Normani takes the stage at the 2019 VMAs to perform her hit single “Motivation.”

Normani’s performance was that of a veteran pop star.  From beginning to end Normani

Normani performance homage to the late 1990s/early 2000s hip-hop, with odes to “Crazy In Love” by Beyonce, and Jennifer Lopez’s “I’m Real.” The bop was co-written by Ariana Grande, 26, who Normani opened for on Grande’s “Sweetener Tour.” After the single/video dropped, Ariana tweeted that she was “proud” of Normani. “i love you so much. Thank you for believing in me the way that you have sis and for being my biggest cheerleader,” Normani tweeted back.

“I shot the video a month ago with Dave Meyers while I was in the middle of the Sweetener tour with Ariana Grande,” Normani told Fader. “I flew in literally after a show — it had to be 2 a.m. in L.A. I only had like four hours of sleep, and then I had to do hair and make-up. I had five espresso shots from Starbucks and one day to do all that choreography that you saw in the video.”
