Those mixtapes Joe forced her to record when she was a teenager don't count :gaycat5:

 

When 19 year old Janet had creative freedom to do whatever she wanted, she was killing it. What is Normani doing in her mid 20s besides releasing random tracks to see which one will stick? She's been hyping her debut for like 3 years now

there's no need to play that game but she definitely became more successful after the success of Thriller allowed her and others to get access to top producers and her artistic talent is why she did well but let's not oversell it when she was still behind many prominent female stars.

 

It's also repulsive to use Normani's age against her as if that is a bad thing.

 

Normani looks to be defining herself so the question is will the GP eventually buy in.

 

Wildside is a good start

Cardi just made history this year with her SOLO #1 song and has the TOP selling RAP song of the year so....

 

I'm not surprised I remember when that poster posted that they became ill when Up went #1. I was shocked because this is an entertainment forum. that post said alot.

Wildside is a good song...it doesn't seem to be an instant hit but this is getting good reviews in terms of quality and could build into a hit long term.

 

and I wouldn't allow myself to feel ill about it not being an instant hit either. I think it'll finish quite well.

If she actually works the single like a true artist breaking with radio tours, actual performances I think the song will perform well. But I think her team will understand now none of that going silent **** anymore, you keep pushing and releasing that album. Get the recognition for releasing a good project and tour, it’s go time 

Basically:coffee2: The good thing is that it's a good song that can connect to a wide audience so it has the foundation set.

Wait, this song isn’t on TTH? :rip: 

 

Its like they want her to flop, her team is so ****ing stupid. 

It is so weird, they invested so much in music video and even got Cardi B feature.

 

But they couldn't spend few more bucks to have it on TTH, when playlisting is the most important thing in streaming era.

Why all the hate for Normani? She's a talented performer - her dancing and presence exceed her peers, she's doing her thing - yall should be rooting for her. it's not like she's an offensive act.

Because the media spent YEARS (most likely paid by her team) telling people they need to love her and that she’s already legendary and the new Beyoncé before she did anything to warrant that kind of praise. 
 

and then Motivation happened and those terrible live performances where it was clear she didn’t care about actual promotion.

Well said. She got hyped up for no reason. Her floppings are so funny

Well, the song isn’t very good, for one. Bland songs + no real identity = no wonder Normani hasn’t really taken off. She’s talented as a performer for sure, but it doesn’t seem like she or anyone on her team has an ear for that hit that will get her where she’s obviously trying to get to. :michael:

I mean, just google “normani is the next beyonce” and you’ll literally see pages of news articles calling her an icon and the next legend over the span of the last 4 years. :rip:
 

and for what?

Janet’s first 2 albums were massive flops and didn’t find her sound until her 3rd so I don’t think she’s a good example about debut albums :skull: 

And we need to get to the debut album first which is the problem with how a lot of these young acts are handled. Organic growth is never the target, just a bunch of failed lead singles and the record label holding them hostage until they smash...

It just sounds like this Board has a weird stigma against Normani compared to her peers. Watch that music video and she clearly has the talent - so it's not made up that people are rooting for her. she's a dark skinned black women - who dont usually have the same mainstream success as their peers. we should be uplifting her talent, not knocking her down (even if you dont feel shes the best voclaist).
