Victoria Monét, the multi-talented, Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, and producer, has once again proven her musical prowess with the release of her latest single, “On My Mama”. Released under the banner of Lovett Music/RCA Records, this track is a vibrant addition to the summer anthems of 2023 and serves as the final teaser before the release of her much-anticipated sophomore album, JAGUAR II.
“On My Mama” is a masterful blend of old and new, sampling the classic 2000s hip-hop track “I Look Good” by Chalie Boy. The song is a celebration of self-confidence and positivity, featuring empowering lyrics layered over an energetic mix of blaring horns by Kyla Moscovich, smooth melodies, and a bass-heavy beat produced by Jamil “Deputy” Pierr and Jeff “Gitty” Gitelman.
Monét describes “On My Mama” as “the soundtrack to positive affirmations”, a song that not only uplifts listeners with its catchy tune but also encourages them to embrace their unique selves. The lyrics speak to both physical features and inner feelings, reinforcing the belief that feeling good enhances one’s appearance.
This empowering anthem is the third single off JAGUAR II, following the success of “Party Girls” ft. Buju Banton and “Smoke” ft. Lucky Daye. Both tracks have received widespread acclaim from major publications like Billboard, Rolling Stone, and Pitchfork, among others.
After the success of her 2020 solo project, JAGUAR, Monét has kept the momentum going with a series of releases, including collaborations with Kehlani and Bryson Tiller. Her unique blend of 70s influences and contemporary sound, coupled with her engaging visuals, has kept fans and critics alike eagerly awaiting her next move.
In addition to her musical achievements, Monét has made appearances on popular late-night shows and music festivals, further solidifying her place in the music industry. Her first-ever headlining show in Los Angeles sold out in under a minute, demonstrating her growing popularity.
As a new member of RCA Records, Monét is poised for even greater success. With the release of “On My Mama”, she continues to build anticipation for her upcoming album, JAGUAR II, set to drop in the summer of 2023. As she continues to break boundaries and redefine her sound, Victoria Monét is undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.
