Victoria Monét and Khalid have shared a new collaboration, “Experience.” The song, produced by S.G. Lewis, is from Monét’s upcoming project Jaguar, due out on July 31.
While announcing the track on June 16, Monét and Khalid explained their decision to stick with the release plan despite the current painful situation, writing, “We’ve always used music as a form of escapism from troubling things. This song, though deep in subject matter, sonically simply feels joyful and celebratory. It’s important to us to highlight and celebrate Black joy and love in the middle of so much pain and trauma.”
The singers said they hope the song would bring “some solace and joy” to fans, adding, “We hope the double-ended message of this song is heard: based on experience, we want change! We matter, we always have. Here’s to making changes and celebrating US the best ways we know how. Genuine love to you and yours.”
Monét also highlighted the importance of June, which represents both Black Music Month and Pride Month. She indicated her “queer identity is another important celebration for me” even throughout the global pandemic.
“I’m hoping that experience can get you to change,” Monét sings in chorus.
