Normani Kordei is continuing to flex her solo prowess with another creative mash-up.
A month after she covered Drake’s “Fake Love” and “Sneakin,” the Fifth Harmony singer is back with a soulful take on Solange’s “Don’t Touch My Hair” and “Cranes in the Sky.” The result is pure ear candy, as Normani gently weaves the songs together with a soft finger-snapping beat and a flurry of ethereal background vocals. She even reaches those sky-grazing high notes on “Cranes”: no easy feat, for sure.
“I was inspired by Solange's album, A Seat at the Table, from the moment that I heard it,” she told USA Today. “She has clearly taken the time to create a unique body of work and emote through her music from a true place.”
Normani’s latest solo move follows last month’s news that Camila Cabello has left Fifth Harmony to pursue her own music career. While Normani is still very much a part of 5H, it looks like she’s not abandoning her own creative projects either. She told USA Today she’s plotting a “prosperous” 2017, "not only regarding Fifth Harmony and this new chapter together but also my own personal endeavors in and outside of music."
