Normani, babygirl, what is you doin’?


Sometime last month I tweeted a backhanded joke, chiding that her recent presence on social media aligned more with that of an influencer than recording artist or “pop perfectionist…”

L-R: SZA, Megan Thee Stallion and Normani for Rolling Stone.

“Normani is totally next level in a young Britney Spears sense: she’s a gifted vocalist and even better gymnast, the energetic essence of ’90s and Y2K vigor absent from today’s bracket of new pop artists.”

Normani’s “Motivation” music video.

“Rather eerily, this whole situation reminds me of Tinashe’s own rise and widely publicized fall with her label — which also just so happened to be RCA.”
