Normani (ft 6LACK) - Waves | Song Review

Normani is an American singer, songwriter and dancer, best known as a member of the girl group Fifth Harmony, which was formed on the second season of The X Factor US in 2012. In 2017, she was a contestant in season 24 of Dancing with the Stars.

Her first single as a solo artist, the duet 'Love Lies' with singer Khalid recorded for the soundtrack of the movie Love, Simon, reached number 9 on the US Billboard Hot 100. She is currently working on her debut solo album.

After collaborating with a few artists, she has finally released her debut single called 'Waves' from her debut album which is rumoured to be released early next year! This song features 6LACK who is is an American singer, songwriter, and rapper from Atlanta, Georgia.

Normani previously performed this track during her set at TIDAL X in Brooklyn in October 2018.

The song sees Normani going through the motions of a rocky and toxic relationship. Whilst the on-off relationship isn’t good for her, the songstress finds it impossible to pull away and keeps going back for more.

‘Waves’ shows off Normani’s soul-filled vocals whilst finding her own sound as a solo artist. I can see Normani being a worldwide sensation; may be taking the same path Beyonce did when Destiny's Child parted their ways.

Delivering emotion through her vocals that can make people relate to her feelings and thoughts. Adding the extra verse by 6LACK really works and fits perfectly on this track and they bounce off each other which is exactly what you want you to want when collaborating on a song together.

This song has a really cool vibe. I think it is more of a chilling in bed kind of song than a club banger. I can see a remix being released of this song and it would sound so good in nightclubs.

I really like this song and I am very excited about Normani's solo career - as I am for all the ex-Fifth Harmony members.

Overall Rating:
★★★★☆

Prodigal - When We Bleed

Prodigal is an Alternative Pop/Rock artist from Finland. The nature of his music is to be an eccentric mix of all the different styles he listens to and creates something catchy, immediate and current out of it all. His new single 'When We Bleed' was released independently ahead of his upcoming debut album. 'When We Bleed' reflects on a world where every decision and action seems to be motivated by blatant narcissism of some kind. Trying to navigate these odd times, the song tries to find relief in numbers and the fact that for better or worse, we're never really alone in trying to make sense of it all.
