The video, directed by Teyana Taylor aka Spike Tee, shows the beauty inmate singing her prison song about the qualities she wants her man to possess. Considering she’s locked up and they won’t let her out, he didn’t quite fit the mold of an ideal soulmate.
Monica is also seen sharing a cell and chow time with other jailbirds like Tameka “Tiny” Harris, Summerella and Big Peaches.
“Commitment” is the lead single from Monica’s seventh album, Chapter 38, due later this year through her indie imprint MonDeenise Music, Inc. She revealed the new album will explore “love, joy, pain, heartbreak, redemption, and the ability to stand strong.”
