On Thursday night, the Fifth Harmony alum dropped the video for her debut solo single “Motivation” and it’s straight fire. Paying tribute to iconic 2000s videos and showcasing Normani’s crazy acrobatic, hip-popping dance moves, the “Motivation” video will dispel any doubts about the strength of her star power. Watch it above.
The video begins with a young Normani watching BET’s countdown video show 106 & Park. Dreams come to fruition when the scene cuts to Normani recreating Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love” video. The silky-smooth track co-written by Ariana Grande is all about enticing a paramour. Needless to say, Normani’s head-spinning choreography surely gets the job done. An homage to turn-of-the-millennium dance clips by the likes of Destiny’s Child, J. Lo, Ciara and Britney Spears, Normani shows us that she’s next in line for the pop-star throne.
Since its drop, “Motivation” has fans and celebrities alike freaking out, with an unending outpouring of love and frankly obsessive stanning. Check out some of the best reactions below.
