Normani Says Recording New Song Fair Felt Like Therapy

Normani‘s latest single “Fair” is here and it’s a beautiful, ballad departure from her previously released singles.

The 24-year-old singer shared that the new song “captured me in the moment,” and recording the track felt like therapy.

Listen to the song and see what she said inside…

“What makes it so special was… it captured me in the moment as I was experiencing. In real time. I was going through it emotionally that, that day, I wasn’t sure if I could even really pick myself up to go to the studio. But ended up, and this was a result. And it’s therapy for me. As much as it is for everyone else, it’s for me,” she told Apple Music 1′s Zane Lowe.

“It’s really crazy that putting this record out, I didn’t know that it was going to be for me too. I’m so proud of how it was written, and the way that we were able to… You could tell this was written by all females, right?” Normani continued. “We really just poured our hearts out to each other, and we really all went through the same experience. So it was a lot easier for the lyrics to just come out. It was like floodgates. And that’s what we did. It was more so therapy. Girls just pouring their hearts out to each other.”

Normani also opened up about embracing vulnerability.

“I always told myself that I owed it to me to put out something that I really believe in and connect with for such a long time. Obviously with the group that I came from, I just, I made myself that promise that God gave me another opportunity to do things for me and the way that I want them to be and the visions that he’s placed on my heart,” she shared.

“That for me, this record, it’s so, so important aside from what the rest of the world may also want, which is coming. I know they want me to move. I know they want me to entertain. And this record is another layer of who I am and my experiences,” Normani continued. “And I feel like I grew up in the public eye, so it’s been very, very scary. And very complicated. And a sense of forcing myself into this idea of perfection to protect myself, you know? But this is the first time that I’m just free falling, in a sense. And it’s scary, but freeing. This is me being vulnerable, and really captures a true and raw point in my experience that I wanted to share, and I hope that people can connect with.”
