Aaliyah’s Uncle Speaks On Normani/Cardi B’s ‘Wild Side’
It’s no secret that Normani shook up the internet last week with her new single and video for ‘Wild Side’ featuring Cardi B. The song has an undeniable 90s R&B vibe to it and rumor has it, a sample of Aaliyah’s ‘One In A Million.’ Many Aaliyah fans were confused as to how a sample was approved without the late singer’s music not even being available on streaming platforms.
Aaliyah’s uncle and manager, Barry Hankerson told TMZ he believes Normani was inspired by Aaliyah’s music but added that he believes it would have been more honorable had the singer have gotten permission to use the sample beforehand.
Normani’s team says contrary to popular belief, there is no Aaliyah sample being used on ‘Wild Side.’
