Normani spreads her wings as a solo star

Normani has spoken about how liberating it is to be a solo star after being in America's biggest girl group, Fifth Harmony.

Speaking to Fader Magazine, the music star has revealed: "I’m able to go to the studio now and write about ideas that actually mean something to me.

“I am going back to the music that I grew up with that really inspires me. I get to pull from that and incorporate those sounds into this project. It’s not like somebody else sitting in a chair over at the label has a set idea as to who these girls are going to be and us having to go along with that.”

Now that she is a solo artist, she admits that she can also choose who she would like to go into the studio with and that includes collaborations. 

Her Khalid collaboration on Love Lies is set to be followed by one with rapper Missy Elliott.

“I’m supposed to work with Missy Elliott really soon, which I’ll go to Atlanta to do. I think I have two weeks with her. I recently worked with Stargate," she said.

The 22-year-old's solo work will go back to her roots as in where she grew up. Normani revealed: "My Mom was raised in the same house in New Orleans that I was raised in as a little girl. I want to shed light on my truth."
