Normani is ready to show us her wild side!
The 25-year-old singer dropped out of her new collaboration with Cardi B, “Wild Side,” on Friday, and the music video is as sultry as one would expect of the two. Directed by Tanu Muino, the same mind behind Cardi’s fantastic “Up” music video, the new project features Normani surrounded by dancers as she gracefully squirms from room to room. Both the song and the video are reminiscent of R&B from the late 90s and early 2000s, which is appropriate since the song features Aaliyah’s 1996 classic “One In A Million.”
“We can’t keep talking about it / we think about it too much,” Normani croons in the chorus. “We can’t be cautious, I want to go wild / Take me for a ride, boy / Show me your wild side, boy / I know it’s been a while, boy, I want to go wild.”
Cardi brings her trademark bold sensuality to the video, appearing nude on a round stage while holding tightly to the chains hanging from the ceiling. She and Normani hug at one point, while Cardi raps to her audience about how she “can do it all.”
“You could probably suck on a watermelon with a straw,” he continues.
Normani revealed in a statement that she had already been rehearsing for about three weeks preparing for the video “when Cardi first heard the album.”
“She really introduced herself to me and brought this record to life by simply doing what Cardi does best,” Normani commented. “I love that woman and will be eternally grateful.”
Of course, this isn’t the first time the duo have collaborated on a music video. Normani made a cameo appearance in Cardi’s video for her smash hit “WAP,” which also featured Megan Thee Stallion and cameos from Rosalía, Mulatto, Sukihana, Rubi Rose, and more. It is obvious that the two have formed a close bond over the years and Cardi fully supports the singer’s career. “I feel like this is Normani’s big comeback and I want to be treated like it’s his birthday,” said the rapper. he told his fans Thursday.
Normani is still working on his highly anticipated debut solo album and has released five singles to date, including 2019’s “Motivation,” Sam Smith’s duet. “Dancing with a stranger, “and the collaboration of Khalid”,Love lies. “The singer has yet to announce the album’s release date or tell fans if” Wild Side “is the precursor to an album reveal. But how Cardi tweeted before the video came out, “The world is ready for Normani’s supremacy!”
