Following the singles “DIVE,” “Moment” and “Ass Like That,” Victoria Monét has announced that her new album Jaguar will be released July 31.
She has now shared “Experience,” with Khalid and SG Lewis. “To be honest, we’ve gone back and forth about releasing this song because of the disgusting and confusing state of the world,” Victoria says. “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. We’ve always used music as a form of escapism from troubling things. 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.”
