    Her proper lead single



    Written by Ariana, Max Martin and Ilya. And you can tell.

    I like it quite a lot - very immediate, even if it might burn out fast

    I like it! She's still slightly tainted by her association with Sam SPIT Smith but I like her.

    This is great. The video definitely elevates it further, she looks like a star (even if the half-hearted, sort of miming was occasionally slightly distracting).

    This is SO SO SO SO GOOD. The internet is rooting for her, and the industry seem desperate for her to land so I really hope the general public finally buy in to her as a solo star, although I’m getting Tinashe part 2 vibes.

    It’s so weird that Fifth Harmony seem LIGHT YEARS away now. I’m sure most people don’t even realise Camila or Normani came from the band.

    There’s a huge gap for an artist like her since Whitney and Alexandra Burke have abdicated, I’m not sure what they can do next if this isn’t at least a modest hit.

    Cute track. Imagine if would be better with the live instruments were more front and centre.

    She clearly has charisma for days, and the choreo is killer.

    i put this on yesterday (only realised she was in fifth harmony a couple of months ago, so i was kinda rooting for her to outdo her bland ex-bandmate) but i couldn't get through it. i don't know. i just don't care and she looks cheap and tacky as fuck.

    what year is it, @normani? what year is it???

    I’m not sure how’s much of this was live but she went big with the performance

    That outfit reveal was a bit of a battle. I'm not sure about so much mauve on one stage either.

    god, that reveal must have been awful for both of them but it distracted me from how mediocre the song is and the taste level which doesn't even deserve the energy to be questioned.

    The performance was surprisingly mediocre. She moved well, of course, but there was really nothing exciting going on at all. I'm surprised they didn't put together something more exciting. And the backing track glitches were pretty unfortunate.

    she's at least INTERESTING and makes you look her way so...
    hopefully she finds a much better song as a second single.

    Well it appears ABSOLUTELY NOBODY is talking about her VMA performance. Poor Normani.

    Oh I just (very) belatedly realised she went in at number 33 first week in the States. That's QUITE A GOOD DEBUT, no?

    I think that’s a good debut for her.

    And this remains a BOP.

    Oh my word it does sound like Check On It. Also a bop though.

    IS THAT IT for this then

    It feels like all the hype has now truly evaporated

    I'm just not sure the song is really enough of a moment. It's good and might grow for a while on radio and stuff. but they should push out something bigger soon and hope it becomes more of a streaming smash.

    I'm sure that's what people were saying when she released Waves :D
