“Victoria Monét’s ‘Jaguar II’ is the Crown Jewel of this Summer’s R&B Resurgence” – Rolling Stone 

“She’s an essential addition to the brilliance of Black women songwriters who’ve decided to prioritize their starpower after shaping the trajectory of pop music with their pen.” – ELLE 

“Monét is stepping into the light and reaping her own rewards. For those who have followed her career since the beginning, it feels as if it’s about damn time.” – Harper’s Bazaar 

“The beauty of the album is its mix of old and new school sounds spanning generations and genres in a form that’s unique by Monét who leverages true instrumentation to add texture to the music in a way that weaves the listener into the messaging” – Forbes 

Multi-talented Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and producer, Victoria Monét has released her debut album, JAGUAR II, available now via Lovett Music/RCA Records. JAGUAR II clarifies who she is and who she’s meant to be – a trend-setting star who transcends fan expectations as she continues to metamorphosize from go-to songwriter into full blown household name as an artist. 

JAGUAR II doubles down on themes of being a multi-dimensional woman and marks this album debut as the most formative moment in her career. Similar to the first iteration of JAGUAR, the album is executive produced by Victoria Monét, Grammy-winning producer D’Mile (Silk Sonic, H.E.R.) and music executive + manager Rachelle Jean-Louis. The new album projects a great outlook on Monét’s musical growth with intro singles “Smoke” ft. Lucky Daye, “Party Girls” ft. Buju Banton, and “On My Mama”. “On My Mama” in particular continues to see great success online and at radio and has heightened the anticipation of JAGUAR II with the recently-released 2000s-inspired music video trending for over a week straight, high praises and reposts from everyone from Cardi B, SZA, Teyana Taylor, Camila Cabello, Ariana Grande, Ciara, fans and media. Monét’s striking choreography courtesy of Sean Bankhead has been viewed over 30 million times across Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and TikTok with fans reposting clips and posting themselves doing the choreo. The icing on the cake of JAGUAR II is a special appearance on “Hollywood” from Earth, Wind, & Fire and Monét’s 2-year-old daughter, Hazel Monét. The new body of work is more than just an extension of Monét’s JAGUAR movement – it’s an ascension of her upward trajectory while spanning across new terrain with an unadulterated bravado.  

Monét is also seizing the moment of The JAGUAR II era with her sold out JAGUAR Tour, set to begin on September 6th in Detroit, MI. She will perform across North American stages with stops in Toronto, New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and more before doing her first ever solo shows in London in November. This tour stamps the first opportunity to hear the melodic jams of JAGUAR II in concert, as well as also performing songs from the JAGUAR EP. Check for more information.  

To celebrate the album release, Monét will host The JAGUAR II Listening Party on Amazon’s live radio app Amp, on Friday, August 25 at 9 AM ET / 12 PM PT. Joined by Grammy-winning producer and co-executive producer of the album, D’Mile, Monét will connect with fans live to spin tracks from the new album and share the personal stories behind the songs. Fans in the U.S. can download Amp here and follow @victoriamonet to tune in live, comment in the chat, and request to call in, or ask Alexa to “play Amp” on Alexa-enabled devices. 

The adrenaline-packed album capitalizes on all the momentum surrounding Monét, whose evolution is on full display. As an absolute showcase of her star power, JAGUAR II sees Monét seizing the moment and flourishing as one of the most dynamic and exhilarating voices in music today. She has received supportive nods from her music peers and early admiration from the likes of Complex, ELLE, Forbes, Harper’s BAZAAR, People, Rolling Stone, – among others. She even recently found herself tapped as one of the most recent cover stars for Clash Magazine. Her dominating summer continues with JAGUAR II, a well-deserved milestone for an artist whose talent continues to be proved unrivaled.
