The X Factor
Normani first gained national recognition when she competed in the second season of the reality television music competition show "The X Factor" in 2012. Although she was eliminated fairly early on, she was brought back by the judges and placed into a group with Lauren Jauregui, Dinah Jane, Ally Brooke, and Camila Cabello. Ultimately, the group made it to the finale, finishing in third place.
Normani's group from "The X Factor" eventually became the girl group Fifth Harmony. In 2013, Fifth Harmony released its debut EP, "Better Together," which debuted at number six on the Billboard 200. This was followed in 2015 by the group's first studio album, "Reflection," which debuted at number five on the Billboard 200 and launched the hit singles "Boss," "Sledgehammer," and "Worth It." Fifth Harmony's second album "7/27," came out in 2016; peaking at number four, it spawned the group's highest-charting single to date, "Work from Home." After Cabello left the group later that year, Fifth Harmony released a self-titled album that also charted at number four on the Billboard 200. In 2018, the group took an indefinite hiatus so its members could pursue careers as solo artists.
As a solo artist, Normani signed to the management company S10 Entertainment in 2017. The following year, she had her first major hit outside of Fifth Harmony with the track "Love Lies," a duet with Khalid that was written for the film "Love, Simon." The song eventually peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100. Normani went on to sign with Keep Cool/RCA Records to record her debut solo album. She then released the EP "Normani x Calvin Harris" with Calvin Harris; it includes two songs, "Checklist" and "Slow Down." Following this, Normani released the single "Waves," featuring 6lack. In early 2019, she released "Dancing with a Stranger," a duet with Sam Smith that made it to number three in the UK and number seven in the US.
After performing at Lollapalooza in 2019, Normani released her first single without a featured artist: "Motivation." The track peaked at number 33 in the US. Also in 2019, Normani collaborated with Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande on the song "Bad to You," which was written for the film remake of "Charlie's Angels." The next year, alongside Megan Thee Stallion, Normani contributed to another film song: "Diamonds" from the superhero film "Birds of Prey." She had another hit in the summer of 2021 with "Wild Side," featuring Cardi B; it serves as the lead single from her upcoming debut album. In 2022, Normani released "Fair," the second single from that album.
