“Friends” interpolates Patti LaBelle’s “Somebody Loves You Baby (You Know Who It Is)” and was first teased during her acoustic Tiny Desk performance. It’s the third single from Monica’s upcoming R&B album, Trenches, slated to arrive this Fall under her imprint MonDeenise Music Inc.
23 years since the release of Ginuwine “ain’t none of your friends business” Monica is reminding us of just how important them words were.
It seems that the teen R&B stars of the ’90s have all decided that 2022 is their time to shine. Brandy and Usher each managed to creep back onto our screens last month with stellar performances. And so did Miss Thang herself Monica, who wowed with a Tiny Desk (Home) Concert performance of her own. She is ready to capitalize on that momentum by releasing her newest single “Friends.”
