Monica struck a quick “I rep the Southside whenever I ride” pose for shutterbugs on the scene as she arrived at her hotel in New York City on Monday (August 6). The 31-year-old singer is taking The Big Apple with husband Shannon Brown to promote his Wood-Star Music Festival.

Shannon will sponsor the 3-day event promoting entertainment, empowerment and culture with proceeds benefiting the Shannon Brown Foundation.
