New single, and it's performed during her Jingle Bell set. Release date still TBA.

She also did another new song called "I Don't Mind", which is more dancey-Pop-ish R&B.



Both songs sound smash though these are exactly what Normani should've released instead of two forgotten Calvin Harris tracks.

She has the worst material out of all the girls. They are going down the wrong route for her as she needs an Impossible by Shontelle kind of song.

No thanks. Even during the 5H days, it's very clear and she & Normani have always wanted to do Urban music - and now that they have more control in their solo career, I'm sure they'll go down that route instead.

Also, notice that during their earlier career, Pop/Urban artists like Bey, JT & Chris Brown always had uptempos as their first two singles, and then a ballad/mid-tempo for their third. And I think her label is aiming for that formula as well.

Ally for me has the worst output of the girls by far. Although so far Dinah has served Fifth Harmony leftovers. This sounds promising though.

Nah, Normani's material so far has been amazing to me. This stuff she previewed sounds better than the 5H leftover song she released recently but she still could come harder.

Ally's collaboration Perfect, with DJ Topic was very nice but it went under the radar. She had the joint second best song after Camilla.

^Y'all better not do my most-played song of 2018 according to Spotify like that. :evil: It's true that Normani's entrance elevated the song to a new level but it's already a great song since the beginning.
