American singer Normani just dropped the visuals for her new song, 'Motivation', and it will give you major nostalgia. 

The former Fifth Harmony group member pays tribute to her favourite music videos from the early 2000s.

She recreates scenes from Beyoncé's 'Crazy in Love', Jennifer Lopez's 'I'm Real' featuring Ja Rule, and Britney Spears' 'Baby One More Time'. 

Normani also pays homage to Kelly Rowland, Destiny's Child, Ciara, Aaliyah, and Ashanti.

Normani recently spoke to The Grape Juice about her music influences and how they inspired her.

"Grow­ing up, I had Janet, Toni Brax­ton, Ashan­ti and Destiny’s Child to look up to. Kel­ly [Row­land] being a choco­late god­dess, I was real­ly able to see myself in her. I felt real­ly down about a cer­tain sit­u­a­tion, and I spoke to her about it recent­ly. She was like ​‘Any­thing you need, pick up the phone’. It meant the world to me," she said.
