Victoria Monet‘s no stranger to winning praise for writing hits for other artists (see: Ariana Grande’s ‘7 Rings’ and ‘Thank U, Next,’ Chloe x Halle‘s ‘Do It,’ and more), but on August 7 the multi-talented songstress launched her own work to Billboard battle (as we reported here).
Her long-awaited debut album, ‘Jaguar’ pounced onto record shelves as her first official body of work after delivering four EPs between 2014-2018.
Garnering critical acclaim for the LP’s three leading singles – ‘Ass Like That,’ ‘Moment,’ and the Khalid-assisted ‘Experience’ – look inside to see if the set was able to mirror that success commercially.
