#BlackGirlSlay: Normani & 6lack Releases Music Video to "Waves"

Normani's star is continuing to rise. Although there isn't an official release date set for her debut solo album, the former 5H singer is continuing to keep her fans quenched.

The 22-year-old dropped her collaboration with 6lack titled "Waves" back in November, which has since peaked at No. 19 on the Hot R&B Songs, with 13M streams on Spotify. On Tuesday (Feb. 12), the "Slow Down" singer followed up the success of the slow-burning single with a video to it.

"Waves" takes a page out of iconic videos like Britney's "Oops I Did It Again" and Janet's "Feedback." Normani is dancing provocatively throughout the three-minute visual reminiscent to Beyoncé a la her 2003 "Baby Boy" on the surface of a lonely planet.

Normani spoke to Zane Lowe on Beats 1 back in November about her appreciation for 6lack. "I admire [6LACK] as an artist," she said on the radio show.

"He's an amazing lyricist, and I feel like he took the record to a whole other level. I already love the record as is, but he totally exceeded any expectation I even had, which was pretty high, because I admire him as an artist."

It was also announced today via Billboard that her collaboration with Khalid -- "Love Lies" tied with Dua Lipa's "New Rules" for the most weeks spent on the Billboard Pop Songs airplay chart.
