Victoria Monet is one to watch. Making a name for herself penning songs for Fifth Harmony, Ariana Grande, Nas, Lupe Fiasco, T.I., Chrisette Michele, Chris Brown, and Janelle Monáe among others, her light as a solo act is shining brightly.
The Cali native garnered attention with the release of her Nightmares & Lullabies: Act I EP last October after signing with Atlantic Records.
Before she dropped her follow-up EP Nightmares & Lullabies: Act II in June, Cleveland rapper MGK released their collaborative single, “A Little More.” The song became her first to chart on US R&B, where it has peaked at #35.
This month Victoria premiered Amber Gray-directed visuals for “Backyard,” from Act I.
Currently working on Ariana Grande’s third studio album, Victoria plans to release a deluxe LP of her own in a few months.
Fans in L.A. can see her perform at the Troubadour on August 1, 2015 (Tickets).
