Normani is back with another new single following last year’s “Wild Side” with Cardi B. It’s called “Fair” and it’s produced by Harv. Normani co-wrote the new song with Abby Keen, Bernard “Harv” Harvey, and Felisha King Harvey. And, to go with its release, Normani performed “Fair” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Hear the song and watch the performance below.
“This song really captures me in one of my most vulnerable moments,” Normani said in a press statement. “Sharing this record makes me uncomfortable because you have never really seen me in this light. Definitely aware that you might feel like you don’t know much about me but that’s only because it’s what makes me feel protected. I am really forcing myself to let go here. This is huge for me and hopefully this piece of art resonates. Love is beautiful yet so soooo terrifying. I adore you guys to the moon and back.”
Normani released “Wild Side” in July, with Kaytranada later remixing the track. She and Teyana Taylor debuted the song on TV in a Janet Jackson–indebted display at the 2021 MTV VMAs. The track followed “Diamonds,” her Megan Thee Stallion collaboration that appeared on the soundtrack for DC film Birds of Prey. Also in 2021, Normani made a cameo in Baby Keem and Kendrick Lamar’s music video for the single “Family Ties.”
In 2019, Normani teamed up with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj for the Charlie’s Angels track “Bad to You” and released her massive hit “Motivation,” which received a remix with 21 Savage. Read about the “Motivation” visual in Pitchfork’s feature, “The 20 Best Music Videos of 2019.”
