Billboard was there as the singer met with a diverse set of producers & songwriters for a Spotify Secret Genius Songshop.
For Normani, working on her debut album means getting a second chance to prove who she really is as an artist outside of Fifth Harmony.
As a result, Spotify’s Secret Genius program wanted to curate an environment where Normani could work with her dream songwriters and producers and create something she’s proud of. Secret Genius, which aims to highlight the contribution these writers and production team members make to the music industry and artists' careers, teamed up with her label, Keep Cool/RCA Records and her management, S10 -- and the Secret Genius Songshop was born.
The three-day workshop in Los Angeles featured four studios with a diverse set of producers and songwriters in each room. Yo Pierre, London on the Track, J White and Jude Demorest were among the "geniuses" there. Normani’s whole team and some friends were present, as well as some of her favorite foods lining a buffet table to build the most comfortable music atmosphere.
