Monica Adds Akon For a Smooth New Single “Hustler’s Ambition”

Monica’s upcoming album Code Red has features from Missy Elliot, Timbaland, Lil Wayne, and on this new single, Akon.  “Hustler’s Ambition”, led by a faint guitar instrumental, is a beautiful duet between Akon and Monica where Akon talks about the sacrifices he has to make, but guarantees he will be home in the morning while Monica just hopes he actually will.  You can still catch Monica and Rico Love on the Code Red Experience tour which ends December 13 in New York.  Code Red comes out December 18. Listen to the song below.

Watch Akon talk about why hip hop’s opulence is unnecessary and disrespectful & why he’s lighting Africa on Sway in the Morning.
