Solo Normani Kordei Rises: Listen to Her Skillful Solange Mashup Cover
Normani Kordei's solo stardom is officially on the rise, as the Fifth Harmony member delivered an impressive mashup cover of the Solange singles, "Don't Touch My Hair" and "Cranes in the Sky."
The mashup -- which premiered exclusively on USA Today on Thursday (January 5) -- recalls another cover she posted in mid-December of Drake's "Fake Love" and "Sneakin."
Speaking about her decision to cover Solange, Kordei told USA Today, "I was inspired by Solange's album, A Seat At The Table, from the moment that I heard it. She has clearly taken the time to create a unique body of work and emote through her music from a true place."
According to the track's YouTube bio, it was “reproduced and arranged by the Invaders,” who also worked with Kordei on the Drake cover.
Fellow artist Troye Sivan gave the mashup cover his stamp of approval when he posted on Twitter earlier today, writing, "i am physically shaking. like no lie," before begging Kordei to send him the full version of the track.
Kordei's cover comes weeks after Camila Cabello announced she was leaving Fifth Harmony. Despite the shakeup -- and the public drama that ensued between Cabello and the rest of the group shortly after -- the remaining members insist they'll forge ahead to release another album together while also focusing on their own solo projects in their spare time.
