Last month we reported Normani had reached an agreement with RCA Records to join the label once her contract with Epic expired. Now we are witnesses of the official label change (which was more than expected given Epic is too busy promoting the career of Camila Cabello and simply can't give the other Fifth Harmony girls, in this particular case Normani, all the attention and love they deserve). RCA sent yesterday the long-waited press release announcing Normani's signing, which is happening via a joint venture with Keep Cool, a Tunji Balogun-founded label (he was instrumental to the careers of SZA, Khalid or Chance the Rapper). Keep Cool is a new imprint of RCA. Normani is their first artist.
Official statements from the Keep Cool and RCA bosses as well as Normani's below:
Tunji Balogun comments; “Normani is a dynamic, multi-talented young woman with vibrant energy and a powerful spirit. We are extremely excited to welcome her into the RCA family and I’m honored to announce her as the first artist signed to Keep Cool. We are all looking forward to watching Normani thrive and flourish as we create incredible music and unforgettable moments together.”
Normani says; “I'm so incredibly grateful to be able to be in a place where I can explore myself as an artist and what I’m capable of. Never in a million years did I think I would be in this position in 2018. Everyone has been so supportive and patient, thank you so much to my fans for giving me the opportunity. I'm so thankful to my girls that we created this space among ourselves to explore and branch out creatively. Fifth Harmony has always been and will always be home. I'd like to say thank you to Tunji and Peter for believing in the vision that I have for myself as an artist. I'm appreciative for their commitment and perseverance.”
Peter Edge (Chairman & CEO, RCA Records) states; “We are thrilled to welcome Normani as the first artist under the Keep Cool/RCA Records imprint. Normani’s talent and charisma really sets her apart as a leading lady in the industry and I know she will bring that same energy and more to her solo career.”
Now watch the precise moment the "Love Lies" singer puts her signature on her new contract:
Normani is currently working on her debut solo album, which is expected to come out in late 2018.
PS: Talking to Us Weekly in an interview this week, Normani spoke of Camila Cabello, and she did so using very lovely words. She said basically praised her! So no bad blood anymore? A collaboration can't be ruled out anymore? So exciting!
Though Normani calls the other women in Fifth Harmony her “sisters” and “biggest cheerleaders,” she has not heard from Cabello, 21, since embarking on a solo career last month. But there are zero hard feelings. “She’s killing it. She’s freaking killing it. I’m super proud of her,” gushed the X Factor alum. “She is in her own space and she’s happy.”
