'The Makings of Me' hits stores Oct. 3.
J/Arista Records has begun re-releasing new music exclusively to Motorola's iRadio service, making songs from upcoming albums available before the album drops and before it is serviced to traditional radio.
The first artist to participate in the initiative is Monica. Her new album "The Makings of Me" is available today (Oct. 2) ahead of its Oct. 3 release on the mobile music service. The tracks will be available via a customized Sony BMG channel on the iRadio service.
Additional mobile "leaks" featuring J/Arista artists are expected in the future.
