Will Normani's album feature Cardi B collab? Singer teases MV 'coming soon', fans say 'this year at least'
'Momma Normani may we please get we can’t not keep talking about it ', Cardi B wrote
It looks like Normani has an incoming surprise project in the works that is sure to see some jaws drop. A special pal of Normani, a certain Cardi B, dropped a message on Twitter during the early hours of March 23 to tease a collaboration. Cardi B linked a post of a fan account that revealed that Normani's mother shared love for the rapper on her own Instagram Stories. Adding her own comment for the post, Cardi B directed a request at Normani that alludes that the pair have been working on a collaboration and they're eager to reveal the news.
"Momma Normani may we please get ' we can’t not keep talking about it '," Cardi B wrote. What's curious about her tweet is that she didn't "@" Normani (which makes it easier for Normani to see the message) and Normani still responded, which could mean she was likely expecting to see her friend post a teaser - i.e. the two artists are promoting an actual collaboration and not just dropping random tweets.
Wild speculation aside and there is more than enough proof in one of Normani's latest tweets. Normani then linked Cardi B's message on her account, adding a reply that confirmed it. According to the 'Dancing With a Stranger' singer, the pair have been working on a new music video releasing in the near future. "Video coming sooooon sis," Normani replied, adding a cold face emoji. Check out their exchange below.
For those eager for her long-awaited album, Normani further solidified its existence when she expressed her own excitement for it before the Cardi exchange. "Wow... the record I’m making right now," she wrote. Normani previously confirmed that she is working on a new album back in November. Speaking to Women's Health Magazine, she said, "For a long time, I was stressed out about checking boxes like, ‘Is this Black enough? Is this pop enough?’ But music started feeling way better when I just went into the studio with the mentality of being Normani. People will always remember how you made them feel and what a record did for them." She added, "My lyrics have more depth, and they’re more intentional and come from a more authentic place, because I now feel more connected to myself than before."

The buzz this little reveal generated...
Meanwhile, fans are excited for the promised new music video but are seemingly tired of the teasing for new music. "'Soon' this year at least!" said a fan while another wrote in all caps, "STOP PLAYING." One fan wrote, "This better not be a joke ,I can't handle no more." "Let me ignore the word soon but so true it's coming!" shared a fan. "That was a long ass soon sis. You mean soon as in this month or soon as in y'all ain't getting that shit so forget about it???" added another fan.
