Normani & Khalid Drop “Love Lies”

Normani has arrived. Her first official solo release, a joint single with Khalid for the Love, Simon soundtrack, is gorgeous. The track is standard alternative R&B/pop fare with luscious harmonies. Normani’s enunciation does need improvement but her harmonic intuition is truly top notch. Khalid’s voice also sounds more mature and more natural than on any track from American Teen. “Love Lies” is sultry and coy, it’s a great slice of music. Overall, Khalid and Normani are a match made in musical heaven; their voices blend beautifully and their vibe is electric. Lyrically, the song is just average, but it is truly their delivery and a vocal performance that makes this a home run. This is a track that makes me very excited for Normani’s solo debut, she’s destined for big things!

SCORE: 80
