Normani is checking a few things off of her “Checklist” starting with the release of her two-track project with powerhouse producer Calvin Harris. The former Fifth Harmony member previously tested the waters as a solo artist with hit song "Love Lies" feat. Khalid, but this time around, Normani dives in head first, making a splash with two new songs “Checklist” & “Slow Down”.

The first track “Checklist” illustrates Kordei’s range as an artist. Offering fans a new sound, Kordei enlist the help of Nigerian born singer/rapper Wizkid to bring authentic reggae flavor to the track. Fully committed to the sound, Normani gives us her best Caribbean accent singing “Straight up out of heaven wit' it uh / Baby, you're a blessing wit' it uh / Come teach me a lesson wit' it uh."

The second track “Slow Down” starting off with a slower tempo, angelic vocals, and piano notes quickly goes from possible ballad to definite dance rave. The song has a more familiar sound not only for Normani, but you can also hear Harris’s signature EDM electropop sound throughout the song. With these two tracks that have two very different sounds, Normani has shown that musically she is multi-layered And we look forward to seeing each layer pulled back.
