Two Listen Review Of Normani's "Wild Side" Feat. Cardi B

wild side normani and cardi b review


Ok, here is my "two listen" review of Normani and Cardi B's "Wild Side."


After two listens, I'm still not sure how I feel about "Wild Side." It's cool track, but something is missing. There was no stand-out part of the song that made me want to go back to sing along with Normani. I feel like it's one of those songs that you don't turn off when it comes on, but you also don't have it in your playlist. It's not a bad song, it's just not better than what I am already lsitening to.

As for Cardi B, she was not needed. Featured artists should add to a single, not take away from it. Cardi B is not a featured artist, and that has been proven. She did not fit at all, and maybe that is what is throwing me off. If she was needed for promo, they should have given her a nice Lil executive producer tag, so she would still be invested in promoting. With that said, I really do appreciate how Cardi made Normani feel like a superstar tonight while on IG Live. Normani was obviously nervous, and Cardi B really appeared to ease some of those nerves.



I was expecting more from the video. I liked the different scenes that Normani gave us. But, again, I feel like Cardi's part was the letdown. I'm not picking on Ole Girl, but we have seen the girl-on-girl thing with her before. We know she is bisexual. We have seen her naked. It's too predictable and too deja vu for me.

Another thing, since this was Normani's song, I felt everything should have felt like it was her vision. A few things feel like it's Cardi B presenting Normani.


I reserve the right to change my opinion at a later date, LOL.
