NEW YORK, NY – Tuesday, April 23, 2024 –, a digital content property owned by iONE digital has released its latest dual cover featuring R&B Singer and mother Monica. In this HelloBeautiful cover story, the award-winning vocalist discusses her involvement in Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday 2 tour, navigating through being a mother, and provides insights into her new romantic relationship.

The Grammy Award-winning singer spoke with HelloBeautiful’s Editorial Director, Shamika Sanders, about embarking on Nicki Minaj’s “Pink Friday 2 World Tour,” motherhood and her relationship.

Nicki has always been extremely supportive. She always shared stories about singing my records when she was younger. So, we established somewhat of a relationship early on. I would always reach out and say, ‘Thank you for the support’ and vice versa. And over the years we've talked back and forth many times. When Keisha and I recorded the record - that's when the actual conversations about the ‘Pink Friday 2 Tour” transpired.”

The veteran R&B singer provided an intimate glimpse into her role as a mother to her children Laiyah, Rodney Hill III, Romelo Hill, and Ramone Hill.

“It's a level of happiness and joy and it's the unconditional love that you just can't find in other places,” she passionately described."

Basking in the love she receives from her fans and her children, Monica gave us details about her current relationship with Anthony "Ant" Wilson, an executive producer and founder of the Tycoon Music Festival, public. Reflecting on the lessons from her past relationships, she spoke about the changes in her newfound romance and its profound impact on her life.

“In my relationship now, I don't have to take over. I don't have to overthink anything really. I can just be myself, express myself, explain what's happening in my daily life, and he just fixes it. The most important thing about him that I think people would be surprised because he's so stern in business, is that he is the ultimate family man.”

She continued “He can tell you where all of my children are most of the day. He loves to make sure that his relationship with them is intact. Not in a way that seems forced, but natural. Whatever it is they love, he goes to that, meet me, meets them where they are.”
