Born and raised in Florida, Muni Long‘s incredible journey took her from creating videos in her bedroom to becoming a highly accomplished R&B songwriter and solo artist. Her talents as a co-writer shone through with incredible hits like Rihanna’s “California King Bed,” Fifth Harmony’s “Worth It,” and the iconic collaboration between Pitbull and Kesha, “Timber.”

From 2020 to 2022, Muni released a series of meticulously crafted contemporary R&B EPs that captivated audiences everywhere. Among these releases, her single “Hrs & Hrs” soared to platinum status, becoming a certified hit in April 2022. Demonstrating her artistic growth, she combined and expanded her Public Display EPs, giving birth to the magnificent full-length album, “Public Displays of Affection.”
