Victoria Monét on her ‘affirming’ 7 Grammy nominations, being queer in R&B and living in the moment

Singer-songwriter and hitmaker Victoria Monét is taking a moment to reflect on the past year and share her excitement for what lies ahead after receiving an impressive seven Grammy nominations for her debut album “Jaguar II.” With a notable career penning hits for artists like Ariana Grande and Chloe x Halle, Monét discusses the significance of this moment in her artistic journey, emphasizing the importance of authenticity in her music.

As an openly bisexual artist, she delves into the challenges she faced in the R&B genre, feeling initially “hidden” and restricted. However, she expresses joy in being able to come out and find acceptance within a community ready to relate without judgment. Monét acknowledges the honor of being a source of comfort through her music for those who may not have such a supportive community.

Looking ahead, Monét shares her eagerness to get back in the studio and the anticipation of her second album. Despite the common belief that the second album post a successful one is challenging, she aims to maintain authenticity and create music that feels right to her. Planning to tour again and collaborate with other artists in the upcoming year, she also expresses an interest in exploring new writing avenues for film, TV, books, or scripts.

Victoria Monét encourages a balance between living in the moment and preparing for the future, acknowledging the hard work that has led her to this point and expressing gratitude for the journey.
