Normani is getting candid.
The hitmaker got personal during her recent appearance on Power 106, where she talked her new single ‘Wild Side’ and how it helped to get her and her mom through the “darkest time.”
Her words below…
“This past year, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer.”
“For me, this work that I was able to put out into the world, like, this really saved me, to be completely honest. Even just being on FaceTime with her as she’s going through her chemo and her radiation, and just wanting me to update her on how this video is going, and how the music is coming, it really got her through that. It got my family through the darkest time of our lives.”
She then went on to reveal how her mother motivated her to share the new music with the world, saying:
“Right after she had her surgery. This was in October. She’s like, ‘Baby, I’m gonna be fine. What I need you to do is focus. I need you to be Normani. I need you to be the best version of yourself. I need you to continue to work hard. We gotta get this music out. We have the world to impact.’ She was just like, ‘I’m gonna be fine.’ Anything that my mom says, to be completely honest, I believe.”
Elsewhere in the interview, she talked about her experience working with Cardi B.
‘Wild Side’ is Normani’s first lead single since 2019’s ‘Motivation’ and continues to build plenty of ample buzz for her debut album, which is due out later this year.
