There's so much attention seeking when it comes to Normani's name --even in here -- and while I do believe some people are genuinely disturbed by what Chris Brown's continued success represents (I am when I think about how his music remains ubiquitous post 2009) there is a lot of opportunism and projecting onto Normani when a video cameo is a drop in the bucket and hardly relevant to his past. Do you personally boycott the award shows Chris is at? Did you delete Spotify off your phone because they still make his music available? Did you censure Rihanna for taking him back? Have you written a letter to RCA to reallocate his budget to less problematic artists? If not, then you're being a hypocrite. 

 

The only way the overreaction and singling out of a video cameo makes sense outside of misogyny and other biases, is if you flatter Normani and say that her brand means something more than the dozens of other women (and A list men) who've worked with him. Chris's past actions are coming back up because Normani is "condoning" him as a black woman in "pop" who's had some crossover success, so maybe the visual reminds people of the last time he was with a mainstream black girl...

 

Because it's literally been 13 years of him continuing to be embraced by the urban industry. You can't say she's unsupportable and then be constantly checking for her.

 

At any rate, tell them to announce Candy Paint this week  @Wheresjay and release it next week.

Just scrolled at her IG post and the difference between the comments there to the Twitter ones...The girls are stanning Im screaming:bibliahh::bibliahh:

 

 

Shhhh don't let the girls know. They think she's getting her lashings from the delulu performative activists on twitter when the reality is the audience she's appealing to the most is eating the video up. :sistrens:

IKR. Those same people are going to be still lining up to listen to Candy Paint and give their 2 cents. I'm hollering. :toofunny2:

Interesting that they've been actively making the internet remember Normani and forcing the GP to talk about her. First it was the Josh collab first/second week of June. Then last week, the dating rumours spiked all around. This week there is the CB music video and everyone is again up in her business. We will either get one last random moment for June or the teasing will start next week.

I wonder if she was cut from the Calvin album or if it’s getting released in another fashion? The snippet we heard doesn’t fit the Funk Wave Bounce soundscape (if you listen to Potion or the vol. 1 from 2017.) I wonder if it’s for his side project Love Regenerator instead? It’s odd cause she usually doesn’t tease like that for other people’s projects unless something actually comes out.

I dont care how delusional I sound but theres something special about Normani....when she popped up on that Chris Brown video, the details in her dancing, sensuality. Same way she made me gag when i first watched the WAP video. Shes electrifying.  :wanda:. Im now hyped again for Candy Smash:jonny6:

Ever since that first snippet came out - I saw people tagging it with this name "Love Regenerator" which I have no what is that, but I'm assuming it's another EP? It's kinda weird that she was leaving comments in all of his posts about FWBv2. Maybe she didn't know in which album she was coming? :toofunny3:  it also doesn't make sense, bc that was the first thing he previewed before starting the teasing for this project. Maybe he just used her for clout, but wasn't really putting her in it.

That's true. There's something in her - and that's probably why most of us are here after all these years. She has a spark. She was truly gorgeous in that video, her presence is unmatched. Nowadays, I really couldn't care less about celebrity world outside this website - but when it comes to her? She got me in my feelings occasionally lol I really can't explain it either.

Hopefully CP gets teased by the end of next week. Maybe she’ll do an IG cleanse like she did before Wild Side

It’s a more house influenced side project of Calvin’s:

So then you're just talking to see yourself talk.

 

About the same as the backlash for 

 

Nicki (Only, All Eyes On You, Do You Mind, Love More, Wobble Up, Right By My Side, Take It To The Head)

Drake (No Guidance)

Sevyn Streeter (It Won't Stop)

Teyana Taylor (Do Not Disturb)

Pia Mia (Do It Again)

Big Sean (Play No Games)

Summer Walker (Something Real, Like It)

Rita Ora (Body On Me)

K Michelle (Either Way)

Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes (Look At Me Now)

Justin Bieber (Next To You)

Usher (New Flame)

H.E.R. (Come Thru, Slide)

Ella Mai (Watchamacallit)

Mulatto (Go Crazy)

Dawn Richard (Marvins Room)

Zendaya (Something New)

Agnez Mo

Fat Jo

Trey

Twista

Pitbull

Chloe

 

and the countless other collaborators, media platforms, labels, award shows, tv stations, and radio programs who've upheld his career over the past decade.

 

Everyone can see through the attention seeking antics

 

 

 

I think this, you, and many others in here might be misdirecting your frustrations or anger. This isn’t a troll thread made up so haters can drag Normani, hundreds of those can be found literally everyone else on this site. This is her base where we know a majority of people in here and that they aren’t here to troll. If they feel some type of way, so be it but I don’t think the intent is to “drag” or be “hypocrites”. You can bring up as many other people as you’d like that have collabed with him but I don’t think the people in here really care what Pia Mia does or is associated with if they don’t really stan her or follow her like that. I think when we stan people, we do so bc we think they are better at their craft than most, they excite us the most, like the person they are and thus may hold them to a higher standard.
 

Moral of the story is…. Let’s just try to remember we are all entitled to our opinions and feelings and try not to turn this base into a hostile place. (This isn’t specifically to you, just in general)

And Atrl and Twitter hating her for no reason is proof of that. The fact that we stayed yet the only thing we got is crumbs. At sometimes Im grateful for quality crumbs than quantity reductive music, I know Candy Paint will be quality. She will make us gag again. This CB video just fueled my hunger for music:wanda:

The quality can be there all it wants but if RCA doesn’t believe in it by investing in it causing it to flop, we will continue to stay hungry for music :rip:

 

I just hope rca has a plan. A real one this time

We cant always blame RCA...lots of artists blew up with no excessive promo. These days it takes more than one song to be a star, she needs a body of work to build a formidable audience. If you take a look, only Lil Nas and Olivia blew up with one song. 80% of this generation stars saw stardom after their second album/projects atleast. Normani having this hype is a miracle if you ask me, girl drops on song per year and dips.

 

Big investment or not, the album needs to drop, even if it flops, the GP will pick their song, another thing setting her back. I know there are better songs than Wild Side and Fair in her vault

Literally all I was trying to say (I brought up Ava Max when I meant Pia Mia though).This is base not some random thread of haters and people need to remember it’s mainly fans in here giving fan opinions not blind hate.
 

Anyways, once Candy Paint drops, we won’t be discussing any of this and everyone will be arguing over rollouts and streaming numbers. It’s always going to be a discussion about something and everyone is entitled to post their opinions. :gaycat3:

If any of this mess is part of their “plan” then I wish us luck. What happened to just releasing music?

There’s a twitter “insider” that’s mostly been accurate. Besides sharing HQ snippets, they mentioned there were reshoots and it’s being edited at the moment.
