It’s Normani’s time to shine. Just in time for summer, the former Fifth Harmony singer takes it to the “Wild Side” on her new single featuring Cardi B. The sexually empowering anthem, co-produced by Starrah and Jonah Christian, pays homage to ’90s R&B with a sample of Aaliyah’s “One in a Million.”
Normani turns up the heat on the seductive bop. “Take me for a ride, boy / Show me your wild side, boy / Know it’s been a while, boy / I wanna get wild,” she sings, while Cardi comes through with a nasty verse (“I can do it all / I can probably suck a watermelon through a straw”).
In the video, directed by Tanu Muino (“Up”), Normani shows out with her sexy moves and stunning looks before getting up close and naked with a pregnant Cardi in one very steamy scene.
“I feel like this is Normani’s big comeback and I want you guys to treat it like it’s her birthday,” said Cardi. “This song is amazing and I’m just so proud of her. You guys are gonna see Normani in a different light.”
Fans have been anxiously awaiting new music from Normani, whose last single “Motivation” was released in August 2019. She is now readying her long-awaited solo debut album.
