Ariana Grande Shares Touching Tribute to Victoria Monét After 2024 Grammys Win

Victoria Monét, a longtime friend and collaborator of Ariana Grande’s, won several 2024 Grammys, including Best New Artist. To celebrate, Grande sent Monét a message from the heart.

It looks like this friendship is really growing like Home Depot.

The 2024 Grammys were held on February 4, and Victoria Monét won three awards, including Best New Artist. Her longtime friend Ariana Grande was quick to congratulate the “On My Mama” singer.

In a message on her Instagram Story on February 4, she said, “My friend, you deserve this a million times over.” “I am so proud and happy for you that I can’t even put it into words.” Along with being quietly in a league of your own, you have worked so hard and given so much of yourself to this business for so long.

Ariana, who sang with Victoria on 2019’s “Monopoly,” also praised their friendship.

“We’ve talked about this happening since the day we met over many tour bus sleepovers,” she said. It makes me so happy to see all the good things you’ve done for other people, especially your collaborators (I’m so lucky to be one of them), coming back to you. Happiness doesn’t even come close to explaining it. This is the big moment for you!”

Victoria, 34, and Ariana, 30, met around 2011 when Victoria was still on Nickelodeon’s Victorious and Ariana was still on Wicked. The two have stayed close since then. Victoria has written a lot of Ariana’s biggest hits, like “7 rings,” “thank u, next,” and “34 + 35.”

Victoria also won awards at the 66th Grammys for Best R&B Album and Best Engineered, Non-Classical Album. However, she got her first nominations at the 2020 ceremony for her work with Ariana on thank u, next, which she told Billboard at the time was “the closest I can get to writing for myself.”

The “yes, and?” singer has been talking about how great it is to work with her friend for a few years now.

“So rarely do I meet people in the business who haven’t been tainted by it or grown some kind of crazy ego,” the 30-year-old told Billboard in 2019. “She is one of the nicest people I know and a great writer and singer who will always be loved.” I’m proud of the work we’ve done together and can’t wait to see her art skills improve.

It wasn’t just Victoria who won a lot of money that night, even though she did. Find out who won each Grammy in 2024 below.
