Normani took her time with this one. Former gymnast Normani Kordei serving Simone Biles in stilettos is enough to get anyone drunk in love. The R-rated track features Cardi B, who cast Normani in her “WAP” music video last year (one of her many strokes of utter genius). The former Fifth Harmony star has returned with “Wild Side,” her first official single since 2019’s “Motivation,” and she’s showing off the parts of her that fans never get to see. We’re, uh, gonna need her for the doc …

Breath! Nobody does 2000s nostalgia like Normani. She shows off all her dance training, from body rolls to floor work to popping and locking, all while styled in updated 2000s fashion — baggy pants and tiny tops galore. Behold: ART. Who is the lucky gorgeous gal who plays Normani’s reflection? Download the GIF, it’ll last longer. Love this trend of Cardi B and her gal pals just being extra friendly. She joins the R&B songstress wearing nothing but the (glowing) skin she’s in. Not just concept, but execution. Related

Tags: You have choreographer Sean Bankhead to thank for all of this. Taking! Whether you’ve found your new religion or just want to marvel at Normani’s bone structure, these GIFs are for you. Begging for a feature-length documentary exclusively about this scene, from inception to rehearsal to the Twitter debates already ensuing. Directed by Tanu Muino with creative direction from Maxime Quoilin, Normani commands the attention of every camera across dynamic sets. She’s both parts of “What’s Luv” with Ashanti and Ja Rule and all of Destiny’s Children. Normani has arrived.
