The official follow-up music video to her latest smash single, “ON MY MAMA,” by multi-talented, GRAMMY-NOMINATED singer/songwriter and producer VICTORIA MONÉT, adds to summer playlists even more.
The 2000s-nostalgic video oozes southern charm, with ground-scraping lowriders, signature Y2K street style, cameos from Black fraternities and sororities and HBCU culture, various dance numbers from renowned choreographer SEAN BANKHEAD, and special cameos from Monét’s own mama and intuitively talented 2-year-old daughter, Hazel Monét.
The “On My Mama” video harkens back to a pivotal period in the early 2000s, when underground southern music began to dominate national airwaves and capture the attention of people all over the world.
“‘On My Mama’ is the soundtrack to positive affirmations. I wrote it postpartum when I wasn’t feeling my best, but spoke to how I wanted to feel. Singing the lyrics about yourself will change your frequency, and elevate a positive mental state. The words speak not only to physical features, but to a feeling too because I believe when you feel good you look even better! Give yourself the words you need to hear because it’s true, you look good! There’s no one like you and that’s on ya mama. Enjoy being yourself witcha fine ass!”-Victoria Monét
Victoria’s “On My Mama” hit a home run by sampling the Chalie Boy track “I Look Good” while floating positive affirmations over KYLA MOSCOVICH’s blaring horns, signature smooth melodies, and an 808 and bass-heavy beat produced by DEPUTY AND JEFF GITTY.
Shortly after its release, the summer anthem surpassed 8 million streams in its first few weeks, propelling Monét even further into the popstar ecosystem.
The new song is the latest addition to her catalog of summer anthem contenders for 2023, and it is the third and final single before the long-awaited release of her debut album, JAGUAR II, on August 25th.
Both have received high praise, leading Victoria to be named “Song of the Summer” by NYLON and PITCHFORK, one of the “Must Hear Albums this August” by GRAMMY.COM, and even one of the most recent faces on the cover of CLASH MAGAZINE.
All three singles herald the start of a new era for Victoria Monét, who will embark on her first SOLD OUT NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINING TOUR, THE JAGUAR TOUR, in September.
