Well that was quick. Less than two days after announcing her ‘New Life’ album would be “restructured” and “delayed,” Monica has decided to unveil not only the project’s new release date, but its cover as well.
Blaming the album’s postponement on the shake-up at RCA and the closing down of her longtime label, J Records, Monica said she chose February 21, 2012 as the new release date so she and RCA could “rethink the album’s entire movement.”
Part of that movement will reportedly involve recording new singles, doing more promotion and putting together a full scale tour in support of the project.
In lieu of the lukewarm reception her singles ‘Until Its Gone’ and ‘Anything to Find You’ have gotten from radio, Monica and her label, RCA, have decided to delay the singer’s upcoming ‘New Life’ album in order to do what the R & B singer calls a bit of “restructuring.”
In a message posted via her Twitter account, Monica thanked her fans for their years of dedication and promised that the album would indeed be “coming out soon.”
News of the delay has led fans to speculate that the singer may also be pregnant. Monica has been looking a bit plump around the waist as of late but has neither confirmed nor denied the rumor.
