I hope this will be the record to really kickstart her solo career and get her name out there.

Unusual pairing though, perched for how it’ll sound.

The beat sounds disco-ish but we'll see. Can't stand Sam Smith's voice though.

The beat sounds HOT. It's definitely got an 80s influenced Disco meets Calvin Harris Funk Wav Bounces vibe about it. The full song should be a smash.

So, I'm guessing he's re-releasing "The Thrill of it All" or is it for new album?

We don't know yet, but I think it would be a better move to move on with a new album (if this becomes a hit, otherwise I can see this ending up as a stand alone single).

I just do not know if Normani's voice can outshine Sam's voice though.

I do love Love Lies , however, Khalid's voice was kinda the lead in that. I feel like she will get a hit with this but also at the same time... will be lost in the thrill of it all

That's why I wish they would just release a proper Normani lead single.

I agree. I'm afraid she'll get the Tinashe treatment as in people don't know who she is as an artist - people know her but they don't know 'her' at the same time idk if it makes sense.

I'd say she should kinda stick with the Beyonce 2.0 image she has now. It's not working for certain artists but I do have a strong feeling that it MIGHT work for her.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this the same formula that Camilla tried? She had a few features before Crying In The Club and then the single that gave her a hit was a feature. I do think Normani's team isn't sure of her sound as yet (which is apparent by the songs she has released so far). Whatever happened to those Calvin singles?

Her features were not exactly THAT bigger than her though in the pop market. I just feel like Sam might overshadow her with this.

It will become like abi said an "all my friends" situation. Hit but who exactly was on the song

Well since this is a duet it might work for her. If she can get a couple of hits like Love Lies first and go to her lead single after that, it could work. Hell even if her lead single has another feature people will still know her after three potential hits. Tinashe was one of 3 artists on All My Friends, if she had gotten another successful feature after that, things might have been different for her too. (Let's wait first how this sounds though :lol: )
