Moneá (pronounced Mo-Nay) is a rising singer-songwriter from Richmond, Virginia.

The ethereal tune finds Moneá exploring themes of love and the urgency she possesses to chase her goals.

“I’m wide awake but I need some time to reflect. Gotta pinch myself ‘cause it’s really hard to accept. This fantasy, I can’t believe this, is this a dream? I need to chase it.” – lyrics

Our dreams can give us a lot of insight into our reality, especially if we keep track of what we’re dreaming about. In “My Eyes Are Open,” Moneá channels a dream she once had about someone that she didn’t want to end. This is what’s at the very core of her captivating new single. Once she heard the beat, she instantly thought of a dream she had about her first love before they started dating. It was a positive dream – so good that she turned it into a song.

‘My Eyes Are Open’ contains a relatable narrative and soft vocals that will resonate well with fans of Kailaya, Dana Williams, and Emilie Kahn. The smooth, ethereal tune possesses mellow drum-laden instrumentation flavored with neo-soul and indie R&B elements. Furthermore, “My Eyes Are Open” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Moneá in the near future as she continues to release new music.

Online, the young artist offers an engaging combination of enchanting R&B music and spiritual advice, appealing to lovers of personal growth, great melodies, and a keen interest in the complexities of our universe and beyond.

After dropping her debut EP, “777,” Moneá has introduced herself as the kind of artist equipped to lead fans on a spiritual journey while inspiring self-love, unity, and self-worth. Musically and lyrically fit for the mainstream, she fearlessly dives into the metaphysical while introducing a charm to existentialism, leaving many listeners on their toes from beginning to end. Also, Moneá’s ability to trust in the universe is infectious – leaving no doubt as to why she chose to release “My Eyes Are Open” on August’s full moon.
