This breakout singer says solo success is an out of body experience.

Singer Normani is familiar with chart success thanks to her
time in Fifth Harmony, but Normani has shared that the reaction to
her debut solo hit, “Love Lies,” has been “mind-blowing.”

She shared: “Honestly … [it’s] a dream come true.

“I’m so grateful and so blessed and it’s just amazing. For this to be
the first record that kind of introduces me to the world with my own
artistry, aside from who they’ve known to be Normani in Fifth Harmony
for so long, it’s really crazy and mind-blowing.

“It’s kind of like an out-of-body experience, even for me, because
it’s like I can’t believe I actually did that, or I was part of that.”

Although Normani always felt passionately about the record, she wasn’t
entirely certain whether her efforts would lead to chart success.
The singer, whose single also features vocals from Khalid, told
Billboard, “To have a record that I cared so deeply about with Khalid
– he’s one of my closest friends … We knew that the song felt good,
but we didn’t necessarily know … you hope for the best, but you
really don’t know.

“So it’s just really cool to see it soaring and spreading its wings
and doing so amazing and connecting with so many people. It’s been
awesome.”

Meanwhile, Normani has also provided an update on her debut solo
album, saying she’s been like a “kid in a candy shop.”
She said, “Sonically and creatively, I’m able to do absolutely
anything that I wanna do now.

“It’s like a kid in a candy shop. It’s overwhelming sometimes, because
there’s like so much you can do but the options are limitless, so I’m
excited.”
