Last August, Normani unleashed her pop-tinged “Motivation” anthem to close out the summer. Months after vaulting into the Hot 100‘s top 40, she recruited 21 Savage to join her for the track’s energetic remix, out Monday (Oct. 28).
Savage opens up about being a certain lover’s motivation in life, but if you cross him with your lies, the relationship’s already over. “Don’t take it person’, baby, sometimes I be shy (On God)/ I’ma leave her when she say ‘I always lie’/ You can’t hear the rumors when you’re this high in the sky (Facts)/ If you can’t touch the ground, we complement each other, fly,” he raps.
The Atlanta native looks to be employing a strategy we’ve seen in the past with rappers dropping verses on poppy R&B bangers. He already hopped on Jhené Aiko‘s “Triggered” with Summer Walker earlier in October, while Normani is headed toward the release of her anticipated solo debut in 2020.
