After announcing her new label deal with Keep Cool/RCA Records, Normani wasted no time with getting nothing but the best for her debut solo album. As her duet single “Love Lies” with Khalid climbs up the charts, the 5H member recruits the help of Missy Elliott for her debut LP.
Speaking with Billboard, Normani explained how the collaboration happened. “I’ll be working with Missy Elliott soon, and the fact that she’s even willing to take a chance on me as a new artist means a lot, considering that she’s the one I’ve looked up to since I was a little girl,” she explained. “I literally remember dancing in my grandmother’s living room to all of Missy Elliott’s records. She’s such an innovator, and there’s no one else out there like her. The fact that she is willing to work with me…I’m like, ‘Who? Me?’”
While no release date has been set yet, Normani is hoping for a late 2018 or early 2019 release. While making her promo rounds Normani recently stopped by HOT 97 to talk about Fifth Harmony’s hiatus, metting Beyonce and more.
