Normani Will Perform At The 2021 MTV Video Music Awards

She’s set to perform “Wild Side.”

It’s official: Normani will be hitting the stage at the 2021 MTV VMAs. She confirmed the news to Harper’s Bazaar.

It will mark her first live performance of the single “Wild Side.”

In an exclusive interview with ESSENCE, the singer revealed she is prepping her debut album. “I have been remaining creative this summer in the studio finally preparing for the release of my debut album. I am eager to tour and put more visuals out for my fans. This summer has been music, music and more music,” she said.

Cardi B is featured on the song, but recently gave birth to her second child and will not appear onstage with the singer.

This will be Normani’s second solo performance at the MTV VMAs. In 2019, she shut the stage down when she performed her single “Motivation,” which was complete with an ode to the early 2000s and a dance sequence.

Chlöe Bailey, who is performing under a mononym, will also perform during the show. She will give a sizzling set of her song “Have Mercy,” which is due out tonight at 12am. Bailey is also prepping her for debut solo release.
