Victoria Monét admits music career has been an 'uphill battle'

Victoria Monét has admitted that her music career has been an "uphill battle".

The On Your Mama singer has opened up about trying to make a name for herself as a solo artist.

"It was a very difficult, uphill battle trying to get people to understand there's a duality to me, that my relevance wasn't only based on my proximity to somebody else," Victoria told Billboard.

The musician is known for working on a number of other artists' songs, including Ariana Grande's smash hits Thank U, Next and 7 Rings.

"Interview after interview, questions were snuck in about the artists I worked with," the 34-year-old continued. "I just wanted to be a stand-alone artist with my own reputation."

Victoria, who began working as a songwriter in 2010, has also penned tracks for the likes of Blackpink, Chloe x Halle and Fifth Harmony.

Elsewhere in the interview, the hitmaker said Academy Award-winning record producer and songwriter D'Mile has been a key supporter of her solo music career.

"It's very hard to ask somebody to invest their time when you don't have a label to push it through, a production or video budget," she told the publication. "But D'Mile was like, 'I don't care about that. I think you're talented and love your voice... We got this.'"

D'Mile is best known for working with Rihanna, Celine Dion, Alicia Keys and Usher, among others.
