Singer Normani dropped the visuals for her latest single “Motivation” on Thursday. The upbeat track was revealed to be co-written by Ariana Grande in a recent Rolling Stone interview. “It’s a feel good record. I think that everybody will really love it. It was the first opportunity that I had to have fun,” she shared.
Marking her first entirely solo project since Fifth Harmony went on indefinite hiatus, the video opens up with her dreaming about reaching a number one video on 106 & Park. The video has been taking the Internet by storm due to Normani’s impressive moves, which includes everything from back flips on the basketball court, to synched twerking on fences, to sultry choreographed partner dancing.
