Normani Kordei Is The First Artist Signed To Keep Cool/RCA Records
Normani’s solo career is off to a flying start. The former Fifth Harmony diva already has a hit on the Billboard Hot 100 courtesy of Khalid collaboration, “Love Lies,” and now inks a deal with Keep Cool/RCA Records. “[She] is a dynamic, multi-talented young woman with vibrant energy and a powerful spirit,” Keep Cool co-founder Tunji Balogun, who will also A&R Normani’s debut album, says in a press release. “We are extremely excited to welcome her into the RCA family and I’m honored to announce her as the first artist signed to Keep Cool.”
“We are all looking forward to watching Normani thrive and flourish as we create incredible music and unforgettable moments together.” That sentiment is shared by RCA chairman and CEO Pete Edge. “We are thrilled to welcome [her] as the first artist under the Keep Cool/RCA Records imprint,” he says. “Normani’s talent and charisma really sets her apart as a leading lady in the industry and I know she will bring that same energy and more to her solo career.” With that kind of support, there’s no stopping the budding superstar.
“I’m so incredibly grateful to be able to be in a place where I can explore myself as an artist and what I’m capable of,” Normani raves. “Never in a million years did I think I would be in this position in 2018. Everyone has been so supportive and patient, thank you so much to my fans for giving me the opportunity.” She also gave her former bandmates a shoutout. “I’m so thankful to my girls that we created this space among ourselves to explore and branch out creatively. Fifth Harmony has always been and will always be home.”
