On establishing a more fulfilling career:
“For a long time, I was stressed out about checking boxes like, ‘Is this Black enough? Is this pop enough?’ But music started feeling way better when I just went into the studio with the mentality of being Normani. People will always remember how you made them feel and what a record did for them. My lyrics have more depth, and they’re more intentional and come from a more authentic place, because I now feel more connected to myself than before.”
After a career as part of a pop group it’s easy to understand why Normani initially questioned whether her music was black enough but we’re glad she’s no longer thinking that way. Do you all ever find yourself having these kinds of doubts?
