Victoria Monet secured a win in the Best R&B Album category at the 2024 Grammy Awards on Sunday night with her project, Jaguar II. In doing so, she beat out Babyface (Girls Night Out), Summer Walker (Clear 2: Soft Life EP), Emily King (Special Occasion), and Coco Jones (What I Didn’t Tell You (Deluxe)).

Despite being active in the industry for over a decade, Jaguar II marked Monet's debut studio album. She's been nominated for three Grammys prior to 2024 for work she contributed to songs by Ariana Grande as well as Chloe and Halle Bailey.

'I am so deeply proud of you and happy for you there are no words," Grande wrote on Instagram. "You have worked so hard and given so much of yourself to this industry for so, so long while quietly being in your absolute own league. We've talked about this happening since the day we met and over many tour bus sleepovers. It is the greatest joy to see the goodness you have poured into others, into your collaborators (I am so incredibly lucky to be one of them) over the years pouring right back into you. Happy does not begin to cover it. This is your motherf*ckin MOMENT!!!!!" Check out Monet's response below.
