Normani’s ‘Motivation’ Earns Half A Million Dollars On Spotify

Published: Thursday 21st Nov 2019 by David

Normani is a bonafide megastar.

Hit the button below to find out why she is fast-becoming one of the highest-earning musicians in popular music.

The entertainer rose to fame as a member of the group Fifth Harmony and has since become an R&B it-girl endorsed by Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland, Rihanna and Janet Jackson.

Powered by a predominantly African-American fanbase, the rising star has now learned that the singles she launched to support her debut effort are generating large sums of cash on Spotify.


Today, ‘Motivation’ became the latest Normani tune to reach a financial milestone.

With 118 million spins to date, the track has earned just under half a million dollars ($475,088 to be exact) and sees its earnings glide over the 1 million marker once the money it has generated on Apple Music, Deezer, YouTube Music and TIDAL are factored in.

An epic feat considering the fact that song is yet to impact the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 30.

‘Waves’, another Normani track, has earned $168,000 on the platform.

With these numbers in mind, one can see why many expect the New Orleans native to spend much of the next decade at the top of Pop’s food chain.

    *waits for Clarkson to make his first comment of the morning*

    • Fancy BISH November 21, 2019

      Lmao he is pathetic but it has many of you pressed tho, why do you let it bother you. Pay it dust.

      • Danny Bey November 21, 2019

        I’m not pressed in the slightest. I stopped responding to him long time ago. I just thought I’d be funny this morning ?

      • Clarksoon November 21, 2019

        These hos are pressed because i speak truth.

    • Clarksoon November 21, 2019

      Sorry i slept in late today. Here I am. Where is the article on Camila winning two grammy awards? Normani is a nonfactor.

      • Truth teller November 21, 2019

        Latin Grammys are non factor. Mi Persona Favorita was a flop but Alejandro is a legend so it was a favor.

        Motivation is called a flop but made more noise then those irrelevant Hispanic duets.Who comes to an urban site to brag about latin Grammys? Lmao

        Camila should relocate to Latin America so she can be big.

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        2 grammy award wins

        Normani who?

        Normani was nominated for a soul train award and she lost. Even blue ivy Carter won an award that night
        A 7 year old kid won an award before normani

      • SArh November 21, 2019

        You’re a fraud

        Blue Ivey did not win an award it went to the songwriters. Blue spoke in the song but didn’t write it. She’s 7

        Normani won a VMA for Waves and wasn’t nominated. Blue was not but that’s playboy since she’s a child

  2. Fancy BISH November 21, 2019

    #blackgirltragic, a certified flop with 360 contracts. Tinashe unsigned and topping iTunes is much more impressive. Where is the damn album lmao.

  3. Clarksooon November 21, 2019

    This girl had the nerve to submit this song for record and song of the year for Grammy consideration. ?

    No Grammy nominations
    No American music nominations

    How sad

  4. Clarksooon November 21, 2019

    Arianna (scooter braun)and max Martin taking 95 percent of that money. Miss scooter braun dont play with his money.

    She is starting her career on the wrong foot.

    Look at other black girls, sza, ari Lennox, summer Walker, doja cat,
    Normani can’t compete with these ladies.

    Even Michelle Obama who doesnt sing scored a grammy nomination. Lol
    Normani u in danger girl.

    • Nicky November 21, 2019

      That’s not how it works ???????

      Go read a book on music business.

      Poor Camicky. Released another flop. How do you not even go top 40 or 50 5x in a row?


      • Clarksoon November 21, 2019

        Girl yes that is how it works.

    • only facts November 21, 2019

      You idiot. Scooter Braun has nothing to do with Normani’s career. She is managed by S10 – an offspring of Roc Nation. You dumba*s. Saying sh*t just to say it.

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        Bìtch Arianna wrote motivation,
        Arianna is managed by scooter braun

        Scooter braun is getting a cut from sales of this song cause his client (arianna grande) wrote the song.

  5. only facts November 21, 2019

    Bring on single #2 Normani! I cannot WAIT! Something tells me the single is coming in January!

    Also, Tinashe’s album is surprisingly good! I thought it was going to suck like Joyride, but she came through! very cohesive, creative, and dare I say great? She probably won’t sell much but I like the album!

    • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

      U know she will never survive in 2020

      Adele is coming.
      Gaga is coming.
      If u know gaga and adele very well they always release a new song late december or early January that way she can perform it at the grammy awards in January.

      The weeknd is coming. He has wiped his Instagram clean so u know a new era is coming

      • only facts November 21, 2019

        Camila is the one that will sell 40k first week SPS if she’s LUCKY, hun. Homegirl can’t crack the top 40 remember? Nobody is checking for that album.

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        iTunes US — Pre-Orders:

        #1. Romance (+1) *new peak*

        The album overtook harry styles album on the pre order chart.

        Nobody is checking for this album? Lol
        1.3 billion streams combined
        eligible for gold certification upon release

      • Truth teller November 21, 2019

        Camila will sell because she’s doing tour bundles. So all her numbers will be fake and based on ticket sales

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        Everybody does toru bundles and merchandise bundles

        Taylor swift was selling cups and shirts
        Arianna was selling shirts together with her album
        Travis scott was sell hoodies and meet and great
        Tyler the creator
        Chain smokers
        Post malone
        Summer walker
        Jonas brothers
        Sam Smith
        Katy Perry

        Don’t be a hater.
        Everybody does is.

        Yall are bitter as hell

        It shows Camila is also a touring force and she sells concert tickets

      • Truth teller November 21, 2019

        Without ticket bundles and shawn’s song her album would underperform

        most of the people you listed would have hit number one without bundles like


        Summer Walkers numbers come from streaming which is why she’s still top 5
        on BB 200

        W/O the bundles Camila would be screwed like her last five flops that couldnt scrape the top half of the hot 100 or bubbled under.

        No one beside Shawn is feeling that Senorita outside of Havana\\

        Normani made more solo noise with Motivation than Camila’s last five flops combined.

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        They hate to see it

        U are so pained by this girl’s success.

        Arianna had merchandise bundles for dangerous woman and she still missed the number 1 spot. Lol
        With bundles kesha, jonas brothers, katy perry etc would have missed the number 1.
        Travis Scott wouldn’t have retained the number 1 spot without bundles and that’s why nicki was mad cause she couldn’t knock him off the number 1 spot.

        Normani made more noise than Camila, so why didnt normani score a grammy nomination. ????
        They dont nominate flops.
        Why didnt normani peers vote for her to score a nomination
        After releasing a remix feat 21 savage instead of the song to rise, it fell out the charts completely

        Seniorita is Camila song. She wrote the song.
        If u remove seniorita from the album, the album still has 300 million streams combined

        Shameless music video has more YouTube views than motivation. Lol

      • Truth teller November 21, 2019

        Plenty of songs were nominated that were not as successful as Motivation in the r&B category

        And the Grammys do nominate flops which is why Camila is nominated
        and her flops with Alejandro got Latin grammys

        No matter how you spin it, it’s clear that no one is interested in Solo camila .
        All her solo material is bombing

        You are so pressed that you are under a post about Normani preteneding like Camila isnt flopping

        We can look at
        Shameless Liar Cry for Me and the other one to see why no one is under a post about that since Motivation was the only solo top 40 song from the 5h bunch this year

        Camila never stands on her own two feet because no one cares. Her fans dont even stand on their own two feet because they’re trying to stand on Normani’s


      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        Liar has more streams that motivation

        Shameless has more YouTube views than motivation

        These two songs had zero promo

        Ur clinging on to a song that peaked at number 33 . Smh

        My faves peaked at number one with seniorita,
        a song she wrote and this song hadn’t left the top 5 since the day of release. 980 million streams.

        Normani submitted waves in the rnb category and she was paid dust

        Normani had the nerve to submit motivation for record and song of the year and best pop solo vocal performance, can u imagine. Which vocals are on that song ???????

        Soul train awards paid her dust. Blue ivy won a soul train award this year while normani went home empty handed. How sad is that.

        I dont even know why I’m responding to u.
        Camila a Grammy winner
        Normani a flop

  6. Clarksooon November 21, 2019

    iTunes US — Pre-Orders:

    #1. Romance (+1) *new peak*

    Romance eligible for gold certification upon release.
    1.3 billion streams combined.

    All Camila albums have been nominated for grammy awards

    CAMILA (2 nominations)
    Best pop solo performance – havana (live)
    Best pop vocal album

    ROMANCE (1 nomination)
    Best pop collaboration- seniorita

    All Camila albums have a number 1 song in them.

    When normani achieve this come speak to me.

    • Truth teller November 21, 2019

      Havana was a huge hit and still she has no regular Grammys
      She’s a two -tiem loser. What good is a nomination if you can never win lmao
      might as well not be nominated.

      Romance singles flopped so hard she had to tack on Senorita from Shawn’s album.
      The stats probably wont count so she has to do tour bundles to inflate her numbers.

      Camila is falling under Shawn and her whole album era is based on his success

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        What good is a nomination?
        U are dumb as hell.

        Most artistes dont even wanna win, they just want to be nominated cause it’s an honour to be selected by ur peers.

        Ur so silly
        Seniorita is Camila song. She wrote it

        Camila has move spotify listeners than shawn
        Camila has more monthly listeners than shawn.

        U are dumb
        Everybody does ticket bundles and merchandise bundles
        Taylor swift
        Travis Scott

        u hate to see Camila succeed
        2 latin Grammy awards in the bag

        Here comes the, its latin Grammy awards, it doesnt count, nobody know latin Grammy awards blah blah blah.????

        Time magazine cover
        London bmi award
        People choice award
        2 Latin Grammy awards
        1 number song in the uk and us

        All these achievements only in 2019

      • Truth teller November 21, 2019

        All of that paid publicity and industry connections but no one is connecting with her music unless it has a side of same white male. Not even for a single week.

        Imagine all your nominations are based on flop songs or based on you dating another pop star

        Her brand is very weak and her talent is not selling.

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        Nobody is connecting with Camila

        Top 5 most listened to Artists WW on Spotify:

        #1 – ed sheeran (64 million)
        #2 – Post Malone (57 million)
        #3 – Camila Cabello (56 million)
        #4 – khalid (54 million)
        #5 – J BALVIN (53 million)

        She’s the only girl in the top 5

      • Truth teller November 21, 2019

        The only reason she is there is because of Ed Sheeran Cardi B and Shawn Mendes

        Why must you pretend that her solo material isnt flopping.

        They are connecting with the famous people she collabs with. jkjkjk;afjk;l

        Normani is carving out her own lane while Camila is clinging to men because her solo career has no prayer

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        Havana – 1. 3 billion streams
        Seniorita- 980 million streams , about to hit 1 billion in some few days time

        Where is normani? Twerking in her underwear.

        So a song that peaked at number 33 is better than a song that peaked at number one with features. U are dumb as rocks I swear. Lol

  7. Clarksooon November 21, 2019

    Guess who is gonna be sitting at home next year watching the Grammys cause she was not nominated? Normani

    Guess who’s gonna be sitting at home watching the 2019 American music awards this sunday, cause she didnt score a nomination? Normani

    You guys were excited cause Rihanna hyped normani. Lol
    Rihanna a sneaky bìtch, she knows normani is not competition , she knows normani is not a threat that’s why she hyped her on Twitter.
    If normani was a threat to Rihanna, rihanna will never give her a shout out.

    This is the same thing nicki does. She always give a shout out to rapper who are not her competition (dej lov, ms banks etc)
    She can never hype a rapper like cardi or remi cause they are her competition.

    • Truth teller November 21, 2019

      Rihanna hyped Lizzo tons of times and Lizzo is definitely competition.

      You sound dumb.

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        Lizzo is not Rihanna competition

        Lizzo doesnt dance neither is she sèxy or young.
        U are silly

      • Truth teller November 21, 2019

        Lizzo is 8 times nominated in every major Grammy category and has the biggest record of a year for a black girl

        She is definitely in her crossover lane despite being big.

  8. Dr November 21, 2019

    Ain’t earn no Grammy nominations so ???

    • Clarksooon November 21, 2019


      The academy don’t acknowledge flops.

      Twitter hype don’t translate into sales or Grammy nominations.

    • Truth teller November 21, 2019

      Partly because she’s a black woman straddling between pop and urban

      If she was R&B those numbers would be some of the best for a female singer this year

      People like HER, Brandy, and Beyonce’s spirit were nominated but they dont have the streams of Motivation but they belong to a genre that’s smaller.

      Normani also released only one solo song this year so it’s obviously not her season yet. Normally the Grammys are given during album cycles.

      If youre going to try to drag her then learn about the business trends before you speak.

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        What of lizzo?
        Of cause u were going to mention her race

        waves is an rnb and she submitted waves in the rnb category, so why did they pay her dust?

        Gurl shut up.

        Normani is not talented and she will never be successful. She will end up a judge on a talent show, mark my words

      • Truth teller November 21, 2019

        Lizzo is an emcee who put out an entire album this year. Rap is popular in the streaming era although she does dabble in rap and singing. Her album helped launch her. Before her album she had 0 hits.

        Normani has no album but Motivation went top 40 without it. And she has two huge collabs that are multiplatinum top tens .

        Why bother to responding if you’re not going to read? it’s clear you’re not black. Why are you so concerned then?

        Normani is talented but has less work out as she had develop her sound after being in a successful group for years playing a role.

        Stay pressed.

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        For u to even mention normani in this conversation it shows u are dumb

        With all the hype and free promo she got, motivation couldn’t hit the top 10
        She cold score at least one Grammy nomination
        The enter music industry was supporting normani and she couldn’t score 1 nomination, the Grammys are voted by people in the music industry

        Ur a hater , and if u argue with a hater u can never win. They will always look for something to discredit u with, just like u trying to discredit Camila unreleased with tour bundles, even tho every artiste does ticket and merchandise bundles.

        U are delusional if u think normani will have a successful music career.

        Camila brand is weak but she has the most streamed song by a female

        Now ur saying Grammy nominations dont matter. Lol

        U can never win the eyes of a hater
        They will always shift the goal post.

        Comparing a singer with zero Grammy noms to a 3 time nominee. Smh

      • Truth teller November 21, 2019

        For me to mention Normani in a post about Nromani’s gold eligible 500,000 song shows that I’m dumb jkfkjkl;j;l

        Camila does not belong in this discussion because camila is only relevant in your head and in Shawn’s sheets

        She has nothing to do with Normani but you have shoehorned her in so we need to be honest.

        Camila has 0 grammys and is a 2 time loser.

        Normani is beginning to get more traction while Camila fails.

        Normani has been charting straight for the past 90 something weeks and Camila has jumped from Shawn to Bazzi to Kane Brwon scrambling for hits that haven’t stuck until she went back to exploiting her race and fetishizing herself so Shawn Mendes could get a hit

        Why do you think you’re here? It cant be because Camila is doing well

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        “Camila has 0 grammys and is a 2 time loser.”

        Why are u embarrassing ur self like this

        Normani was not even considered. She has no nominations
        Grammy academy dont know her name

        My faves has performed twice at the Grammys. She opened this years Grammy awards
        She scored two nominations for her debut album

        Normani will never see this kind of success

        She will be a host on good morning America or be a judge on xfactor.

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        “Normani is beginning to get more traction while Camila fails.”

        She released a remix of motivation and instead of the song to rise , the song fell out of the charts completely . This is the first time in history this has happened.

        She better thank sam Smith for giving her her biggest hit (peaked at number 7,) cause she will never see the top 10 ever again in her career.

        What are normani streaming stats
        What are normani award stats
        What are normani chart stats

        Grammys paid her dust (Camila has 3 nominations and has won 2 latin grammys)
        American music awards paid her dust (camila has won 4 AMA and is nominated again this year)
        People choice award paid her dust ( Camila won one this year)

        U faves has never attended the Grammys before ever in her life

        Camila has performed twice at the Grammys

  9. Truth teller November 21, 2019

    Congrats to Normani and her team! Hope she can keep the momentum going.

    • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

      What momentum
      She’s already having record label and management problems

      She twitted a cryptic message on her twitter.

      • Truth teller November 21, 2019

        The message was about Sam Smith being snubbed with her for their big record like Sam Smith has been snubbed by the Academy for the past few years.

        Normani has new material coming and some major press. The troubles are probably made up rumors on the internet and in your head.

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        This is the tweet I’m talking about

        “I won’t be boxed in. y’all won’t do it to me. I’m not the one”

        Big record? Dancing with the stranger peaked at number 7. This song is not hers.

        This song was her only shot at getting a nomination and she has missed her chance.

        She will never be nominated ever.

      • Tori November 21, 2019

        If Normani can’t have have “Dancing With A Stranger”, Camila simply can’t have “Senorita”. Both songs belong to other artist. Even a quick google search will show you that Shawn is the primary artist. You can’t bend the rules so that your fav look more superior when in reality she’s clinging to Shawns success. Just because “she wrote it” doesn’t mean it’s her song, it means she has a feature and a writing credit on his song.

      • Clarksooon November 21, 2019

        Seniorita is Spanish
        Camila is latino
        Shawn is a white boy from Canada

        Seniorita has a latino beat/sound which is synonymous with Camila not shawn

        Dancing with a stranger has that dance stripped down sam Smith sound , this sound is not a normani sound.


        Camila has more monthly listeners than shawn on spotify . Camila is responsible for this song song success.

        Camila already had a number one song before she collaborated with shawn on seniorita, shawn had never hit number 1 ever in his career, so Camila gave shawn his first and only number to date.

      • Tori November 21, 2019

        Girl…”Seniorita is Spanish
        Camila is latino
        Shawn is a white boy from Canada
        Seniorita has a latino beat/sound which is synonymous with Camila not shawn”…you sound like a little kid throwing out conjunctions to win an argument. It doesn’t matter who sung what in Spanish, who uses what sound to identify their artistry. Camila was asked to be apart of a song as a featured artist and slipped a writing credit it too. MOVE THE F*** ON! “She has more monthly listeners than Shawn!”, babe, if that was a credible excuse, why are her single from her last album and current album flopping? Those listeners/subscribers don’t mean s*** if they’re not streaming the actual music. Stop spending so much time watching Normani and trying to drag her down while your fav needs night classes on how to effectively use payola because she’s been waiting Epic/Sony money all year. Any time Epic releases more than 2 singles before an album, hang it up (Jackie, Calling All Lovers, etc.). That’s not a grand label sweetie, her ass is on the line.

  10. Nicky November 21, 2019

    Roll on Second single!!!!


    Outdoing a certain girl’s five tries at a lead single


    Releasing multiple singles to get streams for the first week. Lmfaooooooooo

  11. Clarksooon November 21, 2019

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

    Her power
