Best-known as one of the four members in the multi-platinum group Fifth Harmony, Normani began to explore a new musical direction on her debut solo single “Love Lies” with Khalid. Since its release, the song has been streamed over 650 million times, the official video has over 137 million views on YouTube, and the song went double platinum. “Love Lies” held the #1 spot at Top 40 radio for two consecutive weeks and spent 51 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 (peak #9).
In 2019, Normani teamed up with Sam Smith to release their smash hit “Dancing With A Stranger.” Entertainment Weekly observed, “Sam Smith and Normani have teamed up to soundtrack your weekend festivities.” Billboard said, “They’re a smoldering combo, and they’ve delivered something fiery with ‘Dancing With A Stranger’…” The song immediately began climbing the charts upon release and scored Normani her second consecutive #1 single at Top 40 Radio in the US.
While in the process of recording her debut solo album, Normani has collaborated with some of today’s top artists including Sam Smith, Calvin Harris, Khalid, Quavo, 6lack, Jessie Reyez, Kehlani, and more. In a feature with The FADER last summer, they proclaimed, “the list of people lining up to work with her is insanely impressive” and that “Normani’s new sound is grown and sexy.”
Outside of the recording studio, Normani is the Global Ambassador to the American Cancer Society and works with A Place Called Home, lending her name and time to various events. She is also a Diversity Ambassador for The CyberSmile Foundation, a multi-award winning anti cyberbullying non-profit organization.
