This latest release is not the first time Cardi B and Normani have worked together; Normani made a cameo in Cardi B’s video for her infamous smash hit “WAP. ”
Speaking about the new track and working with Cardi B, Normani reveals, “I had already been in rehearsal for about three weeks preparing for the video when Cardi heard the record for the first time. She really showed up for me and brought this record to life by simply doing what Cardi does best. I love that woman down and I’m forever grateful.”
“Wild Side” follows Normani’s showstopping single “Motivation,” which she performed on the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs), and her two Top 40 #1 smash hit collaborations “Love Lies” with Khalid and “Dancing with a Stranger” with Sam Smith. Both collaborations consecutively won her iHeart Radio Music Award’s “Titanium Award.” Her single “Waves” featuring 6lack earned Normani her first solo win at the MTV VMAs for “Best R&B Video.” She’s also garnered numerous nominations throughout the years from award shows such as Billboard Music Awards, Soul Train Music Awards, NAACP Image Awards, People’s Choice Awards and more.
Normani continues to make her mark in the industry. She joined Ariana Grande on her Sweetner World Tour, performed at festivals such as Lollapalooza, and performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Billboard Music Awards with 6lack and Khalid respectively. She’s graced multiple magazine covers including Rolling Stone, Billboard, FADER, Cosmopolitan, Teen Vogue, Wonderland, Women’s Health Magazine and more. Recently, she was a part of W Magazine’s Music Issue. Normani’s scope has no bounds; she emerged into the beauty/fashion world being named Urban Decay’s Global Citizen and a Brand Ambassador for Savage X Fenty, where she was also featured in their exclusive fashion show on Amazon Prime. Normani is signed to Keep Cool/RCA Records and is managed by Brandon Silverstein (S10 Entertainment, Management Division).
Normani’s star power continues to rise and she shows no signs of stopping. Stay tuned for more music from Normani coming soon.
