Normani Confirms Brandy Collaboration on ‘Dopamine’ Album

Published: Wednesday 5th Jun 2024 by Sam

Normani is counting down the days to the release of her debut solo album ‘Dopamine.’

Long-awaited, the LP is preceded by singles ‘1:59’ and ‘Candy Paint.’

Now, the singer has revealed that when it arrives, it’ll be doing so with a feature from none other than Brandy.

Full story below…

Speaking with Rolling Stone, Normani said of The Vocal Bible’s contribution to her project:

“There’s a record called “A Capella (Something’s Missing)” by her [from 2008], and I went in with that inspiration with [producers] Stargate. I was like, “I want to capture this feeling.” And that’s exactly what we did. And I was like, “Wouldn’t it be crazy if she added harmonies and just different textures?” That’s really what I was going for. She loved the song. She ended up being so down and jumped on it. I have a record with Brandy! It was crazy.”

When quizzed on the sound of her record at large, she added:

“I naturally gravitate to darker-sounding things from a sonic perspective, something that feels like it has bite and grit and edginess to it. I always just like being left of center. At one point, I was like, “Listen, everything can’t sound dark. We want to take everybody on a ride. We need to add some color.” I love Missy Elliott so much, Timbaland production. I like unique things that haven’t necessarily really been heard, so that’s also why production is my favorite part of the process. I’m honestly already thinking about what I want the show to look like. I’m excited to perform “Lights On.” That’s my Janet moment.”

‘Dopamine’ arrives via RCA Records on June 14.

    I played the heck out of A Capella (Something Is Missing) back in the day. But I think a similar song in 2024 may sound a little dated. I hope it’s good.

    Two flops on the tracks! Flop mani, Brandy can’t save your flop career since hers had been dead since 2010s

    your Janet moment? gurl, you don’t even have a “Tinashe” moment.

      Tinashe has never had a top 10 hit. Normani has multiple. So Tinashe has never had a Normani moment, buddy

        Bye ho, tinashe moment is composed and wrote all the song by herself. Meanwhile flop mani ain’t doing s*** but keep talking and talking… Who is talking about chart? you dumn see bish 💅🏻
