Immediately upon release, Normani‘s “Wild Side” skyrocketed to the top trending YouTube video, where it seems likely to stay thanks to an NSFW verse by Cardi B and a killer music video.
The former Fifth Harmony member continues to stand out in her solo career. Via EW:
Directed by Tanu Muino, the mastermind behind Cardi’s “Up” and Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call My by Your Name)” videos, and choreography by Sean Bankhead (who also crafted the moves for Normani’s “Motivation” video), “Wild Side” is seductive, chaotic, and dizzying — a three-minute sex jam that’s left us downright gobsmacked. The singer bends, gyrates, twirls, writhes in leopard print in a teeny-tiny private chopper, and strikes an alarming number of curious poses. This video has more angles than your high school trig test.
