Normani’s ‘Motivation’ Certified Platinum

Published: Friday 14th Aug 2020 by Rashad

‘Motivation,’ the official debut solo single of former Fifth Harmony hitmaker Normani, has been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America almost exactly a year after its release date.

Details inside:

Unleashed August 16, 2019 on the wings of a highly choreographed and stylized music video directed by Dave Meyers, the tune got its ultimate push after Normani blazed the stage of the year’s MTV VMAs.

Premiering and peaking at #33 on the Hot 100 as a result (as we reported here), the entry not only marked her third top 40 hit as a solo act but it was also her first as a leader.

Now, as she puts the finishing touches on its parent album (which features production and/or songwriting from the likes of Rodney Jerkins, Missy Elliott, Ryan Tedder, The Neptunes, and more), she’s learned the Ilya-produced ‘Motivation’ has crossed the RIAA’s threshold for Platinum status (August 14).  This indicates the tune has sold the equivalent of 1 million units in the United States.

Coming as the third certification plaque of her career, its arrival follows the 4x Platinum success of ‘Love Lies’ (with Khalid) and the 2x Platinum success of ‘Dancing with a Stranger’ (with Sam Smith).

    Platinum does not mean anything in 2020! Please stop trying to make it happen!
    Real Platinum Sales : 1 000 000 albums & 2 000 000 singles
    When she does those numbers, you can write about it!
    This is not journalism!

    • ERIC August 15, 2020

      Platinum status for singles has been one million since ’89.

    • Meme August 15, 2020

      Platinum for singles is 1 mil dumbo not 2 mil. If you are trying to shade atleast come with facts.

      • Quincy August 15, 2020

      Did you fall in love with him? Because I never see him talking about you all but I ALWAYS see you all talk about him, waiting for him to come, wondering where he is LMAO I swear y’all are f crazy stans, it’s scary. But I think that you like it, you like to fight against each other, that makes you feel alive in your miserable life 😉

    • tyty August 15, 2020

      Ermm clarkscum is parading around as FRAUD his the only one on this blog that leaves double comments when commenting.

      • FRAUD August 15, 2020

        LMAO you are so dumb, it’s unbelievable.

      • FRAUD August 15, 2020

        I’m so Clarksson that I’m about to say this : Normani, Camila, it’s all the same. These girls are puppets because it’s all about the MONEY and not the ART so NOW leave me the f*** alone with this clarksson thing, even if I don’t agree with everything he’s saying, he’s right most of the time and y’all ALWAYS dragging him even when he’s not there. NOBODY can defend him, have the same opinion without reading “oh you’re clarksson with an other account” DAMN y’all are SO PRESSED that you try to make him be a clown. I swear, y’all are f****** crazy people.

      • tyty August 15, 2020

        You think the resident normani fan who brings her up on every single post related or not coincidently disappears and you whose never commented before appears sounding identical to clarkscum. You’re not fooling anyone.

        You think the resident normani fan who brings her up on every single post related or not coincidently disappears and you whose never commented before appears sounding identical to clarkscum. You’re not fooling anyone. Lol, and you’re going on the defence why don’t you comment when his on this blog 24/7 agreeing with his craziness? You just mysteriously appeared on a normani post of all places.

      • FRAUD August 16, 2020

        You know what? Believe WHATEVER THE F*** you want, I DON’T CARE. Check out our both IP adress if you’re able to and when you will realise that we are 2 differents person we will come here to apologize. You are stupid as hell.

      • FRAUD August 16, 2020

        Check your facts better silly h** : here are some people that are waiting for him to come here to drag Normani, how come these people are thirsty for some drama and you don’t tell anything to them? I come to this website everyday just like all of you because of the music, EVEYTIME I see something about Clarksson even when he’s not there, just like here! You ALL are stan about him, I swear and now when y’all ask for him and when somebody answer, saying basically “stop with him” you want to make me be Clarksson in disguise because it’s impossible that someone could defend him? Hey… do you realise how CRAZY you are? Y’all are SO MUCH PRESSED by this man that you wait for him to come to drag you and your favorite artists, you came to think that he’s probably the only one to come here everyday, like he was a God or something? You probably dream about him I don’t know, it’s kinda weird, I never seen anything like that before, he really succeed on driving you all crazy it’s amazing. CHECK YOUR FACTS BETTER

    I’m waiting for Clarkson 😂 😂
    Come Drag her please.. Cuz she took an entire year to achieve something with this old Ass Song ..

    • ERIC August 15, 2020

      If anything, it shows survival and longevity in a microwave generation.

    • FRAUD August 15, 2020

      You said it, it took her a year 😉 and thank you to : Ariana, Beyoncé, Lana, Miley and ALL of the famous people who helped her all these month 🙂 one year later, stil nothing new to show because the little girl is trying to find herself because she never thought about it earlier, so so not professional, it just proves that she’s just a puppet 🙂 REAL artists first find their own identity and THEN they release their music. Good-bye Normani.

  4. Fergalicious 💅 August 15, 2020

    Dancing with a stranger is better single. Motivation sounds like Ariana Grande style.

    • FRAUD August 15, 2020

      The only reason why she has this platinium certification is thank to Ariana, Lana, Miley, Beyoncé and so many other artists, if she was on her own it would have been different. She doesn’t deserve it.

      • #WAP August 15, 2020

        Lana has never mentioned Normani you racist c_unt

      • FRAUD August 15, 2020

        Where did I say Lana “mentionned” her? Learn how to read 🙂 if i’m racist being black, what the F are you for calling me c_unt? You are the only racist here, bye.

        Wow I guess they friends

  6. FRAUD August 15, 2020

    How many time did it take her to have this platinium certification? Please… you need to stop with her, she’s a flop. Any flop song can reach this certification when a lot of famous people and websites are putting it under the spotlight to get anybody’s attention, the fact that it took her so much time says everything. I don’t give a F about all of these stans, if you’re feeling hurt by my words even if it’s not about you then I suggest you go to the therapist because this is en emergency.

    • #WAP August 15, 2020

      Stfu you racist hater

      • FRAUD August 15, 2020

        Don’t even dare to call me a racist when you’re the only one to call me a c*nt! If you can’t handle my point of view it’s YOUR problem, not mine. Now GTFO racist.

  7. FRAUD August 15, 2020

    How many time did it take her to have this platinium? Please… she can say thank you to Beyoncé, Megan, Ariana, Lana and so many other artists, I never seen so much famous people endorsing a singer like this without having any hits, this is clearly about family business. I’m sorry Normani but you don’t deserve it. Oh and I don’t give a damn about all the stans around here, if you feel personaly hurt by my words about Normani then you seriously should go to the therapist. Some of you need some help.

    • #WAP August 15, 2020

      You don’t deserve anything. Who tf are you to say Normani doesn’t deserve this to be platinum? You sound racist and bitter…those are the people that age horribly and quickly

      • FRAUD August 15, 2020

        Oh yeah, I forgot that today you are racist even when you’re not. I’m black dumbo so now GTFO. I’m free to say whatever the F I want so if you’re mad, that’s not my problem, take a pill.

      • FRAUD August 15, 2020

        I’m fed-up with this Normani thing, y’all try to make her what she’s not and the fact that after all these years in FH she still doesn’t know what her personnal musical style is tells everything ! She’s just a Puppet like Camila and the others, it’s all about MONEY and not ART.

  8. Ling Ling Sauce💋💦💦 August 15, 2020

    If it certified platinum, why the song never cracked into top 20???? It’s weird that some songs barely make in top 40 and still certified gold…

  9. #WAP August 15, 2020

    Congrats princess Normani!

    • FRAUD August 15, 2020

      Don’t forget to make an appointment with a psychiatrist, maybe they could help you.

  10. What Happened To The World August 15, 2020

    This blog is so messy. LOL,

    What’s the point of posting certifications from a song released last year?

    You guys love the madness in the comment section.

    • FRAUD August 15, 2020

      The industry is trying to build-up a beyoncé-schéma for her to replace the queen of thief so, to make sure everything is okay for the future, they’re trying to make her first official song having some certifications and let the people know about it even if it’s a year later so they can believe she’s a star in the making, but she’s not. How many years she has been in the music? And she still doesn’t know which is her own musical identity… why? Because she came in this industry JUST for the fame and the money, nothing else because if it was for passion, she would have worked on her own music for years now and she would know who she is right now, which is not the case. I’m not a star, i’m not famour but I write and record music, all the time and after 3 years of doing covers and trying different things, now I know who I am and what I have to do in music and that’s because I’m a real passionate! Real people that really like to do music don’t wait to have a contract and a lot of fans to release some music. When Siobhan Donaghy and Mutya Buena released her first solo album after the Sugababes, she already knew who she was and what she was supposed to do, that’s real artists.

  11. Dydy August 15, 2020

    I wish her team pushed that song better. It can go to gold one day.
    As a fan, i find it very weird that she’s so quiet during a quarantine when everybody else is pushing for their music to be streamed.

    • FRAUD August 15, 2020

      Simply because they tried too hard to sell her to the public without being ready yet. She never tried to find herself apart from the FH so when they gave her that Ariana inspired song, the public knew what it was about. I guess she’s trying to experiment a lot of music since many month now, trying to find her own identity and I hope she will find it because she won’t go anywhere without it.

    Congratulations mama!
