After causing a stir within her loyal fan base at Lollapalooza for repeating the same set she’s been stunting on Ariana Grande’s tour, Normani has given her following and the industry alike a powerhouse first single + video “Motivation” from her for highly anticipated and forthcoming debut solo album. A truly flexing moment, Normani steps up her vibe game straying far from her all too familiar tracks with Khalid and Calvin Harris, delivering a banger that is just as much about pleasing someone as it is about getting your own while you’re at it.

Having been mentored by Grande and her unmatched circle of bop producing moguls, Normani secures the bag crooning the infectiously ripe chorus “I'ma break you off, let me be your motivation / to stay and give it tonight / And, baby, turn around, let me give you innovation / Hey, 'cause I do it so right.”

Looking at how far Normani has come, there’s no doubt that she’s strategically displaced herself from her former Fifth Harmony reputation by curating every single move, beat, and visual that she makes public exactly what she wants it to be. Considering “Motivation” is technically her first solo single, Normani is more than seasoned to take over the streaming empires and radio waves that are at her fingertips. She’s an artist destined for superstardom.
