The 37-year-old artist is currently on the road for her The Age of Pleasure Tour, which concludes on Oct. 18 at the YouTube Theater in Inglewood, California.
On Oct. 5, as Monáe geared up for her stop in Atlanta, a special place to the Kansas City native since it’s where she attended college and also found her people, she announced via an Instagram post that she had collaborated with Latto and Quavo for her remix of “Champagne S**t,” one the most popular songs from her fourth studio album, The Age of Pleasure — released on June 9, 2023.
A few hours later, she shared a video of herself with her team on what appears to be a tour bus. The footage shows the moment the Prince protégé shared the exciting news that “Champagne S**t” was getting the remix treatment.
