Fans are wild with anticipation for Normani and Cardi Bâ€™s new single â€œWild Side,â€ which will drop this Friday (July 16).
Both iconic artists posted on social media the gorgeous cover for the single, depicting them each reclining nude on a giant pearly shell with their long flowing hair draping over their bodies. Some mermaid vibes right there.
Fans have long speculated that new music, possibly even a long-awaited solo album, from Normani would be dropping this year. Earlier this week, the former Fifth Harmony member archived all her Instagram posts except a short video from February of her sunbathing in a gold bikini, captioned â€œknow itâ€™s been awhile.â€ There was suspicion that the song playing in the background is a snippet of â€œWild Side.â€
As a result of the major announcement of the upcoming single, Cardi B and Normani were trending on Twitter worldwide. Cardi tweeted in response to a fan account, â€œThe world is ready for Normani supremacy!!!â€
Normani excitedly responded, â€œOkay, sooooo I just watched the video again. Sis, what the fuck.â€
Both artists previously collaborated last year in â€œDiamonds,â€ the lead single for the soundtrack to the film Birds of Prey. Normani has released five singles, most of which are collabs: â€œLove Liesâ€ with Khalid, â€œWavesâ€ with 6lack, and â€œDancing with a Strangerâ€ with Sam Smith. â€œMotivation,â€ which was released in 2019, remains her only solo single.
With so much excitement from fans and hints from Normani, perhaps we will get to see a solo album dropping soon. In the meantime, â€œWild Sideâ€ is out tonight at midnight.
