Normani Kordei covered Solange's "Don't Touch My Hair" and "Cranes in the Sky," and it sounds so magical
Given the recent turn of events surrounding Fifth Harmony’s diminished lineup, most of their fans have been understandably focused on how the group will function as a foursome. We hope the ladies will be just fine moving forward, but in the meantime, Normani Kordei covered two songs from Solange’s critically acclaimed and all-around amazing A Seat at the Table album that will put everyone’s attention back where it belongs — off the drama and back on 5H’s undeniable creativity and vocal talent.
Kordei’s put her spin on Solo’s “Don’t Touch My Hair” and the Grammy-nominated single “Cranes in the Sky,” which has already received the remix treatment by everyone from Common to Rick Ross. While we’re obsessed with the originals and the remixes, we are catching some major ~vibes~ from Kordei’s smooth-sounding mashup of Solange’s super laid-back jams.

People are shook…

We couldn’t agree more, Normani, and we cannot wait to hear more of your creative covers!
