Normani has dropped the lead single Motivation from her forthcoming album and it’s sounds exactly like her official arrival.
This is the first song Normani has released as a solo artist without a feature although it has a superstar team behind it. Normani co-wrote the song with Ariana Grande, Max Martin, Ilya Salmanzadeh and Savan Kotecha.
Not many get a Max Martin co-write before they drop their first album but Normani’s superstar potential is unmatched.
Motivation is a perky, horn-driven cut full of expert vocal runs and flourishing harmonies. It’s in-your-face but not overwhelmingly so, sounding slick and full of personality.
