Monica is prepping her seventh studio album and she’s pulling out all the stops.

Looking like 1996, Mo cut her hair to resemble her debut look from almost 20 years ago! The R&B singer sat down with People mag to chat about her new ‘do, bold color and upcoming album, Code Red.

“The cut symbolizes me getting back to the fearlessness and courageous part of myself that I shared with the world in the ’90s when I released my first album ‘Miss Thang,’” Monica shares with PEOPLE. “It’s easy to over-think things and not trust your natural instincts. I let go and let the music be created in my truth.”

The beautiful mother of three also revealed her album cover featuring the new look and a super cute, yellow Versace jacket and Guiseppe Zanotti caged heels.

“I embrace my cross color stage just as much as I embrace and appreciate my sophisticated moments,” she says. “It’s been a fun journey and it’s awesome to look back at all of my many style changes over 20 years.”

Get it, Mo!

When will these magazines learn…

Lupita Nyong’o just checked Grazia UK for brazenly altering her hair to remove any trace of kink, coil or wave. The magazine had invited the stunning actress to grace the cover of their November issue, but when the photo hit the ‘net there was one thing missing … Nyong’o’s natural ponytail.

In a lengthy IG post, Lupita let’s them have it, stating in part, “Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like.”

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like.
