GRAMMY-NOMINATED singer, songwriter, and producer Victoria Monét is warming up for a big 2023 with the release of her fiery new single, “SMOKE,” featuring LUCKY DAYE.
Produced by frequent collaborator and Grammy winner D’MILE, TIM SUBY, and YOGI, “Smoke” sizzles from start to finish with Monét and Daye’s perfect harmonies taking a trip over a funky staccato bass line and soaring horn section.
“Smoke is the beginning of a new era for me! Exhaling the old and inhaling the new,” says Monét. “I am also really happy this release is with collaborators I consider family! I can’t wait to elevate. I want all the smoke!”
Equally known to bring the heat with her visuals, Monét has also dropped the official video for “Smoke,” directed by Charlie Denis.
The unabashed homage to herbal ecstasy finds Monét and Daye in surreal and sultry setups that could only be dreamt of, leading into a glimmering finale that assures: Monét season is here!
“Smoke” represents the next era of Victoria Monét and follows a string of single releases since she heralded the 2020 solo project JAGUAR.
Remixes featuring KEHLANI (“TOUCH ME”) and BRYSON TILLER (“WE MIGHT EVEN BE FALLING IN LOVE (DUET)”) have reiterated the staying power of Jaguar while additional tracks “F.U.C.K” and “COASTIN” built on the Jaguar sound, each with impressive visuals all set in Monét’s signature warm tones and West Coast vibes.
Garnering press praise from the likes of PAPER, PITCHFORK, VULTURE, VICE, NY POST, THE NEW YORKER, THE GUARDIAN, and more, Monét continues to evolve in her artistry while challenging social norms, gender norms, and sexual norms through her multidimensional lyricism.
Monet’s breakthrough artistry led to appearances on THE LATE NIGHT SHOW WITH JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! and THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT’S #PLAYATHOME + festivals such as MADE IN AMERICA, SOL BLUME, and DAY N VEGAS and a coveted slot as an artist partner with CASH APP STUDIOS.
Monét recently announced HER FIRST EVER HEADLINING SHOW IN LOS ANGELES – which sold out in under one minute – set to take place on MARCH 31ST at the EL REY THEATRE in partnership with SPOTIFY and GOLDEN VOICE.
Monét most recently became a member of the RCA RECORDS, which signals that more new music is imminent! Victoria Monét is riding on a high with no plans to come down – until then, plan to hear “Smoke” on 420 playlists and booming out of barbecue stereos all summer.
