*New York, NY – Grammy award winning songstress, Monica reveals album cover artwork and track list for her highly anticipated eighth studio album, CODE RED, available for pre-sale on November 20 and in stores on December 18, 2015.

Fans who pre-order CODE RED will receive an instant download of her current single “Just Right For Me” featuring Lil Wayne and the album’s title track, “Code Red.”

“Each time I complete an album it’s a milestone that I in no way take lightly. CODE RED embodies my love for true music and an art form that has touched many over the years. As we move closer to its release, this cover speaks volumes as to how I feel. Empowered.  Motivated. Dedicated. I’m fully immersed in this necessary movement for R&B Music. There’s no greater feeling than doing what you love with authenticity. I give you CODE RED”

CODE RED, executive produced by Polow Da Don and Monica, is a jubilant return to form for the iconic star. The lead single, “Just Right for Me,” featuring Lil Wayne is an updated take on a Smokey Robinson and the Miracles classic (Much Better Off), and serves as a perfect introduction to the album and is a bridge between Monica’s love of classic soul music, 90’s R&B and the sound of today. Missy Elliott returns to Monica’s musical journey on the supremely matched title track, “Code Red.” The tempo driven, high energy, effervescent, and lyrically captivating record couldn’t be a more unexpected yet perfect union for these music icons whom are also true friends. Other special guests on the album include Timbaland and Akon.
