The wait is over! Normani has released her new single and video featuring Cardi B called “Wild Side.” The video features multiple looks from Normani as well as a risqué scene with Cardi B where both artists are just covered in their hair, just like the cover art for the single.


“I had already been in rehearsal for about three weeks preparing for the video when Cardi heard the record for the first time,” Normani said in a statement per Billboard. “She really showed up for me and brought this record to life by simply doing what Cardi does best.”

“I love that woman down and I’m forever grateful,” the singer added.

The “WAP” rapper posted a picture to her Instagram from the music video congratulating the singer, “Soooo proud of you @normani !!! Deada– wanna cry for you!! WILDSIDE ON ALL PLATFORMS !”

This is the 25-year-old’s first single in two years since her 2019 hit “Motivation” which later came out with a remix featuring 21 Savage in 2020.

The singer notably had hits with Sam Smith on the track “Dancing With a Stranger” and “Love Lies” with Khalid.

Since released at midnight last night, the video has already made over 1 million views and is currently #2 on Itunes.

Celebrities and fans are already sending Normani praise for her new hit:
