Victoria Monét Is a Liberated Legend-in-the-Making in ‘Alright’ Video

Unbothered and untethered, Victoria Monét delivers an otherworldly performance in the music video for “Alright,” the latest single from her debut studio album Jaguar II. The singer and songwriter assembled a dream team of collaborators to create the intergalactic visual event, which pays homage to the greats — from the Jacksons and TLC to Britney Spears and Missy Elliot — while making an undeniable case that Monét might be a legend-in-the-making herself.

“Alright is about liberation and freedom at its core,” Monét shared in a statement about the Kaytranada-produced record. “This video is a visual presentation of that sentiment through freedom of movement and fluidity between masculine and feminine energy.”

With direction from Dave Meyers and choreography from Sean Bankhead, “Alright” moves between this masculine and feminine energy with ease, channeling Venus with the malleability of sheer aerial silks in one scene and freestyling choreography in a “Smooth Criminal”-channeling pantsuit in another.

“EVERY single person who had their hands on this visual was extremely passionate from inception, and we all worked really hard to bring it to life! They showed up with their A game surpassing what we all imagined. Serious teamwork,” Monét continued. “We all patiently and meticulously crafted it and are extremely excited to release it into the world! There’s no better month to release this visual than pride month, black music month and the beginning of summer 24! I can’t wait to see where dance artists and the ballroom culture take it.”

On X (formerly Twitter), Bankhead wrote: “I just want to express my deepest gratitude for @VictoriaMonet. She has made me feel so special, seen, appreciated, loved, things she has done for me behind the scenes ill speak on in the future. she deserves the world. she’s a girls girl. she’s a team player. she deserves ALL OF THIS!”


Jaguar II, which arrived last summer, marked Monét’s official debut release on a major label, but that moment had been years in the making. The singer is a student of pop performers but has a clear vision for envisioning her own path forward and making it a reality.

“One of my biggest goals for the album was to make it feel timeless. When I think about influence, I try to go to the root of it,” Monét told Rolling Stone last year. “I want to have fun and be witty and express myself in a way that feels current to me. I think the combination of it was what makes it feel a bit more futuristic or, span more generations, because you have this really intricate musicality and bass lines and live strings and horns — just really elevated things in the midst of a really digital world.”
