New Song: Victoria Monét – ‘Experience’ (featuring Khalid & SG Lewis)

Published: Thursday 18th Jun 2020 by Rashad

Amid the country’s darkest hours, singer-songwriters Khalid and Victoria Monet are joining forces to shed some light.

Announcing the union earlier this week, Monet issued a statement to say:

“To be honest, we’ve gone back and forth about releasing this song because of the disgusting and confusing state of the world,” the statement reads. “After a lot of thinking and feeling, we decided to continue with the plan to put it out, so we want to give some context on why.

As June marks Pride month and Black Music month, the fight for LGBT rights and racial justice is still ongoing.  In the statement, Monet emphasized the two struggles should not be compared as they are ‘not the same,’ but they share a common goal of seeking equality and fairness.

“We’ve always used music as a form of escapism from troubling things,” the statement continues. “This song, though deep in subject matter, sonically simply feels joyful and celebratory. It’s important to us to highlight and celebrate Black joy and love in the middle of so much pain and trauma.”

Hear the Disco-inspired tune inside:

We hope this brings some solace and joy to you. We hope the double ended message of this song is heard: based on experience, we want change!” Monet said of the song. “We matter, we always have. Here’s to making changes and celebrating US the best ways we know how.”

    Victoria is an amazing writer, her music is decent… she’s criminally underrated it’s crazy! I hope she gets the recognition she deserve but I’m sure the industry will shelf her like they did Justin Skye & Sevyn

      “The industry ”

      More like the black community
      The black community keep paying people like victoria, fka twigs, emelie Sande, h.e.r, etc dust.

      Instead you guys prefer to hype and support flopmani , who cant sing, cant write, who cant produce. Only talent is doing a cartwheel and playing victim.

      Just look at chloe and halle for example. They made a great album but black people paid it dust. The album is predicted to miss the top 10. Can u imagine.

      Victoria monet will be fine cause she can write bops.
      7 rings, thank u next,
