Normani and Lauren Jauregui Have 2019 Figured Out!
Written by kingbeestar on January 18, 2019
Ex-Fifth Harmony bandmates Normani and Lauren Jauregui are not about to bow down, if this wave of bops is anything to go by! Released on the same day, Dancing With a Stranger and More Than That are bona fide chart staples that are a sure fire way to kickstart 2019 on a high.
Dancing With a Stranger- Sam Smith and Normani
After the two chart-toppers started giving hints that a collab was in the works, fans have waited with bated breath to hear the voices of two of their favorite crooners belt out a tune together. Sam Smith is a big Fifth Harmony fan after all, so working with one of the members of his beloved girl group was not far-fetched. The song is the quintessential tale of moving on from an ex-lover and getting with someone new, and as generic as that sounds, Sam Smith and Normani’s delivery is borderline perfection as their gravely complementary voices croon through the lyrics: “Look what you made me do, I’m with someone new, oh baby, I’m dancing with a stranger..” they seamlessly sing through the hook. The duet bears an RnB-cum-pop sound and is bound to resonate and strike a chord with music enthusiasts. The duet is already impacting radio charts a week after its release, further perpetuating Normani’s takeover!
More Than That-Lauren Jauregui
After releasing the chillingly powerful ballad ‘Expectations’ as her debut single, Lauren Jauregui is back and more defiant than ever with this sultry Murda Beatz-produced number. More Than That is the perfect example of a club banger that you will need to tell off a possible admirer in the club. Jauregui’s distinct voice will have you all up in your feels and virtually take you all the way to the club. The accompanying video perfectly captures the lyrical essence of the song. Set in what appears to be a sleazy club, a scantily-clad Lauren Jauregui makes quite the entrance with her entourage and are seen downing shots with their eyes fixated on the strippers. With such cuts, Lauren’s upcoming debut album will be an indisputable blockbuster.
