Normani, 25, nailed her choreography during her performance of her hit "Wild Side", which has now officially been awarded gold. Cardi B can be seen on the track but was absent from the show, likely due to the recent birth of her son. Despite Cardi's absence, the performance was seductive, flirtatious, and exhilarating.
Normani wears a silver outfit that channels her inner Aaliyah, Ciara and TLC at the same time. Normani has mentioned in the past that she was inspired by 1990s R&B and it showed.
Her lead single "Wild Side" is her interpretation of the late Aaliyah and Timbalands "One In A Million".
"I really just believed in this album and when I have a passion for something there is no denying it," she said during her interview with ESSENCE. “I honestly allowed the music to take the lead and inspire me. This project took an army to accomplish. I really wanted to be deliberate and focus on details in every possible way. We actually had enough time to prepare the right path, which for me makes the difference. This is by far my best work so far in visual terms. "
