Muni Long emerged in 2022 to become the new artist story of the year. Out of three nominations – including Best New Artist – she took home “Best R&B Performance” for “Hrs & Hrs” at the 65th Annual GRAMMY® Awards.
Meanwhile, Usher hopped on the high-powered official remix of “Hrs & Hrs” earlier this summer. In addition, she also lit up the stage at Essence Fest. Beyond placing among Spotify’s most-listened to modern R&B artists, she has also earned widespread acclaim from Billboard, ESSENCE, New York Times, NPR, People, Pitchfork, and many more.
Now, she ignites her next chapter with “Made for Me.” On the track, subtle guitar, soulful piano, and funky talk box accent a sultry and slick beat. Simultaneously, she flexes her dynamic vocal range.
“This moment is surreal. I can’t put into words how I feel,” she said.
It culminates on the chantable lovestruck chorus, “You were made for me—just for me.”
The most streamed and buzzworthy artist in R&B today, Muni has exploded since the success of “Hrs & Hrs.” In addition to netting over 1 billion Global streams and peaking at #1 at Urban & Rhythmic radio, the track rose to Top 5 at Apple Music, and hit #17 on the Billboard Hot 100. Tastemakers are still astonished over Muni’s triumphant performance of “Hrs And Hrs” at the 2022 BET Awards. She wrapped up 2022 with American Music Awards nominations for Favorite Female R&B Artist and Favorite R&B Song (“Hrs & Hrs”). One week later, Muni opened the BET Soul Train Music Awards with a live performance of “Plot Twist,” and went on to take home the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award.
Before her soulful, conversational songwriting and powerful vocals caught fire around the world, Muni Long spent a decade as one of the best-kept behind-the-curtain secret weapons in the industry. Her journey as a much-in-demand songwriter, co-mingling R&B, rap, and pop, resulted in a diverse catalog of hits accumulated by Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Madonna, Chris Brown, Ariana Grande, Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, and Selena Gomez, to name a few.
