(source: billboard.com) One week after hitting the 'net, Monica's first single, "Anything (To Find You)," featuring Rick Ross, debuts on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at No. 71. The track from Monica's upcoming seventh studio album, "New Life" (October 18), charts with Rick Ross as a guest feature, but doesn't included verses from Lil Kim.
Prior to it's chart debut, fans voiced their thoughts on the length of Lil' Kim's guest spot. During a chat with "The Lil' Kim Fan Club Show," on the day of the rapper's 37th birthday (July 11), Lil' Kim explained to her fans that her part on Monica's single, "Anything (To Find You)" was shortened to make room for Rick Ross.
"In all actuality, I did a 16 in addition to the 8 bars that ya'll all [heard]," Lil' Kim told The Lil Kim Fan Club Show. "Monica and her people decided to add Rick Ross on the track."
A source at J Records tells Billboard.com that Lil' Kim has been removed entirely from the official song due to contractual issues. No further details were shared.
Lil’ Kim fans flooded Twitter to wish the 37(36?)-year-old rapper a happy birthday, and in return, she surprised them with a few announcements, including the title of her new single.
“Looks Like Money” is set to be the first offering from her first studio album in six years, she revealed during her birthday chat with “The Lil’ Kim Fan Club Show.” It was reportedly produced by Rockwilder (“Lady Marmalade”).
If you were wondering why Kim’s part on Monica’s single “Anything (To Find You)” was so short, she explains that her verse was cut to make room for Rick Ross and that the full version will be heard soon. “I know everybody thought that my verse was just really, really short. In all actuality, I did a 16 in addition to the 8 bars that ya’ll all hear,” she said. “Monica and her people decided to add Rick Ross on the track.”
When it came to her collaborator, she had nothing but positive things to say. “Monica is one of the realest bitches I’ve met in this game,” she said before congratulating her on her marriage to Shannon Brown. (rap-up.com)
