Normani Kordei on solo album: 'I want this to completely represent who Normani is'
Normani Kordei spoke about branching out on her own to embark on a solo career on Beats 1 on Apple Music earlier this week.
Promoting her new single, 'Love Lies' with Khalid, and her upcoming debut solo album, she said: "It’s always kind of scary, especially because for the past six years, Fifth Harmony's all we’ve ever known," Kordei said of the pressure of releasing a solo track.
"So, every time we put something out individually, it’s like, 'Oh shoot! All eyes are on me!'"
Speaking about her new album, she said: "Honestly, I feel like I’ve experienced a lot in the last six years, so I feel like just getting all of that out. Whatever comes to mind, whatever I’m going through at the moment, I just want this to be an album that completely represents who Normani is. And for some people, it may be the first time."
Speaking about Khalid, she said: "It’s cool, because Khalid and I have been friends for a minute now. It’s not necessarily an A&R or somebody saying, 'Hey, you! I'm sticking you in a room. Go make a dope record.
"I remember him telling me, he was like, 'Yo, I want this to be my favorite song. Let's not even go into it trying to create a hit. If it's gonna be, it's gonna be.' But it's genuinely my favorite song at the moment right now."
She added: "And that’s like, my proudest moment. When I can listen to a record over and over again."
Fifth Harmony released a statement on March 19 announcing that they will be taking a hiatus after finishing their contractual committments at the end of this year.
