at the cover art and track list below.

(Nov. 22), Louisville, Ky. (Nov. 23), Myrtle Beach, SC (Nov. 25) and more. To peep her full itinerary, click here.
