Monique Moy to release Bag Lady
While it seems all the rage in 2011 for ladies in entertainment to rant and rave dramatically to garner public attention, there are still those artists who would rather connect with fans through uplifting messages without resorting to theatrics. Enter Monique Moy, a gifted songwriter and performer who delights in sharing her positive energy through music.
On March 7, 2011, Moy will unveil her new street album Bag Lady, presented by Florida's DJ Rell via Minneapolis-based Hudson Records. The insightful project offers 13 original tracks from Monique Moy, with guest appearances from Drake, T-Pain, Pitbull, Trina, Mr. CG, Supa Chino, T-Hud, American Idol season 5 finalist Paris Bennett and more.

For production, Moy united a number of sounds from the likes of trio The TrackSlayerz (T.I., Jim Jones, Lloyd Banks), CP Hollywood (Trina, Lil Boosie, Triple C's) and Covea Jiles Music Group (Omarion, Brutha). She's also nabbed some unique national flavor from Mississippi's J.Skillz da Bandman, Chicago's The Cubist, Houston's Juven and more.
The Hudson Records team has worked tirelessly with Moy to develop the Bag Lady project, especially CEO Troy Hudson, also known as T-Hud. Hudson personally produced four tracks for Moy, and even laid down some vocals for the anthemic "Mean Shoe Game."
Born in Philadelphia, raised in Chicago, and currently living in Minneapolis, Moy's experiences around the country have given her a unique voice in music. In 2010, she wrote 50Tyson’s hit single “Don’t Know How to Dougie (But I Know How to Diddi)” ft. Nerdy Star, and performed the hook. As a follow-up, she tested the waters in December 2010 with the release of her first mixtape, Been There Done That hosted by Germany’s DJ Cosinus.
The buzz single from Bag Lady, "Okay," features a lively chorus from international superstar Pitbull and a standout verse from Hip Hop's 'Diamond Princess' Trina. Monique will follow with a video for the first official single "Superstar" which features songbird Paris Bennett.
Songs on the the project range from magnetic dance tracks to poetic personal reflection, and Moy hopes that other women be inspired to find their own brand of independence through her lyrical testimony.
“Bag Lady is catered for every single woman. Explore your femininity, and be tough and confident!” Monique explains. “The handbag represents ‘us’, and what’s inside of it depends on individuality. I started writing about my life, my needs and my wants, and what I wrote needed to be written. We only have moments in time, so I am grateful to God for every one of them.”
