Normani is well on her way to solo stardom and made that abundantly apparent last night at the opening show of the ‘Sweetener Tour.’
For, the Fifth Harmony singer may be the support act on Ariana Grande’s US trek, but she brought a main event slay to her slot.
Backed by four dancers and a full band, the magnetic performer blew the roof off the Times Union Center in Albany, NY.
With the masses getting to know her and an album still incoming, her set skilfully spotlighted hit singles such ‘Love Lies’ and ‘Dancing With A Stranger,’ while also touching on her 5H foundation (with the likes of ‘Worth It’ and ‘Work From Home’) She saluting some of her idols too such as Rihanna and Aaliyah.

Normani just has “IT.” The ever-elusive “IT” that can’t be bought, rented, or stolen.
It makes her ascend that much more compelling and that much more deserved.
And while we’d love an out of the gate slay, we’re loving the slow, steady, and organic approach her team are taking.
The Ari tour spot is genius and exposes her to the exact mass needed to elevate her to the next level.
If looking it her potential as a puzzle, the Urban audience are quite clearly here for her and in many ways serve as her firmest foundation. This venture helps build on that by introducing her brand to a broader audience, hopefully leading to an all-encompassing boom.
Again, exciting times.
