AceShowbiz - Normani Kordei is hard at work on her debut solo album from lockdown after promising COVID-19 won't delay the project.
While there had been concerns the coronavirus pandemic would delay the release, Normani told Britain's Daily Star newspaper she's taking the lyrics of the girls' chart-topping hit "Work From Home" to heart and laying down vocals while she's in self-isolation.
"I have all the gear and my vocal producer is actually here in L.A. (Los Angeles) too," she said.
Explaining the two communicate via FaceTime as they remain in lockdown, she added, "Honestly, it's not that different to us being in the studio, because typically I'll be in the recording booth and he'll be in the engineering room anyway."
The singer, who rose to fame on "The X Factor U.S." in 2012, when she was placed in the hit group, went on to gush of the project, "It's my baby, it's my first album and I am never going to get that back."
"I feel like I have worked so hard up until this point - I deserve to be happy," she smiled.
