Normani Named First Brand Ambassador For Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty

Published: Thursday 21st Nov 2019 by Sam

Normani is making major moves and doing so with a little help from Rihanna.

For, weeks after rocking RiRi’s Savage x Fenty fashion show, the rising star has been tapped as the growing label’s first ever brand ambassador!

More info after the jump…

Trumpeting the announcement, the ‘Motivation’ maven posed it up in the lingerie line and spoke to Vogue about how the deal came about.

On How The Deal Came About:

“I was very excited and really honored, especially that the ask came from Rihanna herself. I know that this is her passion project, something she genuinely and wholeheartedly believes in and cares about, and the fact that she wanted me to be a part of that meant a lot to me. She is somebody I’ve looked up to for a very, very long time. She’s had so much influence on me in terms of pop culture and as a woman, but also in terms of how she’s able to do things gracefully while being cutting edge, being bold, pushing the needle, and changing the narrative.

I think that being a part of Savage X Fenty is an amazing opportunity for me to show women that I’m also here for them too. I love how inclusive the brand is. Being a part of the show and being able to have the opportunity to dance and do what I love was so powerful. It was great to be among so many amazing human beings who deserve to be celebrated because they’re all beautiful—all shapes, all sizes. The show represented everybody. I just love how inclusive [the brand] is and how it gives everybody the opportunity to feel sexy and beautiful and empowered—which is everything that I stand for as well. I thought it would be the perfect partnership.

On What She Wants People To Take Away From The Campaign:

 “I want all individuals to feel empowered and to embrace who they truly are. I don’t always wake up the most confident, but I think that’s why Savage X is so important. Being around so many beautiful women and so many beautiful individuals at the show gave me the confidence that I needed to go out there and let my light shine. To the people who see this campaign I would say: Believe in yourself, know that there’s only one you. I wake up not confident sometimes and Savage X gives me the opportunity to feel great, empowered, fearless, and beautiful. So you should definitely cop your lingerie! Also! Do it for yourself, not for anybody else. Last night I wore mine and I was like, “This is real cute just for going to sleep, but for myself!” Then you wake up happy.

On Her Debut Album & 2020 Plans:

“I sure hope it’s a big year. What I’m looking forward to most is releasing my album. I’m really excited for my fans to hear it because they’ve been very patient with me and they’ve been there since the beginning of my journey—and my new fans too … I’ve been using these new sessions as therapy and as an opportunity for me to know myself in a different way. I can’t wait for everybody else to be able to tap into that and get to know the real me.”


This is such a slay!

We’re loving the camaraderie and the way the Rihanna’s of the world are embracing ‘Mani.

    Very ashy

    This is embarrassing as hell

    Normani team, is this the direction u guys are going with her career.
    She should be releasing new music instead of posing in her bra and pànties.

    I don’t blame her tho, girl gotta eat.
    all the sales from motivation is going to Arianna Grande and max Martin cause they wrote the song.

      Shut it Clarkson Troll! Stop spewing your idiotic nonsensical opinions in the comments old man! This aint the 90s when artists had to be great singers or dancers to be successful. Gone are the days when artists have to put all their eggs in one basket so STFU u stupid old fossil! U are beyond dumb!

  2. Only facts November 21, 2019

    A star!

  3. Clarksooon November 21, 2019

    Grammys paid her dust
    American music awards paid her dust
    Soul train awards paid her dust
    People choice award paid her dust

    How many L is she gonna take this year.

    All that Twitter hype and she couldn’t score a Grammy nomination. Smh

    As I said earlier normani will not have a successful music career, she will be a personality like nicole scherzinger or teyana Taylor.
    She will end up a judge on x factor or the voice

    Wanna bet, she’s gonna start dating an athlete or a rapper for clout.

      Normandi is on your mind every day. Get a life

  4. Clarksooon November 21, 2019

    the growing label’s first ever brand ambassador!”

    Drag queen Naomi smalls was a fenty brand ambassador before normani and naomi (a dude) has a better body than normani.

    When is she gonna carry her natural hair, always wearing weaves, she probably bald.

    • Mother November 21, 2019

      Normani has you pressed hunni ?? 3 posts in succession! Her power!

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        If only she could use that “power” to get a Grammy nom.

        Nobody in the music industry is gonna take her seriously if she keeps stripping down to her underweaŕ

      • Mother November 21, 2019

        her power definitely has you writing a plethora of mini dissertations on a blog about her though. Pressed over someone who has no idea you even exist, how tragic ??

  5. Clarksooon November 21, 2019

    Camila cabello is a model for Guess Girl (signed 2017) and Skechers (2017).

    In January 2018 she became a spokeswoman for L’Oreal and in July 2018 L’Oreal released her Havana makeup collection.

    and she did this with her clothes on.
    Her power

  6. Dr November 21, 2019

    And still can’t get a hit s** don’t sell in her case ???

  7. D’Angelo November 21, 2019

    Whewwww Work sis, make that f****** money…

  8. biancacook November 21, 2019

    im guessing ppl forget what artist development. she’s building a fan base. of course the music isn’t selling she doesn’t have one yet. rihanna just gave her a platform.

    • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

      Girl this is not how to build a fan base as a musician

      As a musician u build a fan base but releasing dope songs.

      Look at fka twigs or Tyler the creator, they both have small but strong fan bases and they got these fan bases by realising dope songs and albums and visuals even tho many of these songs didnt even chart.

      If normani was a reality star, fine this will be good for her brand but she’s not, she’s an artiste.

      who is going to connect with these kind if imagery in 2019. Sèx is everywhere thanks to the internet, being overtly sèxy doesnt sell records anymore.

    • Tori November 21, 2019

      Girl please, you want us to believe that you know so much about the music industry yet you have trouble completing full sentences and don’t know the proper way to use the space button? Go stream “South of the Boarder”, yet another Camila flop from this year. Damn, we can make a play list of those!

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        Why south of the boarder? That’s not her song

        I rather stream senorita, 980 million streams so far. About to hit 1 billion in some few days.

        Camila will be the first female lead artist to with 2 songs to have 1 billion streams each

        Havana- 1.3 billion streams
        Seniorita- 980 million streams

      • Tori November 21, 2019

        NO, NO, NO Sweetness, we just went over this. You can’t pick and choose what features you want to claim. She’s a featured artist in “South of the Boarder” just like “Senorita” and SOTB FLOPPED. CLING TO THAT! Where was all her monthly subscribers? Don’t be upset that she has the bodily of a 7th grader with an eating disorder, the only deals she can pull are Sketchers and a make up deal, ?????????

      • Clarksooon November 22, 2019

        U dont pick an artistes least successful song to judge their career dummy

        Pretty hurts didnt chart, so does that mean Bey is a flop?

        Wooble didnt chart does that mean nicki is a flop?

        South of the boarder has more streams than any normani song.

        Dumb àss.

  9. Clarksooon November 21, 2019

    billboard names “Havana” as one of the songs that defined the decade.

    Her power

    Normani we are still waiting for ur Havana cause motivation ain’t it.

    • Dr November 21, 2019

      Exactly she will never get a hit like this so Camila wins ha ha

    • You Tried November 21, 2019

      Because billboard said it’s true?? Pls stfu nobody cares about that song anymore and nobody cares about her new singles …

  10. Suxmycockiness ? November 21, 2019

    Yaaasss! Somebody finally styled her the right way. She looks STUNNING! Look at that beautiful chocolate skin! ? This is a great move. ?

  11. D’Angelo November 21, 2019

    Clark’s on is sooooooo f****** pressed that he has to spam normani’s post with his BS…

    Sis doing her f****** thing but leave it to this dumb f*** to come and try to ruin the party. We all know that you’re a troll, everyone on the sit knows that you’re a troll… sooo Hello Troll have a good day.

  12. Detruth November 21, 2019
