Normani’s ‘Checklist’ Slays Out Of The Gate On Spotify

Published: Sunday 28th Oct 2018 by Sam

Normani is ticking all the boxes on her solo rise.

And the latest win looks to have come in the form of new single ‘Checklist.’

The Calvin Harris collaboration, which also features Wizkid, arrived this week with ‘Slow Down’ as part of a double dose of dynamite.

Both songs were greeted with applause, but it seems ‘Checklist’ is receiving the hottest response. Especially on streaming giant Spotify.

Details below…

As at writing, the flavourome jam is is nearing 5 million plays on the industry leading platform.

Impressively, it’s currently picking up almost a million plays a day.

The out of the gate success is powered by placements on much sought after playlists such as Todays Top Hits.


With streaming now the primary means of consumption, it’s great to see the song performing well on that format.

And while radio and downloads will make clear the song’s commercial potential, it’s chances are looking good at present. Very good.

    I hope she does well. She doesn’t have the best voice, but I always thought she had the most star quality out of all of her group and she comes across as confident but likeable

    Well duh bc her team/label paid for it to be on the biggest playlist on the platform. Even then it’s been gradually falling… howvever both songs are drastically free falling on itunes where you can actually see who’s buying…, told y’all Love Lies success came from Khalid

      lmaooo then why did khalid’s new song by himself fall even faster and lower? lmfaoooo

    I pray she does well. Y’all love to come on here and talk about how we don’t need other black female artist other than Rihanna and Beyoncé but turn around and don’t even support.

    I might talk my mess and throw my shade but I still spend my coins and support these girls. Even Ciara I purchase’DDD 2 our 3 of her singles.

      I, too, purchased Normani and Ciara. I want some new girls to have some spotlight…

  7. Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 28, 2018

    Her vocals are avg but she’s a decent all around talent. But still not very exciting or groundbreaking.

    • Xoxo October 28, 2018

      100000% agree

    I have a song on Spotify and spent $100 to get it placed on playlist. The curators are the ones making the streams increased. I doubt if these numbers are organic.
