With her brand new album Code Red in stores now, Monica graces the pages of UPTOWN Magazine’s first 2016 issue.
The Grammy Award winning R&B star strikes bold, beautiful confidence in the cover story photo shoot by Drexina Nelson. Looking gorgeous in each black-and-white pic, Mo dons goods by Stella McCartney, Smythe, Donna Karen, Giuseppe Zanotti and more.
In the interview feature, the mother of three opens up about her new music, marriage, motherhood, tough upbringing, early start in music, the origin of the Miss Thang title, friendship with Whitney Houston, and much more.
