Normani: “I Won’t Be Boxed In”

Published: Wednesday 13th Nov 2019 by Sam

Normani wants it all and she’s unapologetic about it.

Currently hard at work on her debut solo album, the rising star has scored a number of major Pop moments with the likes of ‘Motivation,’ ‘Love Lies,’ and ‘Dancing With A Stranger.’ All of which has many debating on what “could” or “should” be her approach.

Well, the New Orleans native has responded with her take.

Check out what she had to say below:

Via Twitter, she told the world: “I won’t be boxed in. y’all won’t do it to me. I’m not the one”

It’s not immediately apparent what spurred the comment in that moment, but it’s clearly something.

As for what folk can expect from her LP (due early 2020), she recently told V Magazine:

“I am definitely going to be prioritizing real-life experiences and making sure it’s my truth—me as a woman, right now will finally [allow] people. . .to get to know the real me, the real Normani.”

What’s your take on ‘Mani’s comments?

    And just like that ladies and gentlemen, the behind the scenes drama and problems have started

    She has underperformed badly, now she’s fighting with her label and management

    She’s already having creative differences.

    Normani about ti get dropped watch and see.

    She’s gonna start jumping from one label to another like rita ora and tinashe.

      STFU. You’ve ruined the comment section, troll. No one is taking any of the s*** you say seriously. I’m patiently waiting for the day TGJ blocks yo crazy ass.

    Bad to u didnt chart.

    Charlie’s angel soundtrack album tanked at number 32 on the charts

    Motivation fell out the charts even after she released a remix featuring 21 savage.

    Normani may never release a debut album .

    Meanwhile, Camila has unveiled the cover of her second studio album, the follow up to her platinum number 1 debut Grammy nominated album Camila.

    Girl it will flop, nobody checkin for you
    Motivation is annoying

  4. Clarkson November 13, 2019

    She is not a star..

    She has worked with the best producers (max Martin , Calvin Harris) and she still flopped big time

    She has performed at the vma’s, and she still flopped

    She has collaborated with big names in the industry like Arianna Grande, Sam Smith, Khalid, nicki minaj, quack, Calvin Harris, but she still flopped

    All these things cost money, the record label isnt recouping its investment in normani and they will drop her soon

    The entire industry hyped her up and she still flopped. Lol

    Normani gonna joined roc nation, watch and see.

    Chile Normani has potential but… the more she does these interviews and whatnot without anything really concrete to back it up.She might end up another tinashe. Side note* Why is clarkson being continuously allowed to ruin the comment section on every post? If you get rid of that thing its trolls will stop.

  7. Nicky November 13, 2019

    Congrats to Normani. Your first official SOLO single outcharted Crying In Club and Camickys 4 SOLO flops

    • Clarkson November 13, 2019

      Queen Camilla came to slay more number ones. That dark manly Normani can be Camilla’s maid

      • ME YOU US November 13, 2019

        Why be such a triggered weirdo..there is enough space for everyone..being mean wont make her magically lose or u become a successful millionaire..

  8. Clarkson November 13, 2019

    Only 8 comments, normani irrelevant as hell

    Normani fans avoiding this article
    They know she’s over


    • 2bad2bme November 13, 2019

      Because her fans have a job, life and doesn’t do Meth staying up all day and night trolling losing sleep and weight because you don’t have an appetite.

    • Nicky November 13, 2019


      More than Half of Camickys comments are from you and your alter egos

      So what does that prove?


    • Clarkson November 13, 2019

      Yall are deflecting

      Focus on the article, dont focus on me

      Normani already having disagreement with Record executives and management.

      She’s over.

      Camila about to play Madison Square garden and staples centre

      • Nicky November 13, 2019

        Oh so the tickets sold out already???


        What makes you think that Camicky, who will barely scrap 5k first week, will sell out??? I can’t wait for the cancellations.


        Normani is in charge! She’s warming up. Top 40 Solo hit to start. Other girls couldn’t even get a top 40 hit for their first solo song.

    Clarkson’s self hatred express through Normani is sad. Notice how he will talk sense regarding a lot of issues but women in the music industry. Pray for the troll y’all… but make no mistakes – this tweet is directed at you and people like you – Normani will NOT be boxed in. She will find success her own way.

  10. Really November 13, 2019

    That’s exactly what Tinashe said and well….
    I dint think there is anything wrong wuth being boxed in when your just starting out. People know what to expect from you. Imagine Anita Baker (random lol) saying she won’t be boxed in and doing pop rock and rnb , no. Get good at one first and the your fan base will follow as you branch out.

  11. S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. November 13, 2019

    Bye Normani. Come hard with the music and just shut up.

    • Normani. November 14, 2019

  12. Maxx November 14, 2019
