Ariana Grande celebrates Victoria Monét's Grammy win for R&B album

Ariana Grande

In exciting news from the 2024 Grammy Awards, Ariana Grande took to Instagram to celebrate her friend Victoria Monét's impressive win for Best R&B Album. The talented singer/songwriter emerged victorious over strong contenders such as Babyface, Coco Jones, Emily King, and Summer Walker.

Grande expressed her profound pride and happiness for Monét in a heartfelt Instagram post. With admiration and respect, she commended Monét for her years of hard work and tireless dedication to the music industry. According to Grande, Monét has consistently operated on a level of her own, quietly excelling and shaping the industry in remarkable ways.

The delighted pop star reminisced about conversations she and Monét had, dating back to the day they first met, and the hopes they shared for Monét's success. Grande joyfully acknowledged the extraordinary impact Monét has made on others and how it has now come full circle, with that same positive energy pouring right back into her. Clearly elated, Grande declared that the word 'happy' simply cannot capture the magnitude of her emotions and deemed this moment as Monét's well-deserved triumph.

The bond between Ariana Grande and Victoria Monét extends beyond their personal connection. They have collaborated on several of Grande's most beloved songs, including chart-toppers like 'thank u, next,' 'needy,' and 'Be Alright.' So close is their friendship that Monét was among the six women who received matching rings from Grande to commemorate her hit song '7 Rings.' In a delightful twist, Monét shared that when she lost one of the rings, Grande empathized and replaced it with a new one. To Monét's surprise, she later found the original, prompting Grande to insist she keep both rings, which she now wears stacked together.

Monét's achievement at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards didn't stop at winning Best R&B Album. She earned a total of seven nominations, a testament to her incredible talent and versatility. Notably, Monét received a joint nomination with her toddler daughter, Hazel, for Best Traditional R&B Performance. The nominated track, 'Hollywood,' features the legendary band Earth, Wind & Fire. With this nomination, Hazel became the youngest-ever Grammy nominee, a remarkable feat for such a young artist.

As fans and music enthusiasts eagerly await the results of the 66th Annual Grammy Awards, the industry is abuzz with the exciting news of Victoria Monét's victory and her momentous achievement. Stay tuned for more updates on this historic event in the music world.
