An "updated take" on Smokey Robinson and the Miracle's "Much Better Off," this banger finds Monica declaring a state of emergency over the current state of contemporary R&B music. The songstress proclaims that she's bringing creativity back to the genre:
This is code red We are taking risks, we ain't scared We're making hits after hits, better play it Yo we got hits that go over your head
Monica said: "As an artist and real genuine soul/R&B lover, I felt that it's a state of emergency for the music. Its important for this generation to know and understand how important the music was and is to the world and we are best when we can bridge the sound between the old and the new."
The Polow da Don-produced cut starts off with Monica's daughter, 2-year-old Laiyah, who introduces her mother. Missy Elliott then joins Monica on the funky track.
