    Normani was determined to explore "all of the layers" of her personality on her debut solo album

    The 28-year-old singer released 'Dopamine', her long-awaited debut album, earlier this month, and Normani has now revealed her ambitions behind the project


    Normani - who shot to stardom as a teenager as part of Fifth Harmony - told Vogue: "It was important for me to explore all of the layers of myself as a human being, and as a woman.

    "We're capable of feeling many different emotions at once, and being many different things at once, while still remaining true to ourselves.

    "I know what it's like to go through heartbreak. I know what it's like to be in love and feel euphoric.

    "Either way, it was important for me to feel like I had space to be vulnerable and to really talk about something real that I experienced deeply."

    Normani wants to be recognised as a "genre-less artist" in the long run.

    The 'Motivation' hitmaker is also determined to prove her "versatility" as an artist.

    She shared: "Sonically, I would say I naturally gravitate to darker-sounding things. And I love pop music, so it has nothing to do with genre. I didn't want to make an RnB record or a pop record, because I want to be considered a genre-less artist.

    "Something that I was striving for was versatility, and being able to show everybody the many different spaces I'm able to live in."

    Meanwhile, Normani recently revealed that she's been inspired by the likes of Brandy and Janet Jackson.

    The singer told Rolling Stone magazine: "They're literally the reason why I do what I do and why I'm able to be in the position that I am in ... They redefined the standard of beauty, but also the standard in music.

    "I feel like Brandy and Janet have really been disruptive in their own ways. I love the album 'Discipline' by Janet."
