Did Normani ruin her hype?

She came with so much hype with Motivation and the Video but then she just disappeared and forgot the song existed and now it’s basically done. I loved the song and thought it could’ve been a hit with a proper push

Yeah. The GP isn't here for her as a solo artist

no even with a push it wouldn't have been a hit

everything from the song to the video looked and sounded dated. it was a cute throwback to what used to work last decade though. good dancer/gymnast + TRL era, that's all people took from the whole thing, the song was a second thought.

it had good playlist positioning and a radio push, right? plus a lot of memes, etc. that's all the promo a song really needs. going on ellen or whatever wouldn't have done much. it sucks that she's kind of back at square one now after that big launch.

Y’all did. Y’all hyped her up for like 5 years saying when she finally goes solo she’ll be Beyoncé, it caught on the blog circuit too, but you can’t really hail someone as the “next” whoever when they don’t have the content that deserves hyping. :doc:

It’s simple. People like the video, people thought the song was OK.  It’s basically what I thought from first listen.   Video was a major hit, song was a moderate hit. 

 

I don’t think she did anything wrong, except not having a follow up already in the can ready....which who knows, maybe she does.  Maybe that’s what her disappearing is about.  

 

“Motivation” did what it was going to do.  Introduce her as a solo artist on the main stage.  She set up the ball, now it’s time to knock out a home run.

The hype that got a debut single to debut at #33 on BBH100

I was told that she was the sole reason LL and DWTS hit the top 10, so I was expecting a Havana sized smash. Imagine my surprise when this flopped. 

 

Big budget 

VMAs

Celeb promo

Viral basketball booty

 

I don't see how she couldve done anything else.

She needs to stop taking social media breaks during eras, I honestly felt like I only heard from her during the VMAs and the Fenty fashion show and thats it.

I feel like she's known more for her dancing skills rather than her songs, she needs to release a true bop

The follow-up single should’ve been announced at least already or released by now.

 

The pre-order for the album should’ve been up already as well w/ a release date in January.

 

But then again, this is RCA we are talking about, they only do good with several artists.

she's done if the next song is not an undeniable smash. her album also needs to be top notch.

She’s following the beyonce path without the propaganda so I expected this.

carve your own path dear

Tbh not the right song. Sounded too much like an Ariana demo that she threw away.

She ruined her "hype" by literally being so boring
