Akon and Monica

New Music: Monica feat. Akon - 'Hustler's Ambition'

  /  11.25.2015

Monica will release her eighth album Code Red on Dec. 18. After debuting the Missy Elliott-assisted title track, the R&B songstress and Akon come together on the tender duet “Hustler’s Ambition.” Over a stripped-down guitar instrumental, produced by Akon and Philip “Hardwork” Constable, Akon sings about being away from home while he provides for his family, while Monica prays for his safe return.

“When you wake, I’m by your side / You’ll be home in the morning,” she sings.

In addition to Akon, Code Red includes contributions from Timbaland, Polow Da Don, and Lil Wayne, who appears on the lead single “Just Right for Me.”

You can catch Monica on her “Code Red Experience” tour with Rico Love, which wraps Dec. 13 in New York.

Listen to “Hustler’s Ambition” exclusively on Rap-Up.
