Victoria Monét continues to make a point with every single release, the point being, she is not to be slept on when it comes to the music industry. She comes through with her highly anticipated nine track offering titled ‘Jaguar’.
She has been riding solo through her Nightmare & Lullabies and Life After Love series but today, she calls on the assistance of Khalid and SG Lewis to help her do justice to two tracks on the project. Khalid is featured on a previously released track “Experience,” which the singer says means a lot to her.
“This song, though deep in subject matter, sonically simply feels joyful and celebratory. It’s important to us to highlight and celebrate Black joy and love in the middle of so much pain and trauma,” Monét said during the release of ‘Experience,’ referencing the continued killing of Black citizens in police custody. “June is Black Music Month. It’s also Pride Month — and even though worldwide celebrations had initially been canceled for public safety during a health crisis, I, Victoria, feel my queer identity is another important celebration for me,” the singer continued.
