“Oklahoma City!! I’m ready to hit the stage with my sis @MonicaBrown!! Get your tickets now!!!!,” Cole tweeted Thursday, Jan. 17.
Cole and Monica will perform at The Trust Concert at The Criterion at 8 p.m and fans have made it clear they certainly plan to be there when doors open at 7 p.m.
“THIS GONNA BE ONE BAD ASS SHOW.. I LOOOVE YOU BOTH!!!♥️♥️”
“That’s going to be an awesome show.”
“We wanna hear Trust!!”
“Trust” is a song the two collaborated on back in 2009. After the song was initially featured on Cole’s 2008 album “A Different Me” as a solo track, it was re-recorded before the end of the year as a duet with Monica’s vocals included.
Released as a single and given a video treatment, the song peaked at no. 5 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
Monica and Cole have been pals for several years. And last year, they continued their professional relationship by hitting the road with Faith Evans as part of The First Ladies of R&B tour.
But their friendship began being called into question in 2011 when Cole was missing from Monica’s wedding to Shannon Brown. As a result, she was forced to take to Twitter to explain her absence.
“Was on tour that’s why I couldn’t make it, spoke to Mo a few days ago. Very happy for both her N Shannon,” she tweeted.
“Didn’t really want to respond 2 U guys should keep n mind we r not ‘HOLLYWOOD’ Mo and my communication will nt always B thru social networking,” she added.
A few years later, when Monica appeared on “The Breakfast Club” in 2015, she had to confront speculation about why she hadn’t been seen with Cole in public as much.
“Not a thing [happened between us],” the “T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle” star explained. “She moved to Cleveland. We were living in Atlanta. I had no children; she had no children. So you running the streets! We don’t run the streets anymore. We’re grown. So nothing happened between us.”
