Normani has announced her long-awaited debut solo album, ‘Dopamine’.

The former Fifth Harmony member recently took to her social media pages to share the bold cover of her upcoming record, featuring her flying on a giant black rocket in a vinyl chain bikini.

She captioned the cover on Instagram: “cryingg typing this rn (right now). DOPAMINE THE ALBUM. [sic]”

Although there are no further details, including a release date, it’s expected to drop this year, according to a countdown timer on her website

Last August, the 27-year-old star joined a new management company, after she parted ways with S10 Entertainment’s Brandon Silverstein in May.

A representative for the star told Rolling Stone, “With new music on the horizon, and Asrat and Creed now at the helm of her musical career, she and the rest of her team are extremely excited to embark on this new chapter and partnership. She wishes Silverstein all the best.”

The singer previously vowed not to release her new album until she feels ready.

Normani, who enjoyed chart success with her 2019 single Motivation, explained on the Today show, “Everybody says, ‘Oh, well, she should’ve dropped her album during Motivation’, which to everybody from an outside perspective seemed like the perfect time. But for me, I was just coming out of the group and I needed to figure out what I wanted my sound to sound like.”

By taking her time, she’s been able to work out what’s important to her.

She explained, “I needed to figure out what I wanted to talk about and what was important to me. And I’ve had the time to do that. So this will really be an introduction to who I really am.”
