Megan Thee Stallion and Normani have teamed up on a new song titled ‘Diamonds’ which is the lead single to the Birds of Prey album (to go with the original motion picture to be released in February 2020). I am becoming a huge fan of Normani and this collaboration is exactly what I needed. The fun, upbeat, sassy tune really gets me in the mood to dance.
Kicking off the song with the classic line ‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ which grips listeners straight away. Telling the story behind the song straight away. The production from the start is inviting and really fun to go along with the lyrics. It is quite the female-empowering song with Megan Thee Stallion adding the lyric ‘supershero’ into her verse. Very fitting for the film – high energy.
Megan Thee Stallion really knows how to rap – as trendy people would say – she is spitting bars. Her verses are very fast-paced, quite iconic really. Normani’s smooth vocals really work on this track and ables the song to dip to a more softer approach in some parts – you could say they are giving listeners a short break from the intense verses. This collaboration is perfect. We are still waiting for that debut album Normani – just a reminder.
