The Victoria Monet Essential Birthday Playlist

Here are some of our favorite tracks from the multi-talented artist.

When Victoria Monet won the 2024 Grammy Award for Best New Artist, fans were delighted, but she wasn't new to us. The multi-hyphenate has been active since 2010 and has been in rotation even for those who didn't realize she was involved in one of their favorite songs. Since she has balloons on her page, we'd celebrate by highlighting a selection of essential Victoria Monet tracks because we love them and because they represent her versatility as a singer, writer, and producer.


Evoking a chill West Coast vibe and a slight nod to the Mary Jane Girls, this is one of her more understated jams, but it still hits all the right marks.

Touch Me (Remix)

If you read between the lines, Kehlani's inclusion on the remix takes this sexy track to a whole new level.  

New Love

We appreciate this track for taking its cues from the early 90s without being too obvious with its references.


Kaytranada blesses this standout from Jaguar II with his signature sound and we're itching for another collab.

Rather Be - Brandy

Monet is best known as a writer for her frequent collaborations with Ariana Grande, but you may have yet to learn she co-wrote this track from Brandy's 2020 B7.

The Glow

This remake of the classic from The Last Dragon appears on season three of Insecure, as Issa finally unpacks her new apartment. 


This funky pop-driven earworm is the title track from her first Jaguar project and has become her signature song. 

Happy birthday, Victoria!
