Normani Announces ‘1:59’ Single Featuring Gunna

New Normani is officially on the way, as the singer announced her new single “1:59,” featuring Gunna, appropriately at 1:59 p.m. ET on Saturday (March 23).

“soo basically my first single 1:59 will be coming out 4/26,” she captioned a post on X (formerly Twitter).

“1:59” will arrive April 26 via RCA Records. It will be the first single Normani has dropped since announcing her debut album Dopamine one month ago.

“cryingg typing this rn. DOPAMINE THE ALBUM,” she captioned her Feb. 21-dated Instagram post, which features the black-leather bikini-clad singer riding on top of a black rocket. But when inquiring minds on X (formerly known as Twitter) circled back with the singer regarding her silence after the initial album announcement, she sent a follow-up message: “Hi, Thank you for your patience. This matter will be addressed tomorrow at 1:59pm EST. – Management.”

The ex-Fifth Harmony member has yet to reveal the release date of her album, but it will come out sometime this year. In her recent Who What Wear cover story, she said, “The album feels like liberation, like a season of freedom. Not just because the record is finally coming out, but because it’s a celebration of everything I have been through to get to this moment.”

Since embarking on her solo career in 2018, Normani has released only seven singles as a lead artist, with 2019’s “Motivation” and 2022’s “Fair” being the only songs she’s released without another artist on it. She’s had two Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hits with the Sam Smith-assisted “Dancing With a Stranger” (No. 7) and the Khalid-assisted “Love Lies” (No. 9). “Motivation” and “Wild Side,” featuring Cardi B, have also charted on the Hot 100, peaking at No. 33 and No. 14, respectively.
