NEW MUSIC: NORMANI | FAIR
Twenty-five-year-old singer/songwriter Normani is taking a new direction in her music with her new single “Fair.” The song is her most deeply personal work to date. Harv produces “Fair.” Harv did “Peaches” for Justin Bieber last year and has worked with Omarion, Sevyn Streeter and more. As a Fifth Harmony alum, Normani has been known for bright, upbeat songwriting since her days in the girl group. Now, she is revealing a more emotional side. Normani said of the song, "This song really captures me in one of my most vulnerable moments," Normani shared on Instagram yesterday. “Sharing this record makes me uncomfortable because you have never really seen me in this light. Definitely aware that you might feel like you don’t know much about me but that’s only because it’s what makes me feel protected.” Normani acknowledged that a ballad is probably not what her fans expected from her first release since last summer. However, it is a musical challenge she feels ready to take on. Since Fifth Harmony’s hiatus in 2018, Normani has released several singles, including “Motivation” and “Wild Side.” These songs feature fun, sexy lyrics and ultimately uplifting sounds. “Fair” is about Normani’s difficult emotional journey after a breakup— a stark contrast from her previous work. "Fair" arrives ahead of an upcoming debut solo album, which is due to be released very soon, it has been highly anticipated by fans for many years.
