UPDATE // APRIL 19:

A Normani x Missy update!

Their collaboration is indeed still happening. Normani opened up to Billboard about it:

“I’ll be working with Missy Elliott soon, and the fact that she’s even willing to take a chance on me as a new artist means a lot, considering that she’s the one I’ve looked up to since I was a little girl,” she said.

 

 

“I literally remember dancing in my grandmother’s living room to all of Missy Elliott’s records. She’s such an innovator, and there’s no one else out there like her. The fact that she is willing to work with me…I’m like, ‘Who? Me?’”

 


 

EARLIER // APRIL 3:

Out of all of the Fifth Harmony girls, Normani appears to have the firmest grip on her solo career. While her recent collab with Khalid is dominating the digital charts, the singer is hard at work on her LP (which she says is already more than 30% complete). If the stars align, Normani could have a huge feature on it – the legendary Missy Elliott.

 

 

On Monday, Missy Tweeted that it’s a dream of hers to direct an artist’s music video. “Just like artist trusted me to write songs for them I wonder what artist would take a chance on me directing a video for them,” she wrote.

That prompted a response from Normani, and Missy responded. “Hey sis! Ya peeps hit me bout us working anyway?? hopefully we get in da studio soon.”

Normani’s forthcoming album has serious potential. She’s already tapped The Monsters and the Strangerz, Ester Dean and has a possible collab with Missy. Take all my money!
