New Life (Intro)

  • Lyrics
  • American R&B recording artist Monica introduces her seventh album with this title track. The song is a duet with Mary J. Blige, and was a late addition to the set. Monica explained to Bet.com: "I've always wanted to work with Mary. I wanted to save that for last because I think it's always good when you sit down with artists that you admire and love and play them songs and see if anything touches them."
  • New Life was Monica's debut release with RCA, following the disbandment of her former label, J Records in October 2011. The album was dropped on April 10, 2012 in the US. She explained the meaning of its title on Twitter: "A good word goes a long way. Life is hard enough. Me and my followers believe in God, love, strength, family, unity and growth [...] Don't be afraid of new things, new people, new opportunities or new love. It just may give you a New Life."
