New Song: Normani & Khalid – ‘Love Lies’

Published: Wednesday 14th Feb 2018 by Sam

Normani and Khalid have unwrapped a Valentine’s Day gift in the form of new single ‘Love Lies.’

Lifted from the ‘Love, Simon’ movie soundtrack, the song arrives following the wave of success Khalid is (still) riding with debut album ‘American Teen.’ It also serves as the first taste of solo material from Normani aside from her Fifth Harmony base.

Introducing the track during its world premiere on Beats 1 radio moments ago, host Zane Lowe notably pointed out that the 21-year-old songbird had the blessing of her bandmates releasing the track.

How does it sound? Listen below…

Hypnotic, arresting, and ready for radio, this sounds like a hit in waiting!

      It’s been reported that Normani is signed to RCA Records and Sony Publishing. OUR GIRL IS COMING TO SLAY!!!

    Hot! Vocally he sounds like a totally different person on this track. ??And Normani sounds AMAZING. I wanna hear more from her.

    REAL TALK. That was AWFUL. I couldn’t get through his auto tuned nasal first verse and by the time I scrolled thru to her vocal it did not get any better – sparse, dull and generic production.

    I don’t even check for Camilla like that but her first two singles are better than this ☕️

      No worries.

      Simply move on to a track you like better if you can not get into the vibe.

      Turn on Havana and spin. #peacelove&goodvibes

  10. dkfa February 14, 2018

    ISSA BOP. These mediocre girls can step aside for Miss Normani!!! Be-yon-ce, Ri-ha-nna, Nor-ma-ni!!! Let’s go

    Yas yes and yasss. Pleasantly surprised. Really feeling this vibe. This is a great departure from H5 sound. Her voice sounds really good here especially considering she’s the weakness vocalist of the group.

    • LB February 14, 2018

      Who the strongest vocalist in the group? Im not into 5H like that so I don’t know.

      • devereaux February 14, 2018

        Just my opinion lol (don’t chop my head off)
        plus this is just a comparison to eachother not to who else is in the indurstry : )

        Ally – power and vocal character (personality)
        Dinah – agility / creativity
        Lauren – consistency (she never sounds far from her studio vocals) and a raw edge
        Normani – smooth lower tones and pretty head tones

        in other news …love this as a first taste for Normani #hereforit

        Although Normani is my fav…. I’ll agree. Ally (range/ live singing/stage presence/but weakest with choreo), Lauren (perfect tone/rawness/soul/ but lazy choreo), Dinah ( 2nd best Dancer in the group/slays adibs/ runs out of breath on solo’s lol) then Normani (head voice is bright/full low tones/out performs everybody/ but relies on the backing track 75% of the time). They all need work but I don’t think she has found her voice yet. I think she’s a pretty good singer she just has to push herself. She’s like a little baby Bey with less vocals lol.

      • LB February 15, 2018

        Wow Ally is the best singer? I always thought she was the “Michelle” of the group especially since her dancing is awful. Imma have to check sis out then.

  12. StarXavi February 14, 2018

    This is super cute. They both sound really good. I love the raspiness they both are giving on the track. Im here for it!

  13. stan February 14, 2018

    so… 5h is no more, i guess?

  14. Barbara ‘Hunnychile’ Perez February 14, 2018

    So good.

  15. Jasmine February 14, 2018

    I’m so happy this girl is putting out solo material. Can’t wait to hear more singles an a debut album.

  16. Your Name February 14, 2018

    Blah. This won’t be a hit….

  17. Carlitos February 14, 2018

    Interesting how you didn’t add “(from Fifth Harmony)” as you do for the other girls that put out their own music. ?
