Victoria Monét re-enters the chat today with groovy new single “Coastin”, her first new drop of the summer, featuring production from The Stereotypes. The track is also her first musical release since giving birth to a beautiful baby girl. “Coastin’” is set to be a summer hit with a funky bassline, laid-back feel and Victoria’s contemporary reinvention of 70s funk. Hailing from Sacramento, Monét also calls the song a love letter to California. It interpolates Keni Burke’s “Risin’ to the Top” – a song also famously sampled in Mary Jane Girls “All Night Long”.
Monét shares on the new song, “If sunshine and a good time (and maybe a lil drank) were a song, it would be “Coastin’“! It’s made for people with that good, chill energy and the bassline instantly puts you in a certain feel! Shoutout to the Stereotypes for killing this production. We wanted this song to represent that freedom to finally go outside. After the year we’ve had, it feels even better to be able to finally Coast freely, make unforgettable memories and have a good ass time. Might I add it sounds especially good in the car, poolside or near any beach. Press play and let’s Coast!”
Victoria Monét continues to push boundaries with her music, beautifully dancing on the line of truthful experience and fearlessness. Last year Monét released her widely adored project, JAGUAR which garnered incredible support from NPR, The Guardian, NME, The Face, The Independent and more. Monét landed her late-night debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, performing “Moment”, and topped iTunes R&B charts in 66 countries. Monét has been a favourite for streaming platforms, with early support from Apple Music ( Up Next Artist ), Spotify, Amazon, YouTube and Deezer. Earlier this year Monét released “F.U.C.K”, a playful and flirtatious single that quickly garnered millions of streams internationally and celebrity attention.
2020 was also another huge songwriting year for Victoria Monét. She is responsible for some of the biggest hits leveraging her songwriting skills into chart-topping hits – most recently for Chloe X Halle (“Do It”), BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez (“Ice Cream), Brandy (“Rather Be”) – and again for Ariana Grande for her last single and remix with Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion “34+35”.
