Just when you thought Normani’s 2018 couldn’t get any bigger, she announces a new collaboration with 6LACK. The song is called “Waves” and it arrives tomorrow (November 15) at 10am PST. The Fifth Harmony vocalist also shared the cover art, which finds the collaborators reclining on white sheets. There’s something about the font and styling that is giving me a ’90s vibe, so it will be interesting to see if that is reflected in the music. In any case, this is destined to be one of the week’s most-anticipated releases.

While all of the 5H alumni have thriving solo careers, Normani’s is particularly promising. She cracked the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 with “Love Lies,” racking up more than 400 million Spotify streams in the process. The 22-year-old recently followed that up that Khalid-assisted bop with dual Calvin Harris collaborations. “Checklist” and “Slow Down” showcase the rising star’s versatility and willingness to experiment. They were never intended to be radio songs, which is a bold move. Check out the cover of “Waves” below.
