  • - When I think of singer,

  • I think Whitney, like powerhouse vocals.

  • You know, I still of think myself more on the creative side.

  • I don't think that I ever really thought I'm a singer.

  • I am Victoria Monet and this is On The Rise.

  • When I moved to LA, I started writing for other people.

  • So I was always a songwriter,

  • but originally, it was for my own music.

  • And then I was able to tap into other peoples' narratives

  • and do different styles.

  • My very first placement as a songwriter

  • for another artist was actually a song called,

  • "I Hate That You Love Me."

  • It is was on Diddy Dirty Money's project

  • and it was such an incredible energy

  • and feeling to be able to do that

  • because I've known about Diddy

  • and all of his name and glory

  • for I feel my whole life.

  • He sent me a jacket that I still have.

  • It looks like a bomber jacket.

  • I feel like I'll able to tell my kids and grandkids,

  • "Look what your grandma did!

  • "I got this jacket from Diddy.

  • "Yeah, look him up."

  • Some of the people I've got to work with

  • as a songwriter and collaborate with include

  • T.I., Chris Brown and Jhene Aiko,

  • Ariana Grande, Fifth Harmony.

  • But one crazy, crazy one that was at an early stage

  • that I didn't feel like someone

  • as legendary would even consider was Nas.

  • I got to be on his "Life Is Good" album.

  • It's nice to get validation from someone who's been

  • in the game so long and seen so much

  • and passed through so many people

  • and to be selected and appreciated

  • and valued enough to even be kept on his iconic project.

  • Well, my dream collaborator

  • and I feel like the world's dream collaborator,

  • or just to be in this person's presence ever at all,

  • or even within a 100 yards.

  • (laughs) Beyonce.

  • Beyonce is the queen of all queens.

  • I wouldn't even know what to say to her if we got to meet.

  • You know (laughs) my first celebrity crush ever

  • was Jonathan Taylor Thomas.

  • I think I watched him in "Tom and Huck" maybe every day

  • for a long time.

  • He's just such a handsome, young lad.

  • Another crush I had at a young age,

  • which I was confused if I wanted to be her

  • or kiss her (laughs)

  • but Tatyana Ali in Fresh Prince.

  • She can get it.

  • I also really want to work, somehow, with Sade.

  • She doesn't need me at all, so I just want it for myself

  • and just to experience her.

  • She has a mystique about her too,

  • that you don't really see her

  • that much, so to find her...

  • I don't know if this is inappropriate,

  • but like finding a leprechaun.

  • It's like, (cheers)

  • So Grammy-nomination morning,

  • very early because I feel like they're on New York time,

  • so for me it was 5 a.m.,

  • and my eyes were still adjusting to the light.

  • But I was on my phone,

  • scrolling on the nominations page, and I saw my name.

  • "Are you sure?"

  • I was zooming in like, "Wait. Are you sure?"

  • And so, obviously my mom was super, super proud and excited.

  • She came with me to the Grammy's.

  • And yeah, it was just something that I've always wanted

  • to be apart of from a young age.

  • Even with all of the good things going on for me,

  • I don't feel like I've made it.

  • I feel like work is now just starting to begin.

  • I have a lot of things I want to accomplish

  • and experience and share with people.

  • So, this is definitely peeled off another layer.

  • And I don't know if I'll ever feel like I've made it.

  • I feel like as long as I'm alive,

  • there's gonna be one more thing that I want to do.

  • Right now, I think everybody should be listening...

  • One: to "The Foundation Of Music" which I feel

  • a lot of it comes from Motown.

  • It just makes every day feel

  • a little better, especially Sundays.

  • So, if you're having any trouble and anxiety

  • because there's a lot going on the world,

  • you should listen to that.

  • I also feel like everyone should be listening

  • to some new artists like Snoh Aalegra, Lucky Daye,

  • Ari Lennox, and anything DEMAR produces.

  • You should probably listen to it.

  • So immediately next for me is going back to LA,

  • starting rehearsals for...

  • I get to perform on Jimmy Kimmel,

  • which will be my first solo television performance

  • and I'm very excited and nervous

  • and just wanna perfect it.

  • After that, I'll put out a project in the spring called

  • "Jaguar" and there's another project to follow,

  • which will also be "Jaguar," but just another part of it,

  • so I'd be expecting that.

  • But for me, really I'm just trying

  • to balance my songwriting and artist career perfectly.

  • My life in five years, I hope I'm still happy,

  • I hope that I'm still making lots and lots of great music,

  • and I don't have a writer's block or something.

  • I hope that I have a love life and a family

  • and a good, healthy balance of business

  • and play and everything in between.

  • I, of course, want the covers the of magazines

  • and the awards and the opportunities

  • to do a world tour as a solo artist

  • and all of the accolades.

  • But really, the biggest one that sticks out

  • to me is just happiness.

  • And yeah, I really would love some children.

  • (laughs)

  • Whether or not they're coming out of my body,

  • I just want to hold and...

  • I'll start with a puppy.

  • But I eventually like children.

  • I'm happy, you know?

  • And that feels nice.

  • Right where I'm at, right at this moment,

  • no matter if it's "successful" to the world or not,

  • I feel really happy with what's happening

  • and who I'm surrounded by

  • and just the opportunity to be able to do what I love.
