About Normani

Her first single as a solo artist, “Love Lies” was recorded for the soundtrack to the acclaimed film Love, Simon, reached the top 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and received over 100M views on YouTube. Normani famously spoke out about the racist abuse she receives on social media, which led her to quit Twitter temporarily. Now she’s back much to the excitement of her nearly 2.5M followers, keeping them and her nearly 4M Instagram followers busy, as the talented musician takes her fans around the world from concerts to photoshoots to interviews.
