After sharing various tracks off the project, rising singer/songwriter Victoria Monét releases the second installment in her Nightmares & Lullabies EP series. Executive produced by Tommy Brown, the 7-track EP features additional production by Mr. Franks and Travis Sayles, plus an appearance from T.I., who guests on “Mad Generation.”
The Sacramento native got her start working behind the scenes, penning records for artists including Ariana Grande, Chris Brown, T.I., and Fifth Harmony.
“Nightmares & Lullabies is a metaphor for the juxtapositions ones life can display—bad days vs. the best ones and how they can play off of each other,” Monét told Billboard. “It also describes my sound. My voice represents the lullaby, and the tribal undertone in the music is dark like a nightmare.”
“As crazy as this sounds, the EP makes me feel like a mother,” she continues to share. “Strict with standards, protective and critical, but proud and anxious to share the beauty of it. It’s in my blood, my DNA, my soul. It’s my baby and I worked my butt off to raise it to be the best. When you see the fruits of your labor, you’ll just want to make another one.”
