On “Checklist,” which features a guest verse from Wizkid, Normani gets flirtacious over an afrobeat-inspired production. “Baby, you’re a blessing wit’ it on / Come teach me a lesson wit’ it on / Yeah, I see you,” she sings on the upbeat track.
For “Slow Down,” Normani tapped singer/songwriter Jessie Reyez to co-write the track. The two collaborated together on Reyez’ “Body Count (Remix)” with Kehlani. “Everybody, everybody slow down / Everybody be on the low down / And it’s cool if you wanna be slow, no, no doubt / Remember that night in your old house? / Remember that time when you broke down? / Seeing that you’re happy, that you dropped that chain / No I’m not, I’m not the one to hold down,” Normani sings in the first verse.
The 22-year-old singer went to her Instagram to express her excitement about her two new records. “Throughout the process of working on my album I have gotten the opportunity to get in the room with some of the most talented human beings everrrrr like ever ever !!!! thank you so much to the genius @calvinharris and to the magic behind these fyeee records @whereisstarrah @jessiereyez @wizkidayo love y’all billions. YAAAAY MUSIC as my A&R @tunji would say #NormaniXCalvinHarris,” she wrote.
Tomorrow night (Oct. 23), Normani will perform at Tidal X in Brooklyn alongside Lil’ Wayne, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Anderson .Paak, Teyana Taylor and more.
