Monét took home three Grammys Sunday night, including the award for best new artist
Victoria Monét is paying homage to Beyoncé.
"Dear @Beyonce, my queen my idol my inspiration!" Monét wrote. "I was extremely nervous to come say hello to you I swear I’m usually not even the type to have the courage, but as soon as we spoke I felt a calm over me. It felt like home..and I knowwww that sounds crazy, but I felt it and that had to be God and some guardian angels too! God knows how much I love you, how you’ve musically raised me and trained me to be a better performer by watching and experiencing you, and how many solo concerts I’ve had in my room dreaming and singing into a hair brush or remote when your albums and visuals drop!"
"You’re my Diana, my Tina, my Aretha! My Bey!!!," the "On My Mama" singer added, name dropping other legendary performers Diana Ross, Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin. "Your legacy has absolutely been my artist development…the best blueprint any performer could ever ask for but never EVER to be compared!! The ONLY one🐝 The way you have gracefully balanced motherhood and world domination is to be studied! The vulnerable display of this balance in your films and in real time have helped me crawl out of postpartum and in a lot of ways saved my mind’s life."
"You’re the f-----n best!!!" she concluded. "I know I am your billionth self proclaimed biggest fan but there’s a lot of bees in this hive and the honey is endless!! 🍯 Thank you for your beauty and grace and legacy that continues opening doors for so many of us black girls, and for taking the time to speak to me on the biggest day of my career. You’ve really been here all along! 🤎 I love you forever, all ways, always! Sincerely Victoria ✨🤎"
In addition to meeting her idol, Monét had plenty to celebrate on Sunday night. She took home the Grammy for best new artist, best R&B album and best engineered album, non-classical (the latter two awards for her 2023 album Jaguar II).
"This award was a 15-year pursuit. I moved to LA in 2009. And I like to liken myself to a plant who was planted and you can look at the music industry as soil and it can look to be looked at as dirty or can be looked at as a source of nutrients and water. And my roots have been growing underneath ground unseen for so long. And I feel like today I'm sprouting finally above ground," Monet said during her acceptance speech for best new artist.
