In a new interview, Normani revealed when her highly anticipated debut album is set to drop and how the album is going to be different from her hit song “Motivation.” Let’s get into it!
As fans remember, in summer 2019, Normani stole our hearts as a solo artist with her song Motivation. And since then, fans have anxiously been awaiting her highly anticipated debut solo album.
Unfortunately for us Normani stans, we’ve all been waiting for this music for a while now, which is likely due in part to the pandemic. While Normani released some singles and made some cameos last year, we are more than ready for her debut era.
In March, almost two years after her debut solo single, she teased that more music was finally on the way, tweeting “wow… the record I’m making right now” along with the exploding head emoji. She also followed up in another tweet and tagged her producer, writing, “@ilya_creates you legend you.”
And when even Cardi B got in on the excitement for Normani’s new music, Normani teased that a music video was also in the works. But it’s been two months now, and we hadn’t heard much about this new music again… until now. In a new interview with W Magazine, Normani spilled tea about her album and when we can expect it.
According to Pop Crave, in the new interview, Normani revealed that her debut studio album is finished, and it will be released this summer. I repeat, THIS SUMMER! “Oh gosh, I’m so freaking excited!” But that wasn’t all Normani revealed. She also discussed the visual aesthetic she’s going for with this debut album era, and it’s not what fans might expect.
She told the outlet, “I’m not always as bubblegum as ‘Motivation’ was, or as bubblegum as how people have perceived me to be… So just imagine the flip side of that. It’s still going to be palatable for a wide audience.” And as for how the album will sound?
Well, Normani said that it would be in line with the aesthetic she described. Normani said, “I naturally gravitate toward eerier, darker sounds… I come from a super pop girl group, but I grew up listening to ’90s R&B… There’s so much space in between, it gives me the opportunity to really play.”
So it sounds like what we’re going to be hearing from Normani is super different from both her Fifth Harmony days and her early solo career. We cannot wait to hear it, and we will keep you updated if we get an exact release date for the summer.
