Normani had a break in music, but she came back with the release of Cardi B’s new single “Wild Side”. The 90s atmosphere of this song is combined with the spicy music video. Of course, one of Cardi’s features makes people talk about, but many fans also pointed out that this song seems to be a tribute to Aaliyah’s “One In A Million”.
As we all know, artists rarely get approved samples of Aaliyah because her music cannot even be played on streaming platforms.However, Aaliyah’s uncle expressed support for Normani’s singleness when talking to Normani TMZ, Noting that she should obtain permission to use the samples in advance.
Barry Hankerson, Aaliyah’s uncle and agent, told TMZ that he believes Normani was inspired by her music and said that Aaliyah would be very supportive of her career. Hankson pointed out that Aaliyah “always encourages young women pursuing a career in music and entertainment to realize their dreams.”
“I believe Aaliyah will be very supportive of young black women who choose to emulate her music and style,” Hankerson said.
He added that it would be “more glorious” if Normani tried to get approval for the “one-in-a-million” sample, but he hoped that Normani would go well in her career anyway.
Hankson said to TMZ: “I will not hinder things that reveal Aaliyah’s incredible staying power.” “So from this perspective, I hope Normanny has everything in this song and throughout his career. Go well. God bless. I think Aaliyah will be very happy.”
TMZ reported that a lawyer for Blackground Records, a record company founded by Aaliyah’s uncle, confirmed that the Aaliyah samples were not officially approved for use. The website also reported that Normani’s team said that “Wild Side” did not use a direct sample of “parts per million”.
