Singer Normani has shared her past struggles when she was a member of famous group in 2010s, Fifth Harmony, which consist other members like Camila Cabello, Ally Brooke, Lauren Jauregui and Dinah Jane.
In an interview with Allure Magazine, the singer said she was not regarded as a singer and targeted with racism comments.
The Motivation hitmaker has been candid about her time in Fifth Harmony, she said she was a victim of racist tweets for being part of it.
“I’ve always felt like the underdog in anything that I’ve ever done,” she told the outlet.
“I didn’t get to really sing in the group. I felt like I was overlooked,” Normani says. “That idea has been projected on me. Like, this is your place.”
“Yes, I can throw ass. But I can also give you a proper eight-count, and I can do ballet, and I can do contemporary dance,” she noted. “If I want to sing this pop ballad, then you’re going to love it! While you see my Black face!”
She attributes her work ethic, which is something she learned from her parents at a very young age, for her resilience and success.
“When I show up, I’m ready,” she says. “You can’t point the finger at me.”
Normani catch attention of many viewers on her Motivation song, and recently worked with Cardi B on sexualized music video for “Wild Side”.
