Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei has impressed again with her stunning vocals. This week, the 20-year-old singer dropped a video on YouTube of her mashing together two Solange Knowles singles, ‘Dont’ Touch my Hair‘ and ‘Cranes in the Sky‘ [off her album A Seat at the Table]. In the nearly-five-minute mash-up, Normani soulfully sings over beautifully harmonized background vocals. She effortlessly blends the songs and opts for minimal finger-snapped rhythms in favor of showing her angelic vocals. Alongside the release, Kordei told USA TODAY, covering Solange is a special experience
“I was inspired by Solange’s album, A Seat At The Table, from the moment that I heard it,” she said. “She has clearly taken the time to create a unique body of work and emote through her music from a true place.”
Normani also told the newspaper about her “prosperous” year ahead, “not only regarding Fifth Harmony and this new chapter together, but also my own personal endeavors in and outside of music.” Last month, Camila Cabello announced her exit from Fifth Harmony. The remaining members posted their first photo as a quartet on Thursday.
This new cover is Normani’s second effort she’s shared in less than a month. In mid-December, she shared a mash-up of Drake‘s songs, ‘Fake Love‘ and ‘Sneaking‘ featuring 21 Savage. Last February, she also unleashed her cover of Tory Lanez‘ ‘Say It Back‘.
