As her first release of the new year, singer-songwriter Victoria Monét returns with the dreamy “Good Life (Yea Yea Yea).” Over smooth vibes courtesy of producer Dmile, the Cali native sings out to her man about how their love motivates her to keep working hard.
“Though I stay, I stay workin hard all day, making change / But you make it worth the paper chase, cuz that’s just what you do,” she sings.
Earlier this year, Monét was featured on Dr. Dre’s previously unreleased cut, “Back to Business.” Monét shared the story behind that fateful day when the two got together in the studio. She had just come from a music video shoot with MGK and had been awake for 24 hours when T.I. took her to the session.
“I think partly because I was delirious I was able to trick myself into not being so nervous about being in the studio with a such a legend. He even commented on how he liked me and my confidence. That made me so happy,” she said. “After I sang him my melody ideas, we wrote together and he vocal produced me to the tee. I’ve never met any one with an ear more precise! It was one of the most epic nights of my life.”
