Just last week, Normani announced signing with Keep Cool/RCA Records, a new joint venture co-founded by RCA senior VP of A&R Tunji Balogun. It’s the first major step toward the release of her new upcoming album, and the songstress said that it was a natural fit. There is no date set for the release of her new upcoming Album, but she is hoping for late 2018 or early 2019. But the reason for all the buzz today is that Normani announced working with Missy Elliott and Khalid on new solo music. See below her comments during a interview on Billboard about working with Missy and Khalid.
“I’ll be working with Missy Elliott soon, and the fact that she’s even willing to take a chance on me as a new artist means a lot, considering that she’s the one I’ve looked up to since I was a little girl,” she said. “I literally remember dancing in my grandmother’s living room to all of Missy Elliott’s records. She’s such an innovator, and there’s no one else out there like her. The fact that she is willing to work with me…I’m like, ‘Who? Me?’
“[Khalid] is like my spirit animal,” she laughed. “We had no idea what we wanted the song to sound like. We had no expectations going in. We knew it was going to be special because of the connection we had as friends, but we didn’t know about the sound. It all happened so organically. It was just one big jam session.”
