Video: Victoria Monét – “Ready”
The Ariana Grande, T.I., and Nas Collaborator Releases Buoyant New Single from Forthcoming Life After Love Album
Critical Praise for Victoria Monét:
“Victoria Monét proves that she clearly knows how to make a hit.” – Pigeons & Planes
“You may not know her name yet, but that’s about to change.” – Rap-Up
“Victoria Monét’s musical situation is improving with every new release” – HotNewHipHop
Sacramento-bred, L.A.-based singer/songwriter Victoria Monét is stepping into the spotlight with “Ready,” the second single off her forthcoming Life After Love album. Life After Love chronicles Monét’s healing process after an intense break-up with her long-term partner & musical collaborator. “Ready,” a perfect antidote for the blues, makes for a turning point of the album, as it marks the place where the tracks shift from dealing with the break-up, to Monét rejoining the world and finding herself. Directed by Beyoncé‘s choreographer JaQuel Knight, the video for “Ready” fuses bombastic dancing, dramatic outfit changes, and creative pizza-eating into a veritable summer jam.
Having proved her writing talents with work on all of Ariana Grande‘s albums, including writing eight songs on Ariana’s certified platinum Dangerous Woman, Victoria Monét has also collaborated on tracks with Nas, Lupe Fiasco, Dr, Dre, Ty Dolla $ign, and Fifth Harmony, and is ready to shine through as a singer in the forefront. Cutting her teeth as a performer and a songwriter, Monét broke into the scene with a cold-call in 2014. In the time since, she’s separated herself from the pack as a stellar songwriter and performer – she toured with Fifth Harmony as their opening act all summer and is currently opening in arenas on Ariana’s Dangerous Woman Tour. In addition, Monét has also written for Chris Brown, T.I., Big Sean and Jhene Aiko. Life After Love is slated to release in the coming months.

Victoria Monét Background:
From her toddler days spent growing up in Sacramento, California, R&B singer Victoria Monét has used various creative mediums-dancing, singing, poetry-to express herself, using lessons gleaned from relationships and her interpretations of the world around her to find her niche as a sensual vocalist with unparalleled songwriting skills and, most importantly, a message that people can relate to.
Fans may recognize Monét from features on hits from T.I. and Machine Gun Kelly, but it was with her 2014 debut EP Nightmares & Lullabies – Act 1, which touts guest appearances from B.o.B and Ty Dolla $ign, that her artistic vision crystalized. Monet’s music may be intensely personal, but it’s relating to her listeners that keeps her motivated. “I feel I want to share my own story,” she says. “There’s a girl out there who was shy like me, who maybe didn’t know how to express herself any other way. I want to represent that person, the underdog that no one thought would make it and would just be submissive and not be heard.”
