Wammie-award-winning DMV rapper/artist/dancer Nia Monaé, also known as Pink Moni, has released her new single “Make It Make Sense,” or “M.I.M.S.,” inspired by the group of the same name; the song sample’s M.I.M.S.’s “This Is Why I’m Hot.”
Pink Moni has made a name for herself as the first, youngest, and only female rapper to win a music competition in Baltimore. She has amassed thousands of views across her social media, including going viral on TikTok several times.
Her new song is “inspired by me feeling as if my career is progressing,” Monaé says, “and I want everything I do and every next step I make to ‘make sense’.” She describes her music as party/club music, “So this song is definitely a song to get the clubs jumping.” It is available now on all streaming platforms!

When D.C. venues were ready to reopen after COVID-19, indie pop duo GLOSSER was ready to perform. The two, Riley Fanning and Corbin Sheehan, formed the band pre-COVID out of a shared aesthetic vision and passion for music storytelling.
Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__](https://open.spotify.com/album/0KLORhtj3ohV4FtbdjoKu5?si=iNZX9fiZSm2M6V8pRdBkow) exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.
The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
