Victoria Monét, one of our favorite girls here at The Honey POP, has been making moves since her debut EP, Nightmares and Lullabies: Act I, in 2014. Fast forward to today, the ‘Jaguar‘ singer has continued to slay in every single possible way! She’s a trendsetter, besties with our Queen Ariana Grande, and an R&B legend in her own right. Here are five reasons why you should stan Victoria Monét!
She’s written songs for all of your favorite artists
From T.I. to Chloe X Halle, Monét has roots of songwriting in her blood. Not only has she received Grammy nominations for her work on ‘thank u, next’ and ‘7 rings,’ she’s also written for the likes of Nas, Chris Brown, and Fifth Harmony— to name a few. Since a young age, Monét began her career as a songwriter, eventually writing for herself and as a result, channeling her creative visions into a successful singing career.
She sings about strength and positivity
In ‘Ass Like That,’ a smooth R&B workout anthem, Monét delves into the inspiration behind the song. In discussions, Victoria stated, “I wanted to be strong enough to talk about my own body the way men do in many rap songs. I reserve and deserve the right to talk about it, with or without the world’s approval, because they never asked for mine. They never ask for ours. I hope this song inspires more women to feel good about the personal goals they set out to achieve and talk about them how they please. Let this song be one of many on the soundtrack to that journey.”
Do we even need another reason to stan this body positive queen?
She’s not afraid to try new things
Monét rang in the New Year with joyous sounds of her Christmas EP titled A Jaguar Christmas: The Orchestral Arrangements, which reached No. 1 on the Apple Music US Classical charts. The EP is composed of five glorious orchestral versions of previously released tracks. While it may seem unusual to see an artist release a Christmas album without the usual Christmas jams, Monét continues to blaze into new territory and seamlessly execute everything she does.
She’s going to be an outstanding mom
Last December, Monét announced her pregnancy! Along with posting glowing pregnancy photos, she penned a beautiful note to her future child and of their upcoming life together. In an Instagram caption, she wrote, “You are the best of me, and I promise to protect you and be the best version of myself for you always, always.”
BRB, we’re crying. Also, can we talk about how excellent her future albums will be? The inspiration and dedication will be off the charts! Just picture a Blue Ivy moment, like Bey.
Her personal style
If you’re a true stan of Victoria Monét, like we are, you can guess we are as obsessed with her style as much as her music! As we said, she’s not afraid to try new things. Nevertheless, she has a distinct, monochromatic vibe that leaves us wanting to return to the 90s and live it up. She can rock any shade of brown, lip gloss poppin’, and slays in every photo she posts online, no matter what she’s wearing. The obsession is real!
