This comes after Normani’s question about features on her debut album left tweeps confused.
Last month, the “Motivation”singer hinted that she had a song on the way with singer-songwriter The-Dream, which gave hope to many of her fans.
She has not released any new solo music since 2019, except “Diamonds” with Megan Thee Stallion in 2020 as part of the “Birds of Prey” soundtrack, which garnered a lukewarm reaction.
Fans have been patiently waiting for an update from the “Waves” singer since she’s been mostly mum about the upcoming project, except for a few Instagram pictures of her in the studio.
Earlier this month, Nomani asked her fans and the Twitterverse who they want her to collaborate with on the album.
While many Twitter users gave suggestions, there were also tweeps sharing their frustrations about it still being in the recording phase, since she’s been working on the album for close to three years.
