Normani’s “Motivation” is currently blasting sound waves across the world, and she’s also taking us back to the 2000s for an unforgettable accompanying music video. Showcasing the musician's longstanding big dreams, the video begins during the former Fifth Harmony member’s childhood, showing her as she watches BET’s 106 & Park Countdown and dreams of achieving the top-ranked music video. Lo and behold, young Normani is starstruck when she hears her name, and the video then shifts to the present, when the pop singer’s incredible hip-hop dancing abilities definitely steal the show.
Normani channels her inner Beyoncé and Britney Spears with memorable looks and fierce dance moves that commemorate the stars' aughts-era success. Having co-written the song with this decade's reigning pop queen Ariana Grande, Normani has made a new track that's nothing short of legendary. As this single is the artist's first piece without a collaborative voice, she’s definitely cemented herself as a leading solo vocalist, and she’s certainly one to watch. She exudes confidence as she exquisitely executes the showstopping choreography throughout the video. It’s an uplifting moment that's breaking the internet, and you have to see it for yourself.
“I’m a break you off, let me be your motivation/To stay and give it tonight,” the musician sings as she leads an entourage of dancers. “And, baby, turn around, let me give you innovation.” As she takes over the neighborhood streets, owns the basketball court with insane skills, dramatically dances in the rain, and pursues a romance, Normani is conquering this Hot Girl Summer in more ways than one.
