Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Victoria Monét is a multi-dimensional, versatile singer, songwriter, and dancer whose forthcoming solo project, Jaguar, is an unapologetic declaration of female empowerment and sexual freedom. As a queer woman of color working in a landscape that still actively pigeonholes artists with marginalized identities, Monét makes music and art that play with gender roles, and themes of femininity.
Monét leveraged her considerable songwriting skills writing some of the biggest hits in contemporary pop, hip-hop, and R&B for top 40 and critical darlings like Nas, T.I., Chloe x Halle, and Brandy. She earned four nominations at last year's Grammys for her work on Ariana Grande’s thank u, next. Monét’s unique ability to juxtapose the fresh and familiar, the sexual and substantial, and the feeling of nostalgia with modern and youthful aesthetics, sets her apart.
