Normani Exudes '90s Vibes on Solo Single "Motivation"
February 20, 2019
Normani is giving off serious '90s vibes in the video and song for her new single "Motivation." The clip starts with a younger version of herself watching BET's 106 & Park and finding that she happens to have the No. 1 single on the countdown. The rest of the video finds a grown-up Normani dancing in various locales (e.g., her neighborhood, in the rain) while her dancers rock '90s fashions. "Motivation" itself boasts some retro hip-hop and R&B beats, which makes sense, as fellow '90s hip-hop/R&B super-fan Ariana Grande helped write the tune. Rolling Stone also points out that "Motivation" is Normani's "first non-collaboration since embarking on a solo career" after Fifth Harmony went on hiatus.
